Richardson Electronics Adds Cable Assemblies from Junkosha to its Microwave Product Portfolio

Richardson Electronics, Ltd. has announced the availability of Junkosha’s MWX004 interconnect cables. Cables in the MWX004 series are available with 1.0mm or 0.8mm connectors and include Junkosha’s patented “safety lock” feature, which prevents bending and breakage of the center pin. Since the maximum frequency for 5G is currently 71 GHz, this cable is ideal since it allows the evaluation of second harmonic spurs. 

Richardson Electronics provides solutions and adds value through design-in support, systems integration, prototype design and manufacturing, testing, logistics, and aftermarket technical service and repair on a global basis. These cables are available from Richardson Electronics, Ltd. in 2-3 weeks in custom lengths.

With over 60 years of industry-leading experience in the RF market, Junkosha’s next generation of cables and interconnects for the 5G industry stand up to the rigors of higher frequencies while operating efficiently in environments with high flexure and temperature change. Greg Peloquin, Executive Vice President of Richardson Electronics’ Power & Microwave Technologies group said that Junkosha’s new products fit perfectly into their Microwave portfolio and their growth strategy. They are well-positioned for continued growth and will continue to provide their customers with cutting-edge technology and products.
