Cambridge, UK, 17 January 2018 – Cambridge Electronic Industries, specialist designer and manufacturer of professional quality coaxial connectors and cable assemblies for the broadcast and vision markets, announces the first product of a brand new SMT design – a 12GHz right angled BNC connector that can be placed directly onto a PCB in rapid assembly and volume production.
As bandwidths increase to carry 4K, Quad HD and Ultra HD video, so does the demand for coaxial connectors that are optimised to deliver a 12GHz channel in one single connection. These latest coaxial connectors are designed with great precision and low loss, for broadcast and high speed video applications where there is a very high throughput of data.
Cambridge Electronic Industries’ new BNC connector, part no C-SX-174, is a right angled surface mount connector, patent pending, suitable for the automated placement techniques used in high volume manufacturing. Its design has evolved from the company’s popular 12G-SDI connector C-SX-165, which requires a more traditional manufacturing process.
The company’s Technical Director, Peter Fayers, explains that:
“The design of the C-SX-174 connectors allows them to be placed as close as possible to, and in the same place as the EQ/driver chip, which helps to prevent signal loss from the contacts in the bottom layers of the board. The connector can be positioned and inserted directly onto the board and then locked to keep it in place, which makes it perfect for rapid assembly.”
Cambridge Electronic Industries is an established supplier to the broadcast sector globally, providing cables and cable assemblies to major manufacturers of professional broadcast and machine vision equipment.
The company also manufactures 12G-SDI connectors and assemblies for Belden 4855R, Belden 4505R, Belden 4731R, Belden 4794R, Belden 4694R HDTV video cables, and Igus CF Koax1 flexible cables. See Cambridge Electronics Industries at ISE stand 15-G228 or please visit here.
