RF Semi-Rigid Cable Assemblies

The Semi-Rigid cables are available with a copper or aluminum jacket and available with a selection of different platings and 4 different diameters (.047", .085", .141" & .250"). The Conformable®, or Hand-Formable (BJ - Braided Jacket), has a tin filled braid with a metal foil underlay and is also available in the same diameters as the Semi-Rigid type . The Flexible version, our Mini-Flex, has an FEP jacket, round braid and inner spiral shields and is available in 2 diameters, .105" &.165".  All 3 types (Semi-Rigid, Conformable & Mini-Flex) are manufactured using the same type dielectric core and have virtually the same electrical performance.  The decision of which cable to use should be primarily based upon your application.

Semi-Formable Cable Assemblies

Semi-Formable Cable Assemblies

Our Low Loss Semi-Rigid products are designed with solid Aluminum outer jackets for the ability to route cables "on-site" while maintaining the abilities to withstand high levels of radiation doses. The dielectric materials in this product are very low loss and phase stable over temperature variations found in many extreme environments. The products have been subjected to extensive space qualifications and are available for purchase in straight or bent configurations.

Precision Test Cable Assemblies

Precision Test Cable Assemblies

The ASR and ASR-F line of test cables are designed to maximize the repeatability of your test set-ups for results that remain consistent over hundreds of test cycles. Durability and excellent frequency performance is designed into every product on this line with the added bonus of being made with very phase stable materials. These products are available with the NMD test port connectors to allow for direct mating to the test port when a more permanent test set-up is desired.
