New Flexible Coaxial Cable Assemblies with Excellent Phase Performance

Smiths Interconnect has introduced a new series of flexible coaxial cable assemblies, the Lab-Flex T. The T cable assemblies are mechanically robust and specifically designed to minimize phase change when subjected to a wide range of operational temperatures. This makes them an ideal choice for system applications under extreme temperature and environmental conditions such as Radar, Test & Measurement, and Space applications.

The Lab-Flex T Series currently consists of the 065T, 100T, and 160T cable models, which cover key performance characteristics at various frequency bands from DC to 50 GHz. They are available in standard mechanical lengths or phase-matched electrical lengths as needed. All products have gone through extensive qualification testing in order to meet today’s rigorous requirements per customer application and industry standard.

The cable assemblies allow for minimum phase change while maintaining excellent return loss. Their special foam dielectric material provides a much lower attenuation than solid PTFE. Precision Connector interfaces meet MIL-STD-348 requirements and are designed for maximum frequency capability.
