Micro coaxial cable has compact footprint for high density routing
The TF-047 micro coaxial cable is a versatile cable, said Times Microwave Systems, offering reliability in a compact footprint for high density applications.
The TF-047 is a versatile SwaP-C cable that is compact and flexible for easy routing in space constrained areas. It has an overall diameter of 0.055 inch (1.40mm) and can support bends as tight as of 0.20 inches or 5.08mm. TF-047 is optimised to perform from DC to 50GHz.
At a maximum weight of 3.77 lbs or 1.71kg per 1,000 feet it is lightweight and available with a variety of push-on and threaded connectors. It is suitable for use in board-to-board, backplane and crossover box-box / inside-the-box connectivity, as well as for bench / production tests, troubleshooting set ups, signal fan outs and automated test equipment in semiconductor manufacturing. The cable will also be useful in quantum computing for external and internal RF lines and in laptops, tablets and audio/video products.
Micro coaxial cables enable next-generation devices to deliver advanced treatment or high resolution imaging, said Times Microwave Systems. “They are a key building block for highly integrated medical cable assemblies with improved manoeuvrability and safety,” said the company, adding that the TF-047 can also be used for medical applications such as flexible catheters, medical imaging and patient monitoring applications.
The TF-047 joins the company’s existing InstaBend 047, SF-047 and Phasetrack-047 micro coaxial cable products. for many of today’s more challenging installations.”
