Metal-clad Fibers with Significant Weight Savings and EMI Performance

Micro-Coax, Pottstown, PA

Micro-Coax is now offering the ARACON“ family of metal-clad fibers that combines the conductivity of metal with the strength, light weight and flexibility of Kevlar® aramid fibers. The ARACON fibers are a superior lightweight alternative to traditional nickel-plated copper wire for EMI shielding. Replacing standard wire with ARACON offers significant weight savings without sacrificing EMI performance, as well as other benefits that copper and alloy wires cannot match.

Applications of CE Alloys in Defense, Aerospace, Telecom and Other Electronic Markets

The advantageous physical properties and manufacturing characteristics of Osprey Controlled Expansion (CE) alloys are currently being exploited in a variety of electronic applications. The ability to tailor the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) values of these alloys to ceramic circuit boards and components operating at high frequencies, combined with...

Cavity Techniques for Substrate Properties at Microwave/Millimeter-wave Bands

For quality control in the design of microwave and millimeter-wave circuitry and devices, it is important to have a good measure of the dielectric properties of the materials employed. The standards and methods that are often employed for this purpose ...
The setups presented are essentially of two types - thin dielectric sheet testers and z-axis testers. These are the tools that are employed to independently measure the components of the substrate dielectric constant. It is supposed that suitable propagation models may use this information to better predict propagation mode...

A Deterministic Method for Optimizing VSWR

By using in conjuction both frequency and time domain reflection measurements, it is possible to positively identify the specific circuit discontinuities that contribute to a given VSWR lobe. Corrective action can then be readily determined for optimum...
Improving VSWR is typically an iterative trial-and-error exercise when utilizing either frequency or time domain information. For example, while circuit modifications which decrease time domain reflectometry (TDR) "bumps" (discontinuities) are generally a good thing, decreasing a specific TDR bump does not necessarily improve VSWR within a frequency band of...

A High Frequency Broadband Filter

X2Y® technology is a new balanced component capable of high frequency performance across a broad frequency range. The component uses a standard ceramic capacitor with subtle, but important modifications to its structure. These structural changes create a circuit inside the capacitor that is capable of broadband electromagnetic interference (EMI)...
