Fairview Microwave has introduced a new line of 1mm flexible cables operating up to 110GHz. These cables are designed to provide precision results for VNA testing, automotive radar testing, semiconductor probe testing and defence radar testing. These VNA cables are perfect for use in radar, test bench, millimeter wave radio and microwave radio applications.
The company’s new flexible, high-performance VNA test cables operate at up to 110GHz and deliver precise test results using coaxial cable and 1mm stainless steel connector interfaces. The coax cable is covered by a non-conductive Nomex, light-duty armored outer sleeve that protects the small, 0.27” diameter VNA cable and improves durability during flexure. These VNA cables feature 50ohm impedance, excellent phase/amplitude stability under flexure and a maximum VSWR of 1.5:1.
These new flexible test cables operate over a wide temperature range from -65C to +125C. Additionally, these vector network analyzer cables are RoHS and REACH compliant, and the assemblies are fully tested and are shipped with serialized test data. These new VNA cables are available in standard 6” and 12” lengths with male-to-male or male-to-female configurations off-the-shelf.
“We are very excited to introduce these new VNA test cables to our expanding line of test and measurement products. With the continued growth of millimeter wave applications, engineers can now order these VNA cables for same day shipping to meet their urgent needs,” said Randy Leenerts, senior RF engineer at Fairview Microwave.
