IMS has been and continues to be an important part of W.L. Gore & Associates’ (Gore) global efforts to reach the microwave community with innovative and high performance products that meet today’s signal integrity challenges. Gore is proud to have supported IMS for over twenty-five years.

The symposium provides a great platform to network with current and potential customers, showcase and review the latest advances in the microwave industry, and introduce the symposium attendees to the vast product offerings and capabilities of Gore.

Gore first entered the microwave industry in 1976 with the introduction of its microwave cable assemblies. Gore’s cables revolutionized signal integrity in a more flexible package with the use of ePTFE dielectric, resulting in lower attenuation and greater phase stability with flexure.

These products helped to establish Gore as a performance-leading cable supplier for accurate and repeatable measurement of microwave systems and components.

Gore continues to lead the way in performance with stable and repeatable microwave cable assemblies through 110 GHz, along with its complete line of push-on RF connectors designed for test and measurement, defense and spaceflight applications.

One of the challenges that companies face is supporting customers globally. The world is shrinking, and regardless of time zones, customers expect and should receive prompt support.

Therefore, Gore participates in global trade shows, such as IMS; offers technical support locations around the world; and provides the use of digital technology such as its on-line web store ( and cable builder ( where customers can design their own cable assembly to fit their needs.
