New Amphenol RF Connectors and Cable Assemblies Support 12 Gpbs Data Rates

Amphenol RF has introduced a comprehensive line of connectors and cable assemblies that can support data rates up to 12 Gbps. These products are aimed to support the rapidly growing need for faster processing and more space-conscious broadcast solutions. These connectors provide 4K and Ultra-HD quality signals in miniature and high-density sub-miniature package sizes, with the familiar feel of the BNC mating system.

The extended line of PCB Jacks include straight, right-angle and edge-mount configurations. These 75 ohm 12G-SDI connectors are designed to perform at frequencies up to 18 GHz with the familiar BNC bayonet coupling mechanism, a feature popular with engineers and application designers. This line also includes the introduction of a straight oriented Jack compatible with the Belden 4855R cable.

The new BNC and HD-BNC straight crimp cable plugs are designed to interact with a variety of Belden cables. Connector housings are made from machined brass, with beryllium copper outer contacts for secure mating. Plug housings and ferrules are nickel plated for durability, and jack bodies are plated tin for solderability. Both have outer and center contacts plated gold for maximum electrical performance.

Cable assemblies are available in BNC to BNC, HD-BNC to HD-BNC and HD-BNC to BNC straight plug configurations, with options for both Belden 4855R and 4794R cables. These 12G products have a variety of applications including remote viewing, digital signage and mobile broadcasting.
