Set of 4 Male Coaxial 18 GHz SMA to ITA Adapters

ITA = Interchangeable Test Adapter



MACOM in their infinite wisdom renamed the standard names for SMA and ITA to their own letters.

OSM (Tyco/MA Com Nomenclature) = SMA
OSP (Tyco/MA Com Nomenclature) = ITA

These are 18 GHz quick release connectors to SMA.  They are SMA at one end and the other end is a proprietary quick release connector called ITA.  If you look for these on the Tyco web site you need to look for OSM to OSP. 

These are the connectors used in numerous Agilent RF Plug-in Modules such as the 86100 series oscilloscopes.  They are virtually identical to the M/A-COM 1059756 Connector which we also have in stock.  They click right into a  M/A-COM 1059724-1 Connector.

The 18 GHz Coaxial contact VSWR is 1.05 and increases 0.005f (GHz) up to 18 GHz.  RF Leakage is -(90-fGHz) dB minimum.  Insertion loss is .06x√f(GHz).  Contact Resistance is less that 2 milliohms (center and outer contacts).  ITA contacts accept an SMA Plug.

ITA = Interchangeable Test Adapter

OSM (Tyco/MA Com Nomenclature) = SMA
OSP (Tyco/MA Com Nomenclature) = ITA

Equipment Notes:

Used in module 510108176 ITA 90 Series 18 GHz 8SMA .

These are new adapters and when dealing with precision adapter, this is an important.  Even minor wear on a used adapter can cause decreased performance.
