Junkosha to Showcase Wide Range of 5G/6G-enabled mmWave Cables at DesignCon 2023

Junkosha will showcase its wide range of cabling solutions at DesignCon 2023, America’s largest chip, board, and systems event. Junkosha will showcase its wide range of cabling solutions, including the MWX001, MWX161, MWX6 Series, and MWX2 Series, all designed to meet the demands of a 5G and 6G digital future. The quest for ever-faster data transfer speeds has driven the newest generation of data center systems to deploy optical fiber between components. The requirement for ultra-high-performance cables to test and monitor the integrity of digital signals has become equally critical. Junkosha is leveraging its pedigree in analog microwave and mmWave transmission performance and adapting it to the digital world.

For example, cabling solutions like Junkosha’s MWX001 cable assembly feature the lowest insertion loss among any cables for test measurement applications that demand signal stability while providing the physical cable flexibility required for test set-ups (according to Junkosha). As a result, the interconnect has become a premium choice for testing components within optical fiber communications systems. Cable insertion loss is minimized due to its cable structure, which is optimized for measurement up to 110 GHz with 1 ps skew matching. The combination of the lowest loss and a 1 psec precision skew match helps accurately monitor “eye diagrams." MWX001 also exhibits excellent phase stability, leading to high-quality signal transmission complete with predictable skew performance, a prerequisite for signal integrity applications.

In another example, Junkosha’s MWX6 Series provides highly precise skew matching with less than 1 psec skew between pairs for the measurement of digital transmissions. This cable has low insertion loss, making it appropriate for measuring high-precision differential transmission signals. Four types of cables are available with a variety of frequencies, from 26.5 GHz to 67 GHz.

Masaru Omoto, Product Manager for Junkosha, explains: “At Junkosha, we are constantly innovating new precision-engineered cabling solutions for an increasingly digital world." "Our latest products, such as our MWX161 cable, feature characteristics, such as the ability to consistently test signal integrity without impacting performance, that are critical for the data transmission of the future and will be needed to handle the increasingly demanding end uses.”

DesignCon is the place for chip, board, and systems design engineers to source, network, and stay ahead of industry change. The event provides visitors with an opportunity to review and discuss next-generation technology developments with relevant and interested parties, such as engineers, professionals, and leading industry figureheads. It also offers a forum to discover breakthrough innovations, take part in networking events, and attend educational sessions. The event is being held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in California, USA, from January 31st to February 2nd.
