The International Electrotechnical Commission has published the IEC 61169-48 standard. IEC 61169-48 ed1.0 applies to “Radio-frequency connectors – Part 48: Sectional specification for series BMP R.F. coaxial connectors.” The standard is available for purchase on the IEC’s website.


“IEC 61169-48:2014, which is a sectional specification (SS), provides information and rules for the preparation of detail specifications (DS) for series BMP RF coaxial connectors with blind mating, typically for use in 50 Ohms board to board connection. They may also be used with RF cables or micro-strips in microwave, telecommunication, wireless and other fields. Their operating frequency limit is up to 6 GHz. It describes the interface dimensions with gauging information, electrical and mechanical performance including the mandatory tests selected from IEC 61169-1:2013 applicable to all DS relating to type BMP connectors. This specification indicates the recommended performance characteristics to be considered when writing a DS and covers test schedules and inspection requirements.”
