I was wondering if anyone has any information on this question.

I need the smallest connector available for RF. It will be a board-to-board connection and the specs are below:

DC - 3 GHz
positive retention (SMA has a screw to retain the connection)

Any information will help.

Is this a case where the two PCBs mate to each other through a connector rather than use a cable?

Do you want a screw connection, or a push-on?

Board to Board connector use Coaxial? I have no seen that. Maybe some Board to Board series such JAE's (A Japanese Co.) products will satisfy your requirement.

once upon a time Sealectro made a slide-in slide out-out miniature coaxial connector with berylium copper finger-stock. Not sure if it went up to 3GHz, but for sure up to 1Ghz min. Anyways, maybe H&S regs killed it off due to hazardous material restrictions.

At bottom, life is all about

You could try looking for the RF Connectors you need on everything RF

There are thousands of connectors listed from multiple manufacturers, and you an narrow down by specification.

Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
