The success of the OSM (SMA) connector created a need for a smaller version for reduced packaging requirements. The OSSM (SSMA) series connector was designed to a size compatible with smaller diameter semi-rigid cable. The coupling thread is 10-36 UNS thread.
OSSM connectors are available for both semi-rigid and flexible coaxial cable. Panel and bulkhead mount, strip transmission line type, micro-strip transmission type and hermetically sealed connectors and in-series adapters give designers complete flexibility for component and system design.
