Polygon press-fit pins from Cambion Electronics and Charcroft allow direct insertion into plated through-holes (PTH) without damage to the PCB. All pins are RoHS compliant, with Brass pins for low-current applications, or Tellurium Copper for higher currents, typically over 50A. The pins are reflow soldered as part of the standard surface-mount process. Options include vented shoulders for complete solder-fill of the PTH to eliminate voids and Gold plating for optimum reliability with lead-free processes.

Cambion Electronics Direct Insertion Pins | PDF

A new range of RF connectors from Cambion Electronics, designed principally to be used in conjunction with semi rigid cable, uses a solderless mating process, saving time and cutting costs. During assembly, prepared semi rigid cable is plugged into the RF connector and an integral locking cap is screwed down, closing the teeth of an inner insert, providing a strain-relieved, solderless joint.More, no special tooling is required to effect a quick, pluggable termination. These low insertion force RF connectors are available in standard SMA, SMB, MMCX and N footprints. Alternatively, Cambion Electronics has invested in state of the art fabrication tooling, so RF connectors and converters can be customised to suit a specific application.
