How RF Testing and Traceability Makes the Difference between Generic and “Hi-Rel” (MIL-Spec) Coaxial Cable Assemblies

by Pasternack The use of coaxial cable transmission lines for RF, microwave, millimeter-wave, high-speed digital, and other critical communications is a growing trend in military, aerospace, and high-risk industrial applications. Though the need for robust communication technology is substantial for these applications, the latest budgets and production cycles are often too small and too short […]

An Overview of Flexible Waveguide Operation and Construction

by Steven Pong, Product Manager, Pasternack Waveguides offer an ideal medium for the high frequency and high power signal transmission seen in radar and aerospace defense applications. The high transmit powers needed in these applications effectively factor out the usability of coaxial cables or most other high frequency transmission lines. From antenna feeds to test […]
