Junkosha has pioneered sophisticated fluoropolymer application technologies, and has brought this technology to its range of RF cables. Junkosha’s MWX range of microwave coaxial cable assemblies are flexible phase stable cables that utilize the excellent properties of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). Suitable for applications up to 120 GHz, Junkosha MWX RF cables are perfect for use with vector network analyzers that require the utmost precision. Junkosha’s broad range of high-quality phase stable cable assemblies are an excellent fit for any micro/millimeter wave application.
What is "Phase Performance that Endures?"
Microwave coaxial cables are subject to phase changes, which are caused by either bending the cables or from temperature fluctuations.
The cables are extremely flexible and feature a high degree of phase reproducibility.
The result is cabling that has excellent durability and maintains phase stability for a long period of time.
Phase Performance that Endures
Microwave coaxial cables can be subject to phase changes caused by temperature variations or by bending the cables. Junkosha RF cables are extremely flexible, phase stable cables with a high degree of phase reproducibility. That means you get RF cables that have excellent durability and can maintain phase stability for a long period of time.
In most cases, RF cables fail in a year or less. Junkosha MWX coaxial cable assemblies put an end to short replacement cycles with excellent long-life durability coupled with unmatched phase stability. Together, these features reduce Total Cost of Ownership by minimizing the expense of cable replacement and calibration. Junkosha’s core message of “Phase Performance that Endures” signifies Junkosha’s commitment to customers that their MWX RF cables will provide long-lasting phase stable performance.
