Due to space constraints on a board I am designing, it is ideal to have the GNSS cable connecting vertically onto the top of the board. I haven't been able to find any edge-mounted connectors that go to a right angle vertically. Obviously edge-mount would be ideal electrically, but I am wondering if it will introduce too much loss too use a through hole SMA connector mounted vertically on top of the board - the 50ohm trace leading to the GNSS receiver would a top mounted grounded CPW line (signal trace on top with ground planes surrounding trace on top, and ground plane below the signal on the bottom side of board). I am concerned about 1. since it is TH, it will be soldered on the bottom, so there is a possibility of shorting the signal pin to the grounded housing of the connector; or possibly not getting a good enough connection to the top-side of the plated through-hole - where the trace is connected. 2. Loss due to the right angle bend where the signal pin meets the plated through-hole. 3. The leftover stub of signal pin sticking out of the bottom.
Here is the digikey link to a possible connector: https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/cinch-connectivity-solutions-johnson/142-0701-201/J500-ND/35274
This for GNSS applications, so it is all below 2GHz.
Thanks for the help!
