Radio-frequency connectors. Part 15: Sectional specification - RF coaxial connectors with inner diameter of outer conductor 4,13 mm (0,163 in) with threaded coupling - Characteristic impedance 50 Ω (Type SMA) (IEC 61169-15:2021)

This part of IEC 61169, which is a sectional specification (SS), provides information and rules
for the preparation of detail specifications (DS) for RF coaxial connectors with inner diameter
of outer conductor 4,13 mm (0,163 in) with threaded coupling with a characteristic impedance
of 50 Ω (type SMA).
This document specifies mating face dimensions for high performance connectors – grade 1,
dimensional details of standard test connectors – grade 0, gauging information and tests
selected from IEC 61169-1, applicable to all detail specifications relating to series SMA RF
connectors.
This document indicates recommended performance characteristics to be considered when
writing a detail specification and it covers test schedules and inspection requirements for
assessment levels M and H.
The SMA types RF coaxial connectors are used with all kinds of RF cables and microstrips in
microwave transmission systems. The operating frequency is up to 18 GHz. These connectors
can be intermated with 3,5 mm (IEEE 287-2007) and 2,92 mm (IEC 61169-35) connectors.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as "IEC

Publication(s)"). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

Governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 61169-15 has been prepared by subcommittee 46F: RF and

microwave passive components, of IEC technical committee 46: Cables, wires, waveguides,

RF connectors, RF and microwave passive components and accessories.

This first edition cancels and replaces IEC 60169-15 published in 1979 and the amendment 1

published in 1996. This edition constitutes a technical revision.

This document specifies mating face dimensions for high performance connectors – grade 1,

dimensional details of standard test connectors – grade 0, gauging information and tests

selected from IEC 61169-1, applicable to all detail specifications relating to series SMA RF

connectors.

This document indicates recommended performance characteristics to be considered when

writing a detail specification and it covers test schedules and inspection requirements for

assessment levels M and H.

The SMA types RF coaxial connectors are used with all kinds of RF cables and microstrips in

microwave transmission systems. The operating frequency is up to 18 GHz. These connectors

can be intermated with 3,5 mm (IEEE 287-2007) and 2,92 mm (IEC 61169-35) connectors.

Choose tolerance to give the requirement of 50 Ω. For non-center contact connector, dimension p may

deviate from the values given when the centre conductor of the cable is used as the contact pin. In this case,

the inner diameter of the outer conductor is identical to the outer conductor of the cable.

Dimension q should be such that the reference planes coincide, and the connectors meet the required

environmental performance.

The test procedure is as follows:
a) Sizing test

The gauge A shall be inserted into the socket-centre contact three times. This is a sizing

operation and should only be carried out when the socket-centre contact is removed from

the connector.
b) Insertion test

Following the sizing operation, and if required in the detail specification, the force

necessary to insert gauge B fully into the socket-centre contact shall be measured. When

this test is required, the maximum permitted insertion force shall then be specified and

shall not exceed 13,3 N.
c) Retention test

After the sizing test, the gauge B shall be inserted into socket-centre contact. The contact

shall retain the mass of the gauge B in a vertical downward position.

Dimension q should be such that the reference planes coincide, and the connectors meet the required

environmental performance.

Choose to give the required performance 50 Ω ± 0,5 Ω. The given nominal diameter in the table is based on

the assumption that a PTFE dielectric having a dielectric constant of 2,02 is used.

5 Quality assessment procedures
5.1 General

Subclauses 5.2 to 5.3 provide recommended ratings, performance and test conditions to be

considered when writing a detail specification (DS). They also provide an appropriate

schedule of tests with minimum levels of conformance inspection sampling, together with the

pro forma blank detail specification (BDS) and instructions for the preparation of a detail

specification.
5.2 Ratings and characteristics
Preferred climatic categories are given in Table 6.

The values indicated below are recommended for SMA series RF connectors and are given

for the writer of the detail specification. They are applicable for the condition when the

connectors are fully mated. Rating and characteristics are given in Table 7.

Certain tests are listed without any recommended values being given. These tests will usually

not be required. When these tests are required, appropriate values shall be entered in the

detail specification at the discretion of the specification writer.
Table 6 – Preferred climatic categories
Climate type Grade * Temperature range Steady damp heat
