Bomar Intros First Multi-Port MMCX Interconnects
Multi-port MMCX interconnects.
Ledgewood, NJ — Bomar Interconnect Products, Inc. has released its A-lign Series of multi-port MMCX antenna RF connectors. Initially consisting of 3- and 6-port parts, the proprietary A-lign Series is engineered to support the wireless sector's demand for increasingly smaller consumer, industrial and commercial products.

Designed for high-density, cable-to-board applications, the 5.00mm (0.197-in.) centerline parts ensure the integrity of coaxial cable connections, especially where PCBs are stacked. Moreover, their use reduces manufacturers' BOM while optimizing close proximity alignment to help speed products' time-to-market. The interconnects meet or exceed all industry mechanical, electrical, and environmental standards.

These PCB mount coaxial interconnects are suitable for the broadest range of compact, high-density wireless applications in which package size and high performance are critical factors. They are most frequently specified in cellular base stations, test and measurement equipment, and medical equipment. Both male and female devices are provided with snap-together coupling to facilitate low RF leakage and ease of assembly. Female parts with the E-Snap PC mounting technology are optionally available. These connectors do not require an adhesive before reflow soldering as they snap securely into previously solder-pasted holes for reflow.

The devices have a 50Ω impedance and repeatable performance to 6GHz. A-Lign interconnects are manufactured of precision-machined brass with gold bodies to support an extremely low reflection factor with a VSWR of 1.30. Female interconnects are provided with gold-plated, beryllium/copper contacts. All parts are supplied with a Teflon dielectric to facilitate a low dielectric constant and for reflow soldering. Custom centerline dimensions are also available.
