Molex Inc. and Radiall are expanding their jointly-developed line of RF coaxial interconnect solutions for board-to-board, module-to-module and panel-to-panel telecom applications. The SMP-MAX series now includes symmetrical adapters that Molex is designing, manufacturing and marketing to global customers.

The new SMP-MAX symmetrical adapters are said to eliminate the risk of assembly errors during manufacturing. With over 80 specific SMP-MAX connector designs, the series is one of the fastest growing product lines in the RF industry. SMP-MAX is currently deployed in wireless telecom projects in North America, Europe and Asia.

The SMP-MAX can handle a maximum board-to-board distance tolerance of a 2mm gap without a spring. It also features a 3 degree tilt (radial travel), operates at the frequency range of DC-6GHz, offers 1.2max VSWR up to 3GHz, and can handle up to 300W of power at 2.7GHz.
