Pasternack releases their new line of flexible precision test VNA cables rated to 50 GHz and 67 GHz. These VNA cables are designed to withstand Vector Network Analyzer cables that are constantly flexed during common testing situations.
Equipped with either 2.4mm or 1.85mm connectors, these network analyzer test cable assemblies also utilize a braided stainless steel armoring surrounding the coax. The braided armor in stainless steel of these VNA cable provide a rugged, but flexible assemble jacket with a flex-life exceeding 100,000 cycles and over 5,000 mating cycles. A swept right angle connector option allows these cables for VNA testing to fit in tight spaces and can reduce the length of cable required in many applications.
Pasternack's new flexible VNA test cables are available from stock today. You can view these new cables athttp://www.pasternac
Pasternack has recently expanded their portfolio of solid state RF PIN diode switches covering frequencies from 10 MHz to 67 GHz. These PIN diode RF switches from Pasternack display impressive isolation, insertion loss, and switching speed performance.
The new PIN diode switch selection is available in popular configurations including "Transfer" and "SPST" to "SP12T". These switches in PIN diode offer superior performance with high isolation up to 80 dB, fast switching speeds of 50 nanoseconds and insertion loss levels as low as 1 dB.
