This letter presents a novel low cost through-the-wall SMA connector and the transition structures from the SMA to a grounded coplanar waveguide (GCPW). The SMA connector has two short metal legs extended from the outer conductor used to reduce the discontinuity of the transition. The parameters of the GCPW are designed to match the geometry of the coaxial. A matching stub is introduced in the center conductor line to further improve the performance of the transition. A prototype device is developed and measured. The measurement results show the return loss of the proposed transition is better than 20 dB up to 26.5 GHz.
