PC Board Edge-Mounted BNC Connectors
Sunnyvale, CA — Regal Electronics has introduced a “Space-Saver” BNC connector that mounts on the edge of a
printed circuit board. In addition to a low profile advantage in applications with tight vertical constraints, the Regal’s new Space-Saver connector also reduces the twisting stress on
solder joints inherent in BNC connector mating. A “notch” in the new connector slips over the edge of a PC board prior to soldering, forming a tight mechanical fit that transfers the
majority of the rotational energy to the PC board instead of more vulnerable solder joints.
Another advantage of Regal’s Space-Saver BNC edge mounted design is that the center pin and connector body are
soldered directly to a PC board, minimizing the “antenna effect” caused by typical elevated mounting approaches and associated EMI/RFI problems at higher frequency ranges.
The new Regal “Space-Saver” BNC connector has a 75 ohm impedance and is rated to 4 Ghz. The new connectors are
available for prototype applications through Regal’s “Quick Ship” program: Orders in by 4:00PM are shipped out the same
day, as are the majority of Regal’s connector, speaker and related components.
