Hitachi Cable Manchester Introduces Family of Flexible Micro-Coaxial Cables

Manchester, N.H. - Hitachi Cable Manchester, Inc. (HCM), a leading manufacturer of electronic, fiber-optic, and premise cable for a variety of industries, announces the availability of its family of extremely flexible Micro-Coaxial (MCX(TM)) cables for Ultrasound medical assemblies, laptop computers, high-end workstations, automated test equipment, and other medical and security applications. Available in the 36 - 48AWG range, the MCX cables feature maximum signal integrity, low skew (line to line), low EMI, and virtually no crosstalk.

HCM's MCX cables easily route as individual cables, in a bunched composite cable, or in a flat ribbon (MCX RibbonX) cable. Most cables feature a PFA insulation and a PET jacket that allows significantly easier stripping than an extruded jacket. The normal stripping process is simplified when the RibbonX cable is used, and a 2-step laser process easily prepares the cable for soldering to the SMT PCB adapter card.

To complement the MCX single, ribbon, and composite cables, HCM offers 36AWG and 40AWG Twin Ax cables. These 100 Ohm, low cap cables offer the necessary combination of signal integrity and excellent routing capabilities. Through its parent company Hitachi Cable Ltd., HCM offers additional manufacturing capabilities in Japan and mainland China.
