SMK Develops High-Reliability Coaxial Connector
With Less Than Half the Mounting Area

   SMK has developed “IA Series” small and high reliability coaxial connectors for a wide range of applications such as automotive devices and industrial equipment.
   In recent years, as devices have become lighter, thinner, and more capable of high-speed data transmission, the connectors used in them have also been required to become even smaller and support higher transmission speeds.
   IA Series, developed against this backdrop, is approximately 56% smaller in mounting area than the SMK’s conventional vertical FAKRA connector and has favorable high-frequency characteristics covering up to 6GHz.
   The full-lock structure with mating lock mechanism ensures high connection reliability and provides automotive-grade durability against severe vibration and shock while driving.
   In addition, the mating guide structure of the receptacle and plug greatly contributes to improving workability.

Smart mirrors, driver monitoring systems (DMS),
car navigation equipment, telematics control units (TCU),
industrial equipment, etc.
