Hi-rel, temperature conditioned RF cable assemblies

Fairview Microwave, a provider of on-demand RF, microwave and millimeter wave components, has released a series of high-reliability, temperature conditioned RF cable assemblies that are intended for military electronics, avionics, SATCOM, ECM, IFF and other mission critical applications.

These high reliability cables cover operating frequencies to 18 GHz and deliver VSWR as low as 1.35:1. This product line is made up of 128 configurations built from three different types of cable, totalling more than 1,400 parts all available with same-day shipping.

These cable assemblies are constructed using thermally pre-conditioned, triple-shielded coaxial cable and captivated stainless steel connectors, which are then assembled using J-STD soldering processes and WHMA-A-620 workmanship criteria.

The combination of quality materials, processes and acceptance testing combines to make a highly reliable cable assembly, suitable for applications where the cost of failure is high and performance over time is paramount.

These commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) cables are 100% tested and come complete with material lot traceability and test reporting.
