50 GHz Customizable Cable Assembly with a Lifespan of 100,000 Flex Cycles

HUBER+SUHNER has introduced a new customizable cable assembly which they claim has the longest life-time in the current market scenario. The 50 GHz SUCOFLEX 550S, is available in tailored lengths with immediate availability for stock assemblies and a quick manufacturing turnaround on customized configurations. With a life-time of more than 100,000 flex cycles, the assembly is the latest addition to the SUCOFLEX 500 family and provides a range of outstanding benefits including a high electrical performance with an enhanced mechanical design for durability.

The patented rotary swaging technology by HUBER+SUHNER gives the SUCOFLEX 550S cables the flexibility of a stranded inner conductor while maintaining the electrical properties, such as low attenuation factor, of a solid inner conductor. A longer service life provides industry professionals with an assembly that offers less testing downtime and is more cost efficient.

The assembly is designed to withstand abrasion, pressure and moisture, making it the go-to assembly for customers looking for a precise and long-lasting connectivity solution. It is perfectly suited for numerous test and measurement applications, including bench-top testing, high throughput RF production testing and for vector network analyzer measurements up to 50 GHz.

According to HUBER+SUHNER, while typical cables with solid wires break after a 10-20,000 flex cycles, the SUCOFLEX 550S has a life-time of more than 100,000 flex cycles, providing the best price-performance ratio in the market. In addition, it addresses the challenge customers have previously faced in struggling to find customized assemblies with short delivery times. The SUCOFLEX 500 family of microwave cable assemblies has all been tested on a high level and is successfully used for test and measurement and high-speed digital applications.
