LTI offers its line of reverse polarity SMA connectors. The ROHS compliant RPSMA from LTI are in stock and ready to ship. They are available for PCB termination or to attach to a variety of custom coaxial cable assemblies. They are designed for wireless systems manufacturers complying with FCC 15 regulations.
