Multiport Mini-SMP

Rosenberger introduces Multiport Mini-SMP cable assemblies and PCB connectors which can be mounted solderless on printed circuit boards. The PCB connectors offer superior signal integrity for all kinds of printed circuit boards and can be connected with Mini-SMP – RPC-2.92 cable assemblies for frequencies DC to 40 GHz, or with Mini-SMP – RPC-1.85 cable assemblies for frequencies up to 65 GHz. The system is available with 8 or 16 channels. 

The Multiport Mini-SMP system is very cost-effective – designed solderless, easy to assemble by using screws, reusable (high number of mating cycles), low abrasion, damage-free connection.  

Challenging test & measurement applications are semiconductor test equipment testing, system testing or applications where the DUT changes frequently.


Product Portfolio

  • Multiport Mini-SMP PCB connectors (8 or 16 channels)
  • Multiport Mini-SMP - RPC-2.92 cable assemblies up to 40 GHz
  • Multiport Mini-SMP - RPC-1.85 cable assemblies up to 65 GHz
  • Different cable lengths available

The Solderless System – Cost-Effective

The Multiport Mini-SMP system is engineered solderless – all devices can be easily mounted by using screws: the PCB connectors to the PCB board as well as the cable assemblies to the PCB connectors.
The screw-transition to the PCB board avoids signal distortion and has a lot of advantages:

  • Reliable and reusable
  • High number of mating cycles
  • Damage-free connection
  • Low abrasion
  • Compatible with standard Mini-SMP interface (smooth bore)

The result is a high-performance and very cost-effective system for test & measurement applications.
