The 18-GHz cable assembly from W. L. Gore & Associates is engineered for high-throughput production test applications. The PHASEFLEX microwave/RF test assembly withstands the frequent torque and bending that is common to testing environments on the manufacturing floor. Its stable performance ensures precise measurements and repeatability. The ergonomic design eliminates the need to use a torque wrench to connect and disconnect. Robust connectors minimize failure by incorporating maximum strain relief at the point where the cable and connector meet. The assembly delivers a crush resistance of 187 lb/linear in, and comes in 1.0- and 1.5-m lengths.
