Edgeboard Connector features bottom shielding.

Press Release Summary:

Dec 19, 2011 - For optimal performance through 18 GHz, V-Bite(TM) RF Edgeboard Connector comes in bottom-shielded female Type N model designed to eliminate inductance by shielding open bottom. Connector snaps onto PCB prior to hand or reflow soldering, and is supported from below and above board to disperse rotational torque relief, minimizing rotational stress on solder area. Offered in impedance of 50 W, Type N V-Bite(TM) is suited for joining coaxial cables in high-power RF applications.

RF Edgeboard Connectors' Bottom Shielding Minimizes RF Leakage in an Array of High Power Applications

Ledgewood, NJ, ...Bomar Interconnect Products, Inc. expanded their proprietary line of V-Bite(TM) RF edgeboard connectors to include a bottom-shielded female Type N part. Engineered for higher-power applications, the new threaded RF connector (part number 161VUS504EFT) notably features a bottom shield to help eliminate inductance by shielding the open bottom of the connector. Further, as it is engineered to be soldered directly to the PC board's bottom ground layer, the new bottom-shielded Type N V-Bite provides superior manufacturing tolerances to ensure excellent and consistent performance characteristics through 18 GHz. The V-Bite Series comprises Type N, weather-sealed Type N, Type F, threaded through-panel BNC and standard BNC, twin BNC, mini-BNC, and TNC styles. All components in the series provide unparalleled signal integrity as their anti-rotation abilities reinforce the reliability of PCB connections. Designed to snap onto the PCB prior to hand or reflow soldering, the devices are supported from both below and above the board to disperse rotational torque relief, which reduces rotational stress on the solder area. Their low profile (1/2 the parts' diameter) and small footprint meet many customer application demands for today's high-density designs.

Offered in an impedance of 50 W, Bomar's new bottom-shielded Type N V-Bite(TM) is ideally suited for joining coaxial cables in broad range of high-power RF applications in which a reliable, durable, weatherproof, connector is specified. They are frequently used in such higher-power applications as base stations, cellular antennas, RF and microwave components, SATcom, broadcast, PCS (personal communications services), surge protection, test and measurement instrumentation, microwave radio, WLAN, and radar. Featuring phosphor bronze/gold contacts, and manufactured of machined brass, the V-Bite Series' straight-through contact arrangement provides an extremely low reflection factor. Devices are provided with a Teflon dielectric to facilitate reflow soldering. A wide assortment of standard and custom mechanical configurations is offered.
