Tyco Electronics OSP Coaxial Connectors

TE Connectivity offers the original OSP (BMA) series of blind mate connectors. This unique connector series can be used in a wide variety of RF and microwave interconnect applications to provide excellent electrical performance to 22GHz. The patented OSP interface has set the standard for blind mate RF/microwave connectors for over two decades. In the static mounting configuration the OSP interface allows for +/-.004 inch radial and up to .030 inch (.015 recommended) axial mating misalignment, while maintaining electrical performance and durability characteristics. The float mount design allows for +/-.020 inch radial and .050 inch maximum axial misalignment. This float mounting compliance is provided by a spring mechanism incorporated in the jack (female) receptacle design that permits both radial and axial movement.

OSP connectors are available for semi-rigid cables in both a direct solder and OSCC Solderless Compression Crimp attachment and for many MIL-DTL-17 flexible cables with crimp attachment. Ease of assembly permits users unskilled in soldering techniques to rapidly produce cable assemblies with consistently excellent mechanical and electrical performance. Receptacles are available in a variety of panel mount, press fit, hermetically sealed, P.C. board mount, and field replaceable configurations.
