ALLEN, Texas, 2 April 2014. Fairview Microwave Inc. in Allen, Texas, is introducing a line of low-loss test cables for test environments where a rugged, phase stable cable assembly is required.

The test & measurement cables use LL335i and LL142 coax, and are rated to 18 GHz. LL335i and LL142 cables allow for relatively high power transmission because the resulting higher temperatures do not have a negative effect on the cable due to the thermal stability of the PTFE tape dielectric.

Where phase stability requirements are critical, Fairview's low-loss cables allow for a 75 percent lower phase shift due to the precise construction of these cables. This cable configuration offers attenuation levels 20 to 35 percent lower than comparable mil-spec cables.

Fairview's RF cable assemblies offer a choice of stainless steel TNC, SMA, and N-Type connectors and a heavy-duty booting to improve strain relief.
