Pasternack Introduces New Lines of 50 GHz and 67 GHz Millimeter Wave VNA Test Cables
Flexible Precision VNA Test Cables from Pasternack Provide Accurate and Repeatable Test Results to 67 GHz
Irvine, CA - Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, debuts a new line of flexible precision VNA test cables rated to 50 and 67 GHz depending on the series. Designed for use as VNA test port extenders, these highly durable and flexible test cables are able to withstand the rigors of test lab use where these cables are constantly flexed during common testing situations.
Pasternack’s newest lines of highly flexible VNA test cables have excellent electrical properties including low VSWR of 1.3:1 at 50 GHz and 1.4:1 at 67 GHz as well as superb phase stability with flexure of +/- 6° at 50 GHz with the 2.4mm connectors and +/- 8° at 67 GHz using 1.85mm connectors. The braided stainless steel armoring surrounding the coax provides a rugged, but flexible cable with a flex life exceeding 100,000 cycles. The rugged stainless steel 2.4mm and 1.85mm connectors provide up to 5,000 mating cycles when attached with proper care. Additionally, the flexibility of these cables makes it easier and safer to test a Device Under Test (DUT). A swept right angle connector option allows these cables to fit in tight spaces and can reduce the length of cable required in many applications.
Some of the most common applications benefiting from Pasternack’s new flexible test cables include use as VNA test port extenders, semiconductor probe testing, precise bench top testing and lab/production testing where the need for a highly flexible, yet durable cable solution is required.
“Our new offering of off-the-shelf flexible VNA test cables rated to 50 and 67 GHz are a very unique and in-demand cable solution that are not traditionally available as a stocked item,” explains Steve Ellis, Interconnect Product Manager at Pasternack. “These new test cables also boast industry-leading right angle connectors and electrical performance that provide engineers with the perfect solutions for their high frequency testing applications.”
