  • Application Note: Application Guide To RF Coaxial Connectors And Cables

    RF coaxial connectors provide vital RF links in communications, broadcast, EMC testing, commercial and military, as well as test and measurement fields. This article provides guidance and insight in choosing connectors best suited to accommodate your specific application.

  • Crossing Enemy Lines – The Growing Demand For Submersible Technology

    This paper examines USSOCOM's emerging requirements for new and updated submersible equipment, with a focus on the factors that qualify such equipment for operation in combat environments. Specifically, it addresses the components most often considered the weakest link – namely, electrical cable connectors. Typically, significant changes in military equipment requirements such as this spawn innovation in the private sector. So the paper concludes by reviewing the types of equipment for which the 20-meter submersible capability may soon become standard.

  • Application Note: Cable Loss Masking Effect

    The masking effect of cable loss may cause your antenna to "appear" to perform more efficiently than is actually the case. In fact, it is possible to measure apparently acceptable VSWR or return loss levels even though your antenna may be completely out of operation. The purpose of this article is to provide an understanding of cable loss masking effect and explain how to avoid these pitfalls...

  • Proving Installed Performance Of Airframe Microwave Assemblies
    Proving Installed Performance Of Airframe Microwave Assemblies

    A recent study conducted for the aerospace industry showed that 29 percent of respondents said the cause of Microwave/RF cable failure or repair is due to damage during installation. Damaged airframe microwave assemblies result in system failures, re-testing, delayed production, increased maintenance downtime, and eventual replacement of the entire setup.
