The female SMA has a central receptacle and an outer casing with external threads. The SMA connector (Sub-Miniature Version A) is a semi-precision RF coaxial connector with a screwing coupling feature. The female connector has a threaded barrel with a density of 36 threads per inch.
The male connector has a hex nut that fits securely around the female barrel for tight coupling. This coupling is fairly secure and has outstanding mechanical durability. Connectors are made out of stainless steel or brass, and coated with nickel or gold around the contacts.
Standard SMA and RP-SMA connectors are not compatible. This reversing is done on some equipment where there is a danger that the user might damage the connectors while coupling due to their position or repeated mating. SMA connectors have an impedance of 50 Ohms used from DC to 18GHz. Both male and female connectors use polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) dielectric. The connectors have a coupling cycle of 500 times, which can only be achieved by applying the recommended torque while coupling.
