RF Connector Name Compatibility Size Maximum Frequency Notes
Sub-Miniature Push-on (SMP) PO-compatible MIL-STD 348 compliant 26.5 GHz
Sub-Miniature Push-on Micro (SMPM) PPO-compatible MIL-STD 348 compliant 40 GHz
Sub-Miniature Push-on Sub-micro (SMPS) 3PO-compatible 65 GHz Small size makes SMPS the ideal choice for high density packaging and multiport applications
