Bomar Intros E-Snap Edgeboard RF Connectors
Edgecard snap-on BNC connectors.
Ledgewood, NJ — Bomar Interconnect Products, Inc. has expanded its proprietary E-Snap Series of edgeboard RF connectors to include the vertical or horizontal mount BNC E-Snap. Developed for use with PCMICA cards in wireless applications, the BNC E-Snap connectors are the latest addition to the 50-ohm E-Snap Series, which is comprised of SMA, SMB, SMC, MCX and low-profile MCX LP edgeboard RF connectors.

The miniature, lightweight connectors' unusual construction notably promotes exceptional board retention and RF performance without the use of adhesives.

Parts are engineered with small protrusions within their slots to allow devices to "snap" firmly into solder-pasted holes as they are slid onto the PC board. This ability to lock securely in place for re-flow soldering significantly minimizes strain on the solder joint to provide the industry's most durable mount to the PC board. In specifying the new BNC E-Snap, designers are able to maximize throughput and cost efficiencies by eliminating the time and expense associated with applying an adhesive, while being afforded excellent flexibility because of the part's ability to be mounted vertically or horizontally.

This newest BNC coax connector is intended for use in a wide variety of wireless applications. It is well suited for dense packaging arrangements where mechanical strength, high durability, high reliability and low VSWR are required. Devices accommodate a large variety of RG and industry standard cables.

The E-Snap Series meets or exceeds all industry mechanical, electrical and environmental standards, and provides a straight-through contact design. To further ensure the utmost in reliability, connectors have gold-plated contacts.

The 50Ω series provides repeatable performance to 18GHz standard, while high-frequency versions may be ordered with repeatable performance to 20GHz. Parts are supplied in male or female versions, and offered in a range of standard- and custom-plating alternatives.
