Phase Matched Cable Assemblies range from DC to 50 GHz.

Press Release Summary:

With Phase Matched Cable Assemblies, customers can specify electrical length in time or degrees at frequency of operation for specific assembly. Phase matching is essential when connecting to multi-channel receivers as it is important for discrete channels to match and track each other over frequency of operation. Applications include high power amplifiers, RF combiners and filters, multi-beam antenna arrays, and phased array radars.

Phase Matched Cable Assemblies Available from Intelliconnect

From DC to 50GHz

Manufactured in the UK

High or Low Volume

The Cable Assembly division of Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd, the UK based specialist manufacturer of RF connectors, now offers phase matched cable assemblies. This allows customers to specify the electrical length in time or degrees at the frequency of operation for a specific cable assembly.

Phase matching of a cable assembly is essential when connecting to multi-channel receivers as it is important for discrete channels to match and track each other over frequency of operation. Cables can be matched in “sets” or pairs. One of two methods may be used - electrical length (matched to a golden standard), or phase matched to another cable.

Applications for phase matched cable assemblies include high power amplifiers, RF combiners and filters, multi-beam antenna arrays, phased array radars

Intelliconnect has seen considerable business growth since its launch two years and ago the operation has is relocated to a new facility in Corby and investing in additional production equipment.

Intelliconnect provides high quality, UK manufactured, bespoke cable assemblies for both high-volume or specialist small batch requirements operating from DC to 50GHz for typically RF applications including test and measurement and defence.

Using their own UK manufactured high quality RF connectors, all types of cable assemblies are undertaken from wiring loom assemblies to high performance low loss cables operating up to 50GHz. Coaxial, triaxial and multi-way connectors may be specified and fully immersible waterproof versions are available. All Intelliconnect cable assemblies are 100% electrically tested before despatch. In addition phase matching is available where required to ensure signal integrity in individual, or batches of, assemblies.

Roy Phillips, Managing Director of Intelliconnect, comments, ”An increasing number of our customers are in the test and measurement market where phase matched cables are essential. We are pleased to be able to offer this service alongside our other cable assembly services. We are also unique in being a manufacturer of an extensive range of high reliability RF connectors for industrial and medical applications and are able to use our own high reliability components in our cable harnesses. We are continuing to invest in the company and will soon be able to test up to 70GHz.”

In addition to custom cable assemblies Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd manufactures a wide range of standard and custom RF connectors and components, including waterproof and fast turnaround custom designs which are undertaken without NRE charges to their customers. Intelliconnect also manufacture a large range of coaxial adaptors to facilitate inter-series connection and gender change etc.  Typical applications include MIL and aerospace, marine, oil and gas, medical and general microwave markets.

About Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd;

Formed in the UK in 2003 in response to the almost complete abandonment of the UK by the RF connector manufacturing industry, Intelliconnect joined forces with a small innovative US operation in 2004 and has quickly become a market leader in design led manufacturing of RF connectors, waterproof multi-pin connectors and cable assemblies. Both the UK and USA divisions of Intelliconnect now enjoy a growing reputation for high quality products and first class service. Their product range includes waterproof connectors which have become established as the solution of choice for specifiers in the marine, oil and gas, defence, medical and general antenna markets. They produce a range of triaxial components which are recognised as the best quality available in the market today. Their Custom design service, which attracts no NRE charges, is the quickest available in the connector industry today. Intelliconnect also offer a full range of standard RF connectors and a cable assembly service.

Intelliconnect is unable and does not wish to compete with the plethora of low-cost offshore product available in the market today. Rather they offer traditional engineering values coupled with innovation, agility and a passion for serving their customers.
