For high-frequency signal generation and detection in-vacuum (HV/UHV), Allectra has developed two feedthroughs, the 242-SMAD27G and the 242-SMAD40G which allow up to 27 and 40GHz frequencies respectively.
To complement these we are introducing new K-type SMA cables for in-vacuum use, the 380-SMAK series.
SMA-K cables available online.
Cable type: Semi-rigid
Connector specification: SMA(K) – 2.92
Cable diameter: 2.10mm
Cable material: CuSn, Tin-soaked braid
Inner conductor: Silver/copper-plated steel, 0.53mm
Test voltage (cable): 3kV
Max. frequency: 40GHz
Attenuation: @ 5GHz 1.6db/m
Max. temperature –
Technical background: SMA – Sub-miniature version A connectors were designed for radiofrequency signals typically to 18 GHz with 50 Ohm impedance.
To access higher frequencies (46GHz) the precision 2.92 mm, or K-type was developed. The thread remains the same, with higher precision around the inner conductor.
