SMA is an acronym for SubMiniature version A. It uses a threaded
interface. Semi-precision 50 Ω SMA connectors provide excellent electrical
performance from DC to 18 GHz although some 'general purpose' versions
will not perform as well. SMA connectors are compact in size and mechanically
have outstanding durability. SMA connectors can be mated with other
APC-3.5 mm connectors.
SMA is available both in Standard
Reverse Polarity (RP) versions. Reverse polarity is a keying system
accomplished with a reverse interface, and ensures that reverse polarity
interface connectors do not mate with standard interface connectors.
Most manufactures accomplish this by inserting female contacts into
plugs and male contacts into jacks. Other manufacturers use reverse
threading to accomplish reverse polarity keying.
