This new series of pre-conditioned, low-loss, high-reliability cable assemblies consists of 128 basic configurations from three different cable types for a total of more than 1100 part numbers that are all available within 24 hours. These cables provide operating frequencies to 18 GHz and VSWR as low as 1.35:1. Captivated stainless steel connectors and thermally pre-conditioned, triple-shielded coaxial cable are assembled using J-STD soldering processes and WHMA-A-620 workmanship criteria. The combination of stable materials, processing, and acceptance testing work together to create a dependable cable assembly for applications where performance over time is important or the cost of failure is high. The final commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) cable assemblies are 100% tested and include a test report, as well as material lot traceability. They are ideal for defense, aerospace, and transportation industries, or any place where system operability is critical.
