Supplier of on-demand microwave and RF components, Fairview Microwave, has introduced a new line of 1.0mm flexible cables operating up to 110GHz. These cables are designed to provide precision results for Vector Network Analyser (VNA) testing, automotive radar testing, semiconductor probe testing and military radar testing. These VNA cables are suitable for use in radar, test bench, millimeter wave radio and microwave radio applications.

Fairview’s new flexible, high-performance VNA test cables operate at up to 110GHz and deliver precise test results using coaxial cable and 1.0mm stainless steel connector interfaces. The coax cable is covered by a non-conductive Nomex, light-duty armoured outer sleeve that protects the small, 0.27" diameter VNA cable and improves durability during flexure. These VNA cables feature 50Ω impedance, phase/amplitude stability under flexure and a maximum VSWR of 1.5:1.

These new flexible 1.0mm VNA test cables operate over a temperature range from -65 to 125°C. Additionally, these vector network analyser cables are RoHS and REACH compliant, and the assemblies are fully tested and are shipped with serialised test data. These new VNA cables are available in standard 6 and 12" lengths with male-to-male or male-to-female configurations off-the-shelf.

“We are very excited to introduce these new VNA test cables to our expanding line of test & measurement products. With the continued growth of millimetre wave applications, engineers can now order these VNA cables for same day shipping to meet their urgent needs,” said Randy Leenerts, Senior RF Engineer at Fairview Microwave.
