This 40 GHz series cable assembly consists of 1501 series cable (a low loss and phase stable cable) and a 2.92 mm straight male connector on both ends. It meets all the material requirements outlined in the MIL-C-17 specification, utilizing silver plated copper conductor with a very low loss expanded PTFE dielectric. The shield consists of two conductive layers: the first layer is a silver-plated copper flat wire, applied in such manner that it yields low contact resistance, resulting in low insertion loss. The second layer is a silver-plated copper braided shield that contributes to excellent RF leakage characteristics, specified at greater than -100 dB to 18 GHz. The standard outside jacket is a tough, resin melt, extruded FEP.
This assembly has low return loss up to 40 GHz and make a great and cost-effective test cable. This series cable pair is also available in custom lengths. Please use the custom cable assembly page to specify your length requirement.
