Trompeter announced the introduction of a new 75 ohm edge-mount circuit board BNC connector, the UCBJE20. The unique design of this gold plated connector features a center pin in-line with the plane of the board for superior signal performance (-23 dB return loss at 3 GHz). The pcb end of the UCBJE20 has a special drainage slot for fluid clean processing after soldering. The side launch design approach of this new product allows a significantly lower profile than standard right angle jacks for reduced board space requirements. Designed for applications such as telco DS3 and T3, in-station broadcast and headends, this product is currently available in 0.031 thickness and will be available in a variety of other pcb thickness.
