Samtec’s 75 Ohm High-Density BNC with Pick-and-Place Capability

Exclusive, Low-Profile, Balanced Right-Angle Design

New Albany, IN: Samtec now offers a 75 Ohm High-Density BNC solution (HDBNC Series) with an exclusive, balanced right-angle design ideal for high volume pick-and-place manufacturing (-BM1D & -BM2D die-cast options).

Designed primarily for use in advanced broadcast video equipment, Samtec HDBNC Series was tested to the latest SMPTE 2082 12G-SDI pass/fail specifications, with return loss measurements surpassing minimum requirements by a least -10 dB from 0 – 12 GHz. Results also show extremely low VSWR and insertion loss. Details, including complete Product Specifications and Characterization Reports, are available at

Product design was optimized and provides increased surface area to ensure proper vacuum sealing, while weight modifications ensure balance during pick-and-place onto the printed circuit board. Samtec’s HDBNC-BM1D & -BM2D die-cast products maintain a compact design for increased panel density with 8 mm (.315″) body height and 8.5 mm (.335″) width. Body height matches current screw-machined right-angle HDBNC Series designs for easier adaptability to existing applications.

What is “real-time control” and why do you need it?

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Real-time control is the ability of a closed-loop system to gather data, process that data and update the system within a defined time window. If the system misses that defined window, its stability, precision and efficiency will degrade. Diminished control can be detrimental to system performance; for example, not achieving the necessary speeds or even overheating. This article will explain the functional blocks of a real-time control system and provide an example of a robotics application.
