Coaxial RF Cable Assemblies

With the increasing prevalence of more sophisticated RF / Microwave systems using multiple interactive signals and arrays, systems are becoming more sensitive to phase variations in transmission lines. With these technology advances, comes the need for RF cable assemblies that deliver more than just acceptable attenuation and return loss. Phase-stability becomes crucial. RF Test Engineers have long utilized RF cable assemblies with improved phase-stability performance in sensitive test setups to avoid variations in results tied solely to the cables themselves. For RF cable assemblies Phase performance comes in 3 forms, Phase-Tracking vs Temperature, Phase-stability vs Temperature, and Phase-stability vs Flexure.
