Radiall is proud to announce a new ultra-miniature PEEK™ molded insulator, which has been implemented on most SMPM cable and receptacle connectors. This innovative insulator is less than 2mm (.08 in) in diameter. Its shape has been optimized using advanced simulation software to provide excellent RF performances up to 65 GHz.
PEEK™ is a polymer thermoplastic with outstanding mechanical and chemical resistance properties that are retained to high temperature. Because of its robustness, PEEK™ is used to make items used in demanding applications.
Radiall SMPM connectors using PEEK™ insulator are less subject to mechanical stress and overheating during soldering assembly process. Center contact captivation and retention is higher than with traditional machined PTFE insulators.
The SMPM product range includes plugs for .047 and .085 semi-rigid cable, PCB and panel receptacles, hermetic receptacles with integrated glass bead, fixed and spring-loaded adapters. Extraction tools are also available to disconnect right-angle plugs or adapters.
