MPD Fully Functioning During the Covid-19 Emergency

We just thought we’d let all of you know that it is business as usual at Octagon Communications and MPD. All necessary precautions have been taken, and, as several of our staffers already work remotely, the office is open for business until we are told otherwise.

The March issues of MPD and MMD will arrive on schedule, and of course our website and the digital edition will continue to be available.

Feel free to contact any of us with questions or concerns!

We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy.

New Coax Connector

A new addition to the Johnson™ SMPM product line, this coax connector,—an SMPM Male—Full Detent, Solder End Launch, is designed for very high frequency applications where space limitation and package density are critical. These SMPM connectors are 30 percent smaller than SMP connectors. The SMPM interface offers superior performance from DC up to 65 GHz and is compatible with all SMPM and GPPO® connectors. As a Straddle Mount style, it supports a 0.063” board thickness, with tighter tolerance spacing of 0.066”, ensuring a snug fit to the PCB.
