RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Pasternack Enterprises Introduces New Line of SMP and SMPM Adapters Capable of 65 GHz
February 21, 2013 – Irvine, CA - Pasternack Enterprises, Inc., a leading ISO 9001:2008 manufacturer
and global supplier of RF and microwave products, expands inventory of in-series and between-series
SMP and Mini SMP adapters for millimeter wave applications.
SMP and Mini-SMP, also known as SMPM, are coaxial adapters capable of converting multiple connector
types including SMP, Mini SMP, SMA, 2.92mm, 2.4mm, 3.5mm and 1.85mm connectors. Frequency
ratings for these SMP and SMPM microwave adapters range from 18 GHz to 65 GHz depending
on type and style. These new higher frequency SMP and Mini-SMP versions are compatible and fully
mate-able with Corning Gilbert GPO™ and GPPO™ connectors.
Pasternack's new lines
of SMP adapters and SMPM adapters utilize passivated stainless steel construction and Beryllium
copper (BeCu) designs for the SMP female connectors. These new RF adapters are ideal for
use on test systems with SMA, 2.92mm or 2.4mm test ports that must interface with a Mini SMP
or SMP equipped Device Under Test (DUT). Other common applications for these SMP and SMPM adapters
include millimeter wave systems that require a blind-mate interface for SMA, 2.92mm or 2.4mm
connectors and fiber systems requiring broad bandwidth interface to an RF system.
“High density applications require ‘small-footprint' connectors, which make the SMP and Mini
SMP connectors an excellent choice for co-locating many RF connectors,” says Gerry Camacho,
VP of Technical Marketing at Pasternack Enterprises, Inc. “SMP and Mini SMP connectors are becoming
the connector of choice for broadband fiber optic applications as interfaces for broadband RF
The new SMP and Mini SMP adapters from Pasternack are available now.
