HIROSE ELECTRIC CO., LTD.
75Ω coaxial connector optimal for 4K/8K high-definition image transmission

Complies with 12G-SDI standards, which enablelong-distance transmission of 4K-equivalent signals over a single coaxial cable

Optimal for 4K (12G-SDI) device connection

By applying design, analysis, and manufacturing technologies such as millimeter-wave connectors, high-speed multi-position connectors, etc., we have greatly revised the BNC75, H.FL75 series design and manufacturing methods for 4K (12 Gbps) equivalent high-speed signals, to achieve 12G-SDI high-speed signals.

Now 4K (12 Gbps) equivalent signals can be transferred
with a single coaxial cable.

Cooperating with chip, board, and cable manufacturers has enabled us to develop a connector that is optimal for 12G-SDI transmission channels. We will provide information on demand required for handling high-speed transmission connectors (10 GHz or more) such as ideal board layout, analysis data, mounting methods, and cable assembly methods.

Now 4K (12 Gbps) equivalent signals can be transferred with a single coaxial cable.

Features of BNC75 series 12G-SDI compatible Plug

Contact structure provides stable characteristics,
even for high-frequency bands

Design considers higher harmonics to achieve low reflection that is suitable for 12G-SDI transmission. It also inhibits rattling between plug and receptacle after mating, and by changing from conventional surface contact to a multi-point contact structure, high-frequency band fluctuations which often occur at 3 GHz or higher are significantly reduced.

Compatibility with a variety of cables

Each type of cable can be selected depending on use, such as the thick 5.5 C-UHD fastening cable for approx. 80 to 100 m transmission for connection between stations, outside broadcast vans, etc. or the 3.3 C-FW for approx. 30 m transmission, great for optimal resistance to bending in the studio or at the filming location.

Features of BNC75 Series 12G-SDI-compatible Receptacles

Internal structure, mounting design,
and board pattern were changed to support 12G-SDI

Characteristics enabling 12G-SDI transmission at high frequencies were considered, with a tapered structure used for right angle types, and SMT adopted for center conductor connection (DIP type is also available.) The internal structure was optimized. In addition, to prevent an uneven amount of solder while mounting, nickel barrier processing is used for the right-angle type center conductor.

High impedance matching
Nickel barrier suppresses inconsistencies in solder

Compact, lightweight

Usage with an outside broadcast van, etc. was considered to meet a minimal pitch between connectors of 16 mm, and the right angle type's weight was scaled down to 5.3 g. Size will differ depending on the connector, so please check the variation table and 2D, 3D drawings for details.

Features of D.FL75 series
12G-SDI compatible internal RF wiring connection

Improved flexibility of set design by cable connection

Since cable connection can be done with thin-wire coaxial cable from the back of the IF’s BNC, the amount of space available for board positioning, etc. within the casing is improved. This is optimal for broadcasting cameras, etc.

Flexible board layout design is possible

Using a multi-level connection type on the top level allows you to reduce the number of boards. Also, a smaller board-occupied area than with BNC offers board layout flexibility.

Compact, space-saving properties

Receptacle is an SMT (reflow) mount. Because of this, mounting work is significantly reduced compared to flow/manually-attached connectors. A mounting area of 4 mm x 4 mm saves space. When mating the connector, height from the board is 2.7 mm, so the space in height direction is saved as well.

Compact, space-saving properties

Substantial high-frequency performance for 12G-SDI signal transmission

Return loss is 20 dB (for 12 GHz), which is the same level as with direct board-mounted BNC. Also, routing with coaxial cable in low-loss Teflon dielectric casing can reduce insertion loss more than FR4 board transmission, making it ideal for multiple uses such as connecting smartphone antennas, etc.
