Pin Bridge for Standard Housing with Two 45 deg Angle
The XM-PB2-ALAR is an innovative solderless RF grounding and shielding device to optimize the transition from an X-MWblock RF Launch to a Pin coming thru a housing wall.
The XM-PB2-ALAR has an Angle on both ends to fit with other Anchors or another PinBridges for an X-MWblock with three launches at Right Angles to each other.
The Pin Bridge achieves two important goals:
1) It bridges the ground from the top side coplanar launch to the housing wall.
2) The grounded tunnel over the RF Pin extending thru the wall over the board effectively controls the fringing fields caused by the launch discontinuity.
