SMA connector

(SubMiniature A connector) A threaded plug and socket used for coaxial cable and optical fibers. The first optical fiber connector to be standardized, bi-directional transmission requires two cables and two SMA sockets at each end. SMA is specified by the TIA as FOCIS-1. See fiber-optic connectors and FOCIS.


Amphenol SMA Fiber Connector
Amphenol's 905 and 906 series were the first SMA connectors to become widely used. They are available with different hole sizes. (Image courtesy of Amphenol Corporation, www.amphenol-fiberoptics.com)







Reverse Polarity (RP-SMA)
Reverse Polarity SMA connectors are used for coaxial cable, and the socket contains the pin instead of the plug. RP-SMA connectors are used in this example to attach three Wi-Fi antennas to this TP-LINK wireless router.

Determining the location of the SMA connector, the output port of the connector is approximated as a plane circle.
The input of this network is done through a SMA connector and SMP connectors are used to connect the network with the subarrays.
SMA cables from the parBERT generator are attached to the driver test card SMA connectors. The SMA connectors on the receiver test card feed into a sampling scope for capturing the eye waveform.
First, the SMA connector and wirebond interconnect are modeled using HFSS.
A tapered microstrip balun is relatively easy to manufacture compared to the above feeding techniques and easy to connect with the external SMA connectors or other RF circuits.
If it is desired to be fed via a 50 [ohm] SMA connector, then microstrip line must be designed to work as an impedance transformer with slanted width or stepped sections.
The assembly option employs a custom designed high-power SMA connector, which utilizes air gap technology to eliminate all energy absorbing materials at the fiber end.
When a signal enters the backplane structure, it first sees the discontinuity due to the SMA connector of the test card; this is point A in Figure 5.
It also features 802.1x authentication and (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK) wireless security mechanisms for network protection and has a standard antenna which can be replaced with a reverse SMA connector type by the user.
Optical input is via a fiber optic with SMA connector, or directly though the input slit.
