Featuring 1.15:1 VSWR through 6 GHz

Methuen, Ma–August 3, 2009–Electronic Assembly Manufacturing, Inc. (EAM), an RF/Microwave coaxial cable assembly supplier, has recently announced the availability of LMR® cable assemblies featuring low VSWR. Measured performance for a 0.600-in.-diameter, Type N assembly exhibits VSWR that remains below 1.15:1 for a frequency range through 6 GHz. EAM's LMR cable assemblies also offer high power handling capability through 6 GHz, and are available with outside diameters ranging from 0.100 through 0.600 in.

EAM’s LMR cable assemblies also exhibit low insertion loss, with typical performance of 11 dB per 100 ft. at 6 GHz for a cable assembly with 0.405 in. outer diameter. The 50 ohm LMR cable assemblies provide performance comparable to corrugated copper cables, while still offering the flexibility needed to simplify installation. They also exhibit lower loss and superior shielding effectiveness than similar size RG type braided cables.

EAM's LMR cable assemblies can be supplied with a variety of constructions, including polyethylene foam dielectric in a closed-cell design, interlayer aluminum composite tape bonded to the dielectric for high shielding (better than 90 dB), tinned copper outer braid, and a wide range of outer jacket types. Triple-shielded versions are also available. EAM's LMR cable assemblies can be terminated with a wide range of coaxial connectors, including Type N, TNC, UHF, and 7/16 connectors.
