Ruggedized Cable Line

HASCO’s new ruggedized cable line includes high-quality, low loss, phase-stable cable assemblies constructed with robust connectors, internally ruggedized with multi-layer copper spiral and braided armor, offering excellent phase and amplitude stability with flexure. The ruggedized series of armored cables is RoHS compliant and available in male-to-male and male-to-female configurations, with a range of connectors and frequencies: SMA, 2.92 mm, 2.4 mm and 1.85 mm from 26.5 GHz up to 67 GHz.


RF Cable Assembly

The C447-ZZZ-101G from IntelliConnect, a Trexon company, is a 24-way high density SMPM plug to SMPM jack cable assembly that operates from DC to 40 GHz. This interconnect solution consists of 24 0.047-in. semi-rigid cables between each SMPM plug to SMPM jack connector. The connectors have a durability of more than 100 cycles and meet the MIL-STD-348 and MIL-PRF-39012 standards.


SP4T TTL Switch Routes 0.1 to 18.0 GHz

Mini-Circuits’ model TTL-1SP4T-183 is a single-pole, four-throw (SP4T) switch with low loss from 100 MHz to 18 GHz. With female SMA connectors on all RF ports, the absorptive switch exhibits typical insertion loss of 2.5 dB to 10 GHz and 4.0 dB or less to 18 GHz. Typical isolation between ports is at least 65 dB to 10 GHz and 60 dB to 18 GHz. TTL control simplifies integration into radios, radar and test systems while enabling 100 ns switching time.

Coaxial Amplifier Gains 0.5 to 18.0 GHz

Mini-Circuits’ model ZX60-R5183P+ is a coaxial amplifier with 3 dB positive gain slope from 0.5 to 18.0 GHz. Typical gain is 6.5 dB from 0.5 to 5.0 GHz, increasing to 9.5 dB from 15.0 to 18.0 GHz. Noise figure drops with frequency, typically 6.1 dB from 0.5 to 5.0 GHz and 4.5 dB from 1.50 to 18.0 GHz. The RoHS-compliant amplifier, with female SMA connectors, provides at least +10.2 dBm typical output power at 1 dB compression across the full bandwidth.

Coaxial Diplexer Screens DC to 40 GHz

Mini-Circuits’ model ZDSS-K10G13G+ is a suspended-substrate-strip line coaxial diplexer for isolating signals within DC to 40 GHz. Equipped with 2.92 mm connectors, it is ideal for ECM and ELINT systems. Insertion loss is typically 1.0 dB across the lowpass passband of DC to 10.5 GHz and typically 1.5 dB for the 13.5 to 20.0 GHz highpass passband. Stopband rejection to 40 GHz is as much as 90 dB in the highpass channel and as much as 70 dB to 40 GHz in the lowpass channel.


Vector Network Analyzer

The Rohde & Schwarz vector network analyzer series provides precise, fast and versatile solutions for RF and microwave measurements. With a frequency range up to 1.1 THz and multiport options up to 48 ports, these high performance analyzers are ideal for analyzing passive and active components like filters, amplifiers, mixers and multiport modules. Offering excellent RF characteristics and a range of analysis functions, Rohde & Schwarz network analyzers empower users to assess crucial parameters efficiently.

Conductive Fiber Braiding Material

Liberator®conductive fiber braiding material provides cable manufacturers with the lightest-weight alternative to traditional silver-plated copper braiding available today. Cables using Liberator® weigh 30 percent less on average. The fiber works with existing braiding equipment and is provided on spools or cores. Liberator® can be soldered or crimped and has proven shielding effectiveness equal to or better than traditional copper braiding. Superior flex-cycle durability over 1,000x that of equivalent size copper provides an added benefit for repetitive bend applications.
