RPSMAConnector

"RP-SMA" stands for "Reverse-Polarity Sub-Minature type A". RP-SMA Connectors are the cousins of SMA-Connectors, and provide identical performance.

Reverse-Polarity connectors differ only by the gender of their center contact. For example, a male plug has a female center contact.

Reverse-Polarity connectors are commonly used on 802.11 gear due to America's FCC requirements (Part 15.203) where by such equipment needs non-standard connectors. Although less common, other modified SMA solutions to satisfy the FCC requirements are to either use "reverse-thread" or "shrouded" connectors.

RP-SMA should be referred to as "RG-SMA" - "Reverse Gender SMA"
