Whether it’s a military radar system, a terrestrial radio, a satellite communications downlink or high-performance test equipment, customers are routinely faced with the competing demands for higher signal count and smaller product size. SV Microwave’s SMPS multiport edge-launch connectors are the ideal solution for high-frequency, high signal-count, PCB-mount applications where density is of the utmost importance. Operating from DC to 100GHz, the SMPS connector utilizes the same features of the SMP and SMPM connectors, but in a substantially smaller package.
Features of the SMPS Board Mount Connectors Include:
- Performance to 100GHz
- Multiple port counts and detent options available
- Blindmate / push-on design (RFfortless®)
- Customized PCB footprint with design-through-simulation optimization
- Minimal impedance reflections
- High frequency, inside-the-box cable assemblies
- High density multiport connectors and blocks
- Board edge-mount to backplane
- Board-to-board interconnect
In addition to these board mount multiport connectors, SV offers a broad range of coaxial connectors and cable assemblies. Many of them are available (in stock) from our distribution partners.

The recent growth in wireless communications is staggering and, as a result, there are innumerable users of the radio frequency (RF) spectrum. To prevent interference between users, the United States has defined regulations for the transmission of radio waves in various frequency bands. Some frequency bands are reserved for public and government uses. Others are licensed to operators of communications services, like broadcast TV and cell phones. And other bands are unregulated and available for public use.
If your vocation or avocation has you working or playing in the radio frequency spectrum, keeping track of the various frequency allocations is critical. There are thirty different types of radio services and the allocations are often changing as new technologies are developed.
Quell Corporation has developed a chart of the United States’ frequency allocation to map the uses of all of the US frequency bands and their users. The chart covers frequencies from 0Hz to 300GHz.
