Abstract

As a basic component, electrical connectors play a major role in the transmission and control of electric signals. In this paper, SubMiniature version A (SMA) coaxial connectors, which are widely used in the microwave equipment and radio frequency circuits, were taken as the research objects to investigate the deg-radation of electrical connectors in salt spray environment. The simulation model was built to analyze the failure mechanism. An accelerated test was conducted to study its electrical contact prop-erties and obtain the degradation data. The experimental and simulation results showed consistent trends. Accordingly, the degradation of the high-frequency performance for the electrical connector in the salt spray environment is mainly due to the for-mation of corrosion film on the contact surface.
