The Micro CoaXial (MCX) is a miniature RF connector featuring snap-on coupling. The series is ideal for lightweight and space-limited applications, with has the same inner and outer contact interface dimensions as SMB but 30% smaller. The connector design has been standardised under European CECC 22220, and IEC 61169-36 specifications. Despite standards identifying an operating frequency to 3 GHz, most manufacturers commercially offer connectors to 6 GHz.
The SMA "SubMiniature A" connector series is one of the most commonly used RF connector due to its durability and performance. SMA series has a 1/4 - 36 UNS threaded coupling and can operate up to 18 GHz when using semi-flex or semi-rigid cable types.
