At the first face-to-face International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in two years, Junkosha has launched a new metrology grade Microwave/mmWave VNA Test Cable Assembly. This new assembly is being showcased alongside the company’s innovative service options including the quickest lead times, ‘try before you buy’ and a cable health check program. Junkosha is using this event to present its personalized approach to doing business alongside an explanation of how its new brand promise elevates the company above its key competitors.
Accuracy is crucial in any test setting, but particularly so for metrology grade cabling, which offers ultimate precision and therefore demands the highest reliability for testing and calibration purposes. Utilizing Junkosha’s precision engineered-PTFE tape wrapping technology, the new cable exhibits excellent phase (within ± 4.5° at 50 GHz) and amplitude (within ± 0.08 dB at 50 GHz) stability in flexure alongside strong phase stability in temperature. The cable is flexible and can maintain this level of performance when bent 180° on a 2.25” radius mandrel, with no spring back. Able to reach 50 GHz and available with 2.4 mm connectors, the assembly also displays impressive performance durability – 50,000 tick tock cycles is typical. The ruggedized port side NMD connector is also available to ensure reliable connections to the Vector Network Analyser (VNA).
“At Junkosha, we are constantly innovating new precision engineered cabling solutions, not only for what is fast becoming a 5G enabled world, but also for specialised industries such as test and measurement,” explains Masaru Omoto, Product Manager for Junkosha. “Overall, the key application area for our new metrology grade Microwave/mmWave VNA test cable assembly is measuring the device under test (DUT) when designing a high frequency component from scratch. In addition, our metrology grade cable will also be used for coaxial cable development, as well as cable products. Overall, target customers for this new solution include top-level national institutes, calibration laboratories and service providers where repeatability is key.”
“Alongside this latest new product, we are taking the opportunity at IMS to explain our new brand initiatives by elevating our wide range of services that we have always offered in a bid to consistently meet customers’ unmet needs,” continues Omoto. “Offering services such as the quickest lead times and ‘try before you buy’, our continual goal is to be customers’ number one partner by not only listening to their requirements but also providing them with no surprises – in other words being easy to do business with.”
The IEEE MTT International Microwave Symposium (IMS) is the premier annual international meeting for technologists involved in all aspects of microwave theory and practice. This year the in-person event is smaller and consists of over 200 exhibiting companies that represent state-of-the-art technologies including materials, devices, components, and subsystems, as well as design and simulation software and test and measurement equipment. The in-person symposium is being held between June 7th and 10th in Atlanta, Georgia, with the virtual event to follow from June 20th to 25th.
