Amphenol RF has expanded its SubMiniature version A (SMA) to Amphenol micro coaxial (AMC) cable assembly series with the addition of the durable straight SMA plug connector and the ultraminiature right angle AMC connector on 1.13 mm micro coax cable. These assemblies are ideal for internet of things and antenna applications where there may be internal space constraints.

The 1.13 mm micro coax cable is extremely flexible and allows this assembly to be used in tight spaces without any concerns for damaging the unit. The SMA to AMC cable assembly is available in standard lengths from 50 mm to 300 mm. Custom lengths are available upon request.

The SMA to AMC cable assembly features a small footprint and low profile, and provides reliable electric performance up to 6 GHz. This 50 ohm assembly is compatible with the industry standard U.FL interface, which allows for additional mating options. This assembly is ideal for wireless handheld devices and board-to-board applications connecting wireless radio modules to external antennas.
