Bel Magnetic Solutions Introduces a Series of Press-Fit ICMs

Nov. 11, 2019

Bel Magnetic Solutions, a Bel group company and global leader in design and manufacturing of MagJack Integrated Connector Modules (ICM), introduces single and dual port 1GBaseT Press-Fit ICMs. These Press-Fit ICMs are designed for applications and processing scenarios that require a connector that can be pressed onto the PCBA instead of traditional soldering techniques. This series can also be used on PCBA’s thicker than .150in (3.81mm) along with traditional board thicknesses.

The growing requirement for press-fit type ICMs is driven by the increased use of non-traditional applications in products that connect to the internet. There are also a growing number of applications where the PCBA layer count has increased, resulting in thick boards where normal solder lengths cannot be used. Bel Magnetic Solutions’ Press-Fit ICMs are compatible with all major Ethernet PHYs on the market and suitable for applications including single board computers, network adaptor cards and non-traditional equipment where an Ethernet port is needed.
