Maury Microwave’s Stability™ series RF/microwave cable assemblies are designed specifically for phase- and amplitude-stable applications, offering excellent measurement repeatability even after cable flexure. With a ruggedized, durable construction, Stability results in a reduced total cost-of-test. Stability’s light weight, superior flexibility and small form factor make it ideal for daily use with VNAs, test instruments, bench-top testing, probe station integrations and ATE systems.

Stability low-profile cable assemblies are designed for high-density applications such as switch matrices and PXI/PXIe/AXIe cards, as well as wafer probe applications where traditional cable assemblies might cause interference due to cable and connector size. Stability low-profile cable assemblies offer the same electrical performance as Stability RF/microwave cable assemblies in a configuration that is 44 percent smaller and 66 percent lighter, and are available with 3.5 and
2.92 mm connectors.

For thermal vacuum applications, Stability TVAC cable assemblies have been designed for measurements in a thermal vacuum environment for space product testing. Stability TVAC cable assemblies offer the same electrical and mechanical performance as Stability RF/microwave cable assemblies with specialized vented 2.92 mm connectors that meet low outgassing requirements of ESA-PSS-01-702 with a TML < 1 percent and CVCM < 0.1 percent.

Stability Swept 90° cable assemblies are designed for applications requiring a fixed and stable bend where traditional cable assemblies may be inconvenient. With a bend radius of 1.43" and a cable-to-connector length of 3.3", Stability Swept 90° cable assemblies retain the electrical and mechanical specifications of the traditional assembly while removing stresses related to hand-formed bends.
