Straight Receptacle Has Been Added to Our 12G-SDI Compatible Coaxial Connector BNC0 Series

Coaxial Connector BNC0 Series by JAE electronics

JAE has developed a straight receptacle to add to the variation of the BNC0 Series line-up. The BNC0 Series is a coaxial connector with superior mounting feature and high-frequency performance, compatible with 12G-SDI (SMPTE ST-2082 1), which is ideal for 4K uncompressed transmission. It will cater to a wide range of applications along with our existing right angle receptacles.

Recently there has been an increase in high-resolution 4K/8K video equipment used in various applications such as broadcasting equipment, network cameras and medical equipment. This has led to an increase in video data volume, which requires an increase in transmission speeds. To comply with this industry trend, there has been great demand for corresponding interfaces, including connectors. Conventionally, 4K uncompressed video transmission required the use of four 3G-SDI channels. However, there were industry concerns about the space and wires required for the interface. To alleviate these concerns, there is a growing demand for a 12G-SDI standard connector that is capable of transmitting uncompressed video through a single channel. Therefore, in 2018, we developed a BNC-coaxial connectors that complies with this standard and industry requirement and are gaining popularity. Now, in order to address the widening range of needs we have developed the straight receptacle to add to the line-up.

For this product, being straight type; allowing vertical cable exit from the board, while maintaining the features of the BNC0 Series in terms of high-frequency characteristics and superior mounting, it is especially suited for use in cameras, monitors, etc. where there are restrictions for directions of the cable exit and the lengths in depth.
In addition to the right angle type, the BNC0 Series in total can meet a wide range of needs.

We also provide our customers supporting data for circuit design to reduce high-frequency designing work time from the customer's prototype stage.

This product can be used for a wide variety of 4K/8K applications, such as broadcasting equipment, various types of audio/video equipment, measuring equipment, network cameras and medical equipment. JAE is continuously developing high-speed transmission products to satisfy the increasing requirements for high-definition imaging.
