If this were a typical April, and if you are in the broadcast industry, chances are you would be at the NAB Show in Las Vegas. By day you would be checking out the latest broadcast products, solutions, equipment and technology. And by night, well, I don’t even want to think about what you might be doing at night, so I’ll stick to the daytime.
Unfortunately this is not a typical April. In fact, it’s about the most atypical April I’ve ever seen. But since you can’t go to the NAB Show in Vegas, we will bring it to you.
I’ll get straight to-the-point: there are two reasons why you should look at Samtec for 12G-SDI solutions:
Largest Variety Of 12G-SDI Solutions
First, Samtec offers the largest variety of 12G-SDI solutions on the market. The products come in a variety of styles and sizes, including BNC, HD-BNC™, and DIN 1.0/2.3 interconnects.
For example, last year we introduced our new BNC7T -BM1D product. Samtec modified the weight of this 75 Ω, low-profile, right-angle, mixed technology bulkhead jack BNC connector to keep it balanced during automated placement, so it does not required a fixture. The top surface area was also increased for a machine vacuum seal, making the use of industry standard pick-and-place machines possible.
Launch Optimization Service and Support
Second, Samtec offers unmatched service in PCB launch optimization. Custom launch design services assure the best possible performance of our RF PCB connectors when terminated to our customers’ specific PCB stack and construction. The specific PCB stack dimensions and all materials utilized in the construction of the PCB, including all prepreg and core materials used, the specific weave types of each, and any solder masks, etc., are needed in order to perform these services.
The video above is an example of our launch optimizations. A launch optimized by our RF/SI experts a versus non-optimized launch is clearly compared from 2:30 – 3:00 time code. Throughout the video you will see that Samtec 12G-SDI RF connectors easily pass SMPTE ST-2082-1 requirements.
The video above shows how Samtec’s new 75 Ω BNC enables pick-and-place equipment to be used in the manufacturing process, saving time during board assembly. The BNC7T-BM Series is an exclusive Samtec design, created by our RF/SI modeling experts. It features increased surface area for machine vacuum sealing, weight modifications for balance during placement, all while still offering superior 12G-SDI performance.
Check out the video above to learn more about our 12G-SDI products. They meet the rigid return loss requirements of 12 GHz, and they include BNC, HD-BNC™, DIN 1.0/2.3, and cable assemblies.
We have prepared a website that shows all of the 75Ω, 12G-SDI products, support, and live demonstrations that would have been at our booth. Here’s a link to the Samtec NAB Show Virtual booth.
