Molex introduces the Temp-Flex® Foam-Core Ultra-Low-Loss Coaxial Microwave Cables that combine space savings with an effective dielectric that eliminates “phase knee” and provides ease of termination. Coming in both customized and off-the-shelf options, the Molex cables deliver stable performance at a range of temperature while attaining competitive loss characteristics as compared with air-enhanced PTFE.
Space-constrained applications, such as medical and test and measurement, require cables that are not only stable in varying temperatures but also have small outer diameters. The Temp-Flex Foam-Core Ultra-Low-Loss Coaxial Microwave Cable offers sizes down to 1.194mm shield OD which makes it ideal for applications with space limitations.
Features & Benefits:
Fluoropolymer insulation eliminates the “phase knee” effect and delivers linear electrical length (stable performance) at room temperature
Achieves 80% velocity of propagation (VOP) loss characteristics compared to air-enhanced PTFE and delivers reliable signal performance and lower loss characteristics than competitors’ air-enhanced PTFE dielectric
High temperature, thermally and mechanically stable dielectric withstands soldering temperatures to provide ease of terminations
Product offering down to 1.194mm shield OD combines high performance with space savings
Shielding effectiveness better than 100dB at high frequency
