Ultra-low-loss flexible microwave coaxial cable

Molex : 03 August, 2013  (New Product)
Molex has launched a line microwave cable assemblies that utilises its Temp-Flex air-dielectric ultra-low-loss flexible microwave coaxial cables, featuring a patented dual monofilament air-enhanced design and a helically wrapped shield. The Temp-Flex coaxial cables achieve 85 to 88% velocity of propagation (VOP) for increased signal speed.
Ultra-low-loss flexible microwave coaxial cable

Molex developed Temp-Flex air-dielectric ultra-low-loss flexible microwave coaxial cables for device manufacturers specifying microwave coaxial cables in high frequency aerospace, defence and commercial applications, including radar, military vehicles, satellites, space, missile, radio frequency (RF) ablation, test and measurement equipment.

Molex coax cable solutions provide extremely stable electrical performance with minimal impedance and insertion loss variation in dynamic applications. Highly consistent manufacturing processes ensure the industry’s smallest mechanical tolerances: 0.047, 0.086, 0.141in shield OD constructions. The flexible microwave coaxial cables offer 100dB or greater shielding effectiveness and protect signals from internal and external interference.

The highly reliable return-loss performance of the Temp-Flex coaxial cables optimises VSWR (voltage standing wave ratio) characteristics for the complete end-to-end interconnect. The helically wrapped flat-wire shield with braid results in excellent shielding effectiveness, enhanced flexibility and superior electrical performance compared with semi-rigid microwave coaxial solutions.

Temp-Flex air-dielectric ultra-low-loss flexible microwave coaxial cables are now available as assemblies from Molex in select cable sizes and connector types. Insulated with a fluoropolymer dielectric to ensure superior monitoring and control of radar, military vehicles, satellites, space, missile, RF ablation and test and measurement equipment, Temp-Flex cables provide a complete end-to-end solution.

“Meeting requirements for strong signal performances with limited signal loss is a growing challenge in high-frequency applications,” states Jeet Sanyal, engineering manager, Temp-Flex. “Temp-Flex microwave coaxial cables deliver up to 88% VOP – exceeding stringent aerospace and defence specifications while achieving optimum phase stability and bandwidth."
