Cinch Connectivity Solutions Announces the Johnson™ 45° PCB Mount SMA Connector

Waseca, MN [December 20, 2019] Cinch Connectivity Solutions, a Bel group company, (NASDAQ: BELFA and BELFB) and global leader in delivering reliable connectivity solutions, announces the addition of a 45° connector to the SMA series. This type of connector is commonly used in test and measurement applications, semi-conductor testing fixtures, PC board characterization, and networking applications.

Cinch Connectivity Solutions’ 45° PCB mount SMA connector is designed to provide excellent performance up to 18 GHz, with a maximum VSWR of 1.30 up to a frequency of 12 GHz and a VSWR of 1.50 for 12 GHz to 18 GHz frequency. 45° connectors are commonly used for mid- board launch in tight enclosures and board to board applications, where height and width restrictions do not allow for vertical mount or end launch connectors.
