SV Microwave’s extreme RF cable assemblies are now avaialble through their distribution network. COTS flexible cable assemblies are avaialble in standard lengths of 6″ and 12″ in a variety of common RF connector styles supporting DC to 50GHz:
- Push-on/Blind-mate: SMP, SMPM, SMPS
Available cable types include Ø.047 and Ø.085 flexible cables.
SV Microwave’s cable assemblies utilize a proprietary low solder-wicking process that results in high flexibility and tight bends behind the cable ferrule. Click here for a complete list of SV’s standard RF cable assemblies.
