Bomar Type N Connectors Now in Shielded Version
Shielded RF connector.
Ledgewood, NJ — Bomar Interconnect Products, Inc. has expanded its proprietary line of V-Bite 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 incorporates a bottom shield to help eliminate inductance by shielding the open bottom of the connector. Because 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 18GHz. 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 excellent 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 50Ω, the new connector is well suited for joining coaxial cables in a broad range of high-power RF applications in which a reliable, durable, weatherproof, connector is specified. The connectors 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.

The new connector has phosphor bronze/gold contacts, and is manufactured of machined brass. Its 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.
