    Care And Handling Of Cable Assemblies And Connectors

    Cable assemblies are critical to obtaining correct test results and signal integrity in many applications. Proper care and handling of cable assemblies and connector interfaces is critical for insuring accurate operation. When connectors are not properly mated or cared for, there is a risk of damaging test ports and mating devices.

  • 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...

  • When Miniaturization Matters

    It is imperative for military organizations around the globe to be able to find ways to lighten the loads that soldiers carry into battle. Every piece of equipment must be able to improve communications, agility, and lethality for soldier reliability. Connector and cabling solutions have been identified as one place to make such improvements. This white paper takes a close look at the miniaturization of military connectors, and addresses issues of size, weight and functionality.

  • Cable Connector Seals May Determine The Life Of Your Systems
    Cable Connector Seals May Determine The Life Of Your Systems

    This white paper presents numerous environmental challenges, such as the ability of connectors to seal out dust, dirt, and water, which must be addressed by cable connector manufacturers, along with a variety of standards that possibly need to be met.
