Bomar’s E-Snap Edgeboard RF Connectors Includes BNC Devices for Wireless Applications

Bomar Interconnect Products, Inc. has expanded its E-Snap Series of edgeboard RF connectors to include the vertical or horizontal mount BNC E-Snap. Developed for employment with PCMICA cards in wireless applications, Bomar’s 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 series’ unique 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, EOEMs are able to maximize throughput and cost efficiencies by eliminating the time and expense associated with applying an adhesive, whereas designers are afforded unsurpassed flexibility due to part’s capability to be mounted vertically or horizontally.

Bomar’s newest BNC coax connector is intended for use in a wide array of wireless applications and is ideally 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 boasts a straight-through contact design. To further ensure reliability, connectors feature gold-plated contacts. The 50-ohm series provides repeatable performance to 18 GHz standard, while high-frequency versions may be ordered with repeatable performance to 20 GHz. Parts are supplied in male or female versions, and offered in a range of standard- and custom-plating alternatives.

Distributor pricing for Bomar’s vertical or horizontal mount BNC E-Snap edgeboard RF connectors starts at $4.59 each in quantities of 1,000. Delivery is from stock to 10 weeks. Samples are available.
