CABLES / CONNECTORS APPLICATION NOTES

  • Introduction To Waveguide Connectors And Uni-Guide™

    The waveguide, along with the coaxial line, is one of the most important transmission media in any modern RF, microwave and millimeter-wave component, subassembly, and system. Due to its metal tubing configuration, the waveguide tends to be heavy and bulky, especially in low microwave frequencies. However, it is always a preferred transmission means when performance and high power are priorities. In millimeter-wave bands, it is especially true that the waveguide is widely used, and engineers will pay high attention to loss. This article will discuss the use of waveguide connectors, and present viable solutions, such as the Uni-Guide™.

  • The HUBER+SUHNER SUCOFLEX 500 Family Combines Low Loss With High Flexibility

    HUBER+SUHNER has launched a two-in-one solution, enabled by its patented rotary swaging technology. This white paper discusses the features and benefits of this technology to meet the highest demands in performance, reliability, and durability.

HUBER+SUHNER has developed the NEX10™miniature coaxial connector solution for smaller sized equipment in the telecom market. With a robust design for outside use, low PIM, and a small flange height of 12.7 mm, these connectors are ideal for a variety of applications including small cell, MIMO, DAS/in-building, antenna systems, radios, multicoaxial, and blind mate uses.

HUBER+SUHNER offers the MXPM multicoax solution supporting measurements up to 70 GHz (with an option to 90+ GHz).  The MXPM unit guarantees satisfactory performance and affordability with its high density pitch (2.54 mm, 0.1 inch) and a user friendly magnet mount connection.

The GORE® PHASEFLEX® Series offers the smallest, lightest, internally ruggedized microwave/RF test assemblies for high density interconnection in RF and uW modular applications as well as in high speed digital testing. These assemblies feature ON cable construction and provide consistent, repeatable measurements with electrical performance up to 18, 26.5, 40, or 50 GHz.

Fischer Connectors offers a large family of assembled solutions designed for a range of applications, including in extreme, medical, military, instrumentation, and fiber optic applications. Engineers are prepared to work closely with customers to find the ideal solution for the most demanding applications. Fischer Connector series include the Fischer Core Series, Fisher Ultimate™ Series, Fischer Fiberoptic series, and the Fischer Minimax™ Series.

With a life-time of more than 100,000 flex cycles, SUCOFLEX 550S 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.

Molex offers a new 2.2 – 5 RF Connector System and Cable Assemblies to deliver high frequency and low passive intermodulation (PIM) in a form factor that is 53% smaller than 4.3 – 10 connectors, making them ideal for compact mobile radio applications.

Fischer Connectors offers the new Fischer LP360™ connector as the first product of the Fischer Freedom™ Series. This connector facilitates integration, maximizes usability, and optimizes cable management for defense and security applications, even in the most demanding environments and conditions.

Fairview Microwave offers a new series of high-reliability, military-grade RF cable assemblies ideally used in defense and aerospace, transportation, and communications industries. These MIL-DTL-17 RF cable assemblies are designed for avionics, military electronics, satellite ground station, and autonomous vehicle applications.
