SMA-RP Subminiature Connectors

The SMA-RP connector has the same performance,  usage and external housing as SMA connector. Its compact design, high durability and outstanding electrical performance have made it one of the most widely used connectors in RF and Microwave applications.

The main differences between them lie in which the male and female interface is switched.  The internal prong or pin of the RP-SMA plug connector is replaced by a receptacle. Similarly, The RP-SMA female connector keeps the female receptacle, but is housed in a plug casing.
