SMB Series

SMB subminiature coaxial connectors are based on MIL-C-39012. They are designed for 50 Ohm systems with a working frequency up to 4 GHz.
The snap-on mating design can offer not only a low mating force, but also a fast and reliable connection.
The major application of SMB series connectors are microwave, phone and other telecommunication devices.
