Paper Abstract

Data are presented for an ultra-low-loss multimode SMA connector. Histogram data showing insertion loss data below 0.6 dB will be presented for 50/125 and 100/140 fiber. These results were achieved via the use of ultra precision ceramic ferrules, controlled critical connector length, and a new termination procedure. These data were collected in conjunction with a new precision adapter. This interconnection system showed very low variability in: remating, rotation, and temperature cycling.
