Not all semi-rigid cable assemblies are alike. Using basic techniques, inexpensive labor and imported connectors, one can manufacture a reasonable semi rigid cable assembly with good electrical performance that will satisfy many requirements. However, if tight phase-matching, precision bending, guaranteed repeatable performance, plating integrity or excellent solder joint fill are required, then consider semi rigid cable assemblies from Micro-Coax. We have decades of heritage supporting precision military, space, test and telecommunications applications using Micro-Coax cable and approved connectors of our own design or from a small number of rigorously approved sub-contractors. At Micro-Coax precision does not necessarily imply high cost, either. Where appropriate, we employ fully automated bending techniques and high capacity production cells with real-time x-ray, drop-in inspection fixtures and fully automated testing to ensure repeatable reliable and affordable cable assemblies leave our factory. Many features contribute to designing an excellent semi-rigid cable assembly. If requirements allow consider the following guidelines:
