Sherry also described the company's Times Locking Miniature Push-on (TLMP) connectors. They represent an evolution of SMP/SMPM connectors by providing improved environmental, shielding, and power characteristics in a single interconnect that handles from DC to 60 GHz.
The vibration-proof connectors won't come undone under the stressful conditions of rugged defense applications. The figure shows how the connectors lock closed with color-coded indication of a positive mate. They'll also handle high power and high voltages at higher altitudes, thanks to a design that overlaps the insulators, cutting off a direct path to ground from the center conductor to the outer shield.
Here's a transcript of the video (it has been edited for clarity):
What we are looking at this year and proposing for our customers to find technical solutions is our InstaBend product. You can bend it right behind the connector. You have a nice opportunity to get into small areas and offer great performance and phase stability over any frequency.
In addition to that, we have our proprietary design of TLMP connector, which is a small connection interface that solves the mechanical issues of an SMPM connector. The TLMP connector is a proprietary design from Times Microwave that fits into applications in any commercial products or even test and measurement. For demanding products, to get the high performance you need, reach out to Times Microwave. We’re here to help you.
