New Network Analyzer VNA Cable Series for 50 GHz and 67 GHz Millimeter Wave Testing

50 GHz and 67 GHz Millimeter Wave VNA Cables

We debuted a new line of flexible, precision millimeter wave VNA cables rated to 50 and 67 GHz …depending on the series of course. Designed for use as cables for VNA test port extension, these highly durable and flexible VNA test cables are able to withstand the rigors of test lab. The new Pasternack 50 and 67 GHz vector network analyzer cable series is perfect for use where testing cables are constantly flexed during common test scenarios.

Our newest line of rugged and highly flexible network analyzer cable products have excellent electrical properties including low VSWR of 1.3:1 at 50 GHz and 1.4:1 at 67 GHz. Not only do the new millimeter wave network analyzer cables have excellent VSWR, this VNA cable series has superb phase stability with flexure of +/- 6° at 50 GHz with the 2.4mm connectors and +/- 8° at 67 GHz using 1.85mm connectors. The braided stainless steel armor surrounding the coax analyzer cable provides rugged, but flexible cables with a flex life exceeding 100,000 cycles.

The new millimeter wave vector network analyzer test cable group is constructed with rugged stainless steel 2.4mm and 1.85mm connectors which provide up to 5,000 mating cycles when attached with proper care. Superior flexibility of these 50 GHz and 67 GHz VNA cables makes it easier and safer to test a Device Under Test (DUT). A swept right angle network analyzer connector option allows these cables to fit in tight spaces and can reduce the length of test cable required in many applications.

The most common applications that benefit from our new flexible network analyzer test cables include use as VNA test port extenders, semiconductor probe testing, precise bench top testing and lab/production testing where the need for a highly flexible, yet durable cable solution is required.
