SMP Blind-mate Connectors   

SMPThe new Anoison SMP BLIND-MATE CONNECTOR offer customers a low cost alternative for those applications where the small size of an SMP is desired. They are available in both through hole and surface mount configurations and smooth bore or limited bore interfaces.

Anoison SMP micro-miniature connectors have been optimized for VSWR performance in microstrip designs and feature excellent matching characteristics. Cable connectors will accept flexible cable, conformable and semi-rigid cables.The Full Detent interface is generally used for cable connections, where a more secure mating is required. The Limited Detent is typically selected as the snap-on interface for PCB mount and blind-mate applications.

Two kinds of slide-on interfaces, Smooth Bore and Catcher's Mitt, compensate for axial and radial misalignment, and have the same engage / disengage force. However the Catcher's Mitt interface design makes it easier to connect more accurately, and is generally used for blind-mate applications.
