TE Connectivity Ltd. , a world leader in connectivity and sensors, announced its Raychem matched impedance splices for aerospace applications. Designed to comply with MIL-PRF-32517 standard, the splices solve the problem of costly removal and replacement of damaged coaxial cable by allowing fast, easy in situ repairs that maintain characteristic impedance and other electrical properties of the system.
San-tron Inc., a manufacturer of RF coaxial connectors and cable assemblies, will be discussing a new quick turn, custom cable assembly service at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS2016) in San Francisco, Calif., May 24-26 in Booth #1039. Advanced, custom-built assemblies will be built to spec to meet a variety of application requirements for premium signal performance and shock, vibration, and thermal conditions.
W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) has continuously expanded the company’s microwave/RF solutions at higher frequencies by designing cable assemblies that are reliable and will perform over time, and Gore is now addressing industry requirements for enhanced performance in the 60 to 70 GHz range.
W. L. Gore & Associates introduced an online tool designed to complement the existing GORE™ Microwave/RF Assembly Builder. The new GORE™ Microwave/RF Assembly Calculator is used to calculate insertion loss, VSWR and other parameters of GORE® Microwave/RF Assemblies for different cable types. The calculator is particularly useful when the initial cable type is unknown and needs to be specified independent of the connector.
Dynawave, a leading developer of high-performance RF/microwave coaxial connectors, cables, and cable assemblies, is shortening the wait for standard and custom length coaxial cable assemblies through its Dynawave Express accelerated delivery program.
Pasternack, a leading provider of in-stock and ready to ship RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has just released an improved version of their popular online tool called The Cable Creator™. This new iteration allows the user to not only design and customize special cable configurations online in a few clicks, but also purchase their designs without the need to wait for a quote from the company’s sales team.
Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), a global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, has enhanced its portfolio of passive RF components with an entire suite of new products – 90 in all – to provide a full range of solutions for all wireless in-building commercial and mission-critical communications requirements. New products complement RFS’ comprehensive line of low loss RF feeder cables and jumpersfor DAS and include passive DAS components such as couplers, power splitters, tappers and hybrid combiners.
Amphenol RF is pleased to introduce anti-torque stainless steel connectors and cable assemblies to their expanding SMA product family. The new SMA connectors feature anti-torque bodies, which allow the user to hold the body with one wrench while simultaneously torqueing down the coupling nut to its mating connector with another. This helps to keep the entire assembly from twisting, thereby preventing damage to both the cable and the connector during installation.
Bird Technologies, a leading provider of RF components, subsystems, test equipment, and services, introduced the SiteHawk SK-200-TC hand-held antenna and cable analyzer that operates from 300 kHz to 200 MHz. The instrument makes it simple to detect problems in coaxial transmission lines and antenna systems and pinpoint their source using distance-to-fault measurements.
