GTK announced the launcRF cable assembliesh of a comprehensive range of microwave and RF cable assemblies, connectors and adaptors that can be used in many diverse applications. Supporting maximum frequencies of up 110 GHz, these products can be manufactured across the range of family sizes, from standard through to ultraminiature. All connectors are available in PCB-mount versions or as part of cable assembly, and have 30μ" gold plating on the core contact. The corresponding adaptors are available in either in-series or inter-series configurations.

All cable assemblies are manufactured to customers’ specific requirements using a variety of different cable types. These include standard flexible cable for simple applications; flexible semi-rigid cable that can be hand-formed into basic shapes; and machine-formed semi-rigid cable that permanently holds its shape. Appreciating the need for quality and performance, all cable assemblies are tested for continuity, short circuits, open circuits and contact resistance. Additionally, all production batches are tested for insertion loss and VSWR using network analysers. GTK can provide individual test reports as required by customers.

Chas Shale, business manager for cable assemblies at GTK, said, "We have made a significant investment in developing this product portfolio, which enables us to address a wide range of vertical markets such as COTS, broadcast and communications, test and measurement, industrial electronics and aerospace. We offer a high level of customisation for both cable assemblies and connectors, helping customers to incorporate these products into the new product designs."
