Bomar Intros 8GHz PCB Connectors
8GHz Type F connector.
Ledgewood, NJ, — Bomar Interconnect Products, Inc. has introduced the female Type BMR® connector, the first member of the company's new 8GHz BMR Series of PC board connectors for wideband HDTV transmission. The result of a three-year design initiative, the BMR Series incorporates proprietary connector technology to meet the signal quality requirements of large-scale satellite TV applications, and has no equivalent in today's connector market.

BMR connectors are RF engineers' interface solution for Dish Network and Direct TV applications in which signals are deployed throughout such facilities as office complexes, hotels, hospitals, colleges, and universities.

Traditional 3GHz Type F connectors are adequate for many HDTV applications, but cannot accommodate the extreme bandwidth required when satellite signals are to be split. BMR connectors, when employed in RF circuits designed for them, virtually ensure the integrity of split signals due to their proprietary engineering. The new 75Ω interfaces are rated to 8GHz (test well to 10GHz), and engineered to only mate with 8GHz parts. They are designed to mount to the underside of the PC board to support optimal grounding and inductance, and have an open-top design and contact pin placement to enable low overall capacitance.

Parts are manufactured of precision-machined brass with gold-plated contacts to support low return loss, and use insulator material of high-density TFE to maintain a perfect dielectric constant.
