Ruggedized VNA Test Cables Offer Solid Phase Stability

Fairview Microwave
September 21, 2016

Fairview Microwave’s latest family of ruggedized VNA test cables handle frequencies up to 40 GHz. The amplitude- and phase-stable cables boast a maximum phase change of ±2° at 18 GHz, ±3° at 26.5 GHz and ±5° at 40 GHz. This minimal phase change is essential because amplitude and phase variation following VNA calibration can cause inaccurate S Parameter measurements. To mitigate these inaccuracies, amplitude and phase stable cables are required to ensure precise Vector Network Analyzer measurements. The cables are available with male or female versions of SMA or Type-N connectors for cables operating to 18 GHz, 2.92 mm and 3.5 mm connectors for cables operating to 26.5 GHz or 2.4 mm and 2.92 mm connectors for test cables performing up to 40 GHz. These cables are equipped with torsion-resistant connector heads that are attached directly to a stainless steel conduit style armoring providing a rugged design for up to 5,000 mating cycles with proper care.
