A range of microwave and RF cable assemblies, connectors and adaptors has been introduced by GTK. Manufactured across a range of family sizes, from standard through to ultra-miniature, the devices support frequencies of up 110GHz.
Featuring 30µin gold plating on the core contact, the connectors are offered in PCB-mount versions or as part of cable assembly. The corresponding adaptors are provided in either in-series or inter-series configurations.
To meet customer requirements, the cable assemblies can be manufactured using a variety of cable types. For simple applications, a standard flexible cable is available, while for more complex applications a flexible semi-rigid cable and a machine-formed semi-rigid cable are available. The flexible semi-rigid cable can be hand formed into basic shapes, whereas, the machine-formed semi-rigid cable holds it's shape.
Tested for continuity, short circuits, open circuits and contact resistance, the cable assemblies are high quality and high performing. Using network analysers, all production batches are tested for insertion loss and VSWR. On request, GTK can supply customers with test reports.
Chas Shale, Business Manager for cable assemblies, GTK, said, “We have made a significant investment in developing this product portfolio, which enables us to address a wide range of vertical markets such as COTS, broadcast and communications, test and measurement, industrial electronics and aerospace. We offer a high level of customisation for both cable assemblies and connectors, helping customers to incorporate these products into the new product designs.”
