RF Connectors Manufacturer
The reverse polarity SMA (RP-SMA or RSMA) is a variation of the SMA connector specification which reverses the gender of the interface. The term "reverse polarity" here refers only to the gender of the connector's contact pin, and not in any way to the signal polarity. RP-SMA connectors were introduced to separate professional and commercially available equipment.
Their purpose is to prevent unintentional or intentional connection of high-gain professional antennas with SMA connectors and commercial wireless equipment, which would violate some federal and international laws. Lighthorse Technologies manufactures both SMA Connectors & RP-SMA Connectors.
