Molex introduces Temp-flex microwave coaxial cables
Molex has unveiled microwave cables from Temp-Flex, designed for high-bandwidth applications using proprietary processes.
According to the company, the cables deliver exceptional electrical performance in military, aerospace and defence, robotics and medical markets, in addition to automatic test equipment.
The coaxial cables are available with either a solid core fluoropolymer resin dielectric (low loss) or an air-enhanced design with a fluoropolymer resin layer applied over dual monofilaments (ultra-low loss) around the centre conductor for increased signal speed.
High purity fluoropolymer resin offers a low dissipation factor and ensures a lower rate of energy loss.
Meanwhile, highly consistent manufacturing processes are used to maintain tight mechanical tolerances yielding extremely stable electrical performance.
“Our flexible microwave and RF coaxial cables are engineered to meet or exceed the stringent requirements for a range of rugged industrial and military applications,” states Jeet Sanyal, engineering manager, Temp-Flex. “Customers trust Temp-Flex standard and enhanced coaxial cable solutions to deliver the reliability and performance they need – and faster, more competitive lead-times.”
Additional benefits of Temp-Flex low and ultra-low loss microwave coaxial cable include:
Tight impedance tolerance: 50 Ohms ± 1 Ohm
Shielding effectiveness: > 100 dB
Tight time delay tolerance
Outstanding Insertion Loss
FEP alternative to PTFE and ePTFE
Bandwidth potential up to 110 GHz
Stability under dynamic conditions
Minimal phase change versus flexure
Low Smoke Halogen Free Available
