The Alpha-Core division of Bridgeport Magnetics Group has developed a flat BM Pulse power cable for applications where high power laser pulses must be transmitted with low impedance and without distortion. When laser diodes and their power supplies are physically separate, interconnects must offer both low resistance and inductance while maintaining rise and fall times within the nanosecond range required for high power bursts. Suitable applications include military targeting and radar, industrial equipment, ship navigational aids, and machining. The BM Pulse Cable series features two ribbon-shaped conductors enclosed in a thin, high-grade polymer film bonded to the base metal. Conductors are laminated inside a common jacket of PVC or Polyolephine resin, and cables offer low inductance and high capacitance as a result of conductor width and close mutual distance.
