EAM's hand-formable (comparable to Conformable®) cable assemblies provide the performance of semi-rigid cable assemblies past 20 GHz, but can be easily bent into a desired shape without tools. Once bent, they will retain that form with minimal memory effects.
EAM's hand-formable cable assemblies provide greater ease of use than factory formed semi-rigid cable assemblies, with little or no sacrifice in electrical performance compared to a formed semi-rigid cable assembly of the same size. These hand-formable cable assemblies minimize signal losses by means of a PTFE dielectric. They incorporate a copper-tin composite outer conductor to achieve excellent shielding effectiveness of more than 100 dB. The typical insertion loss for a 0.141-in. diameter cable hand-formable assembly is about 0.7 dB/ft. at 20 GHz., while the VSWR for that same cable assembly remains low through 18 GHz.
EAM's hand-formable cable assemblies are available in a wide range of standard and custom lengths with the same connector choices as for semi-rigid cable assemblies, including anti-torque connectors, SMA, 7/16, BNC, N, and TNC connectors.
