*This product is only available as part of our cable assemblies.
The UTiFLEX® family of microwave cables is available in a wide variety of styles, from low loss and ultra-low-loss, to high-flex-life, and phase-stable cables for vector signal analysis. Each one delivers performance comparable to its most expensive competitors, but costs far less.
All UTiFLEX® assemblies have extremely low loss, low VSWR (typically less than 1.25:1 to 40 GHz), and the ability to operate at temperatures from -150° C to +165° C.
They are available with many types of armor, in virtually any length and connector style.
UTiFLEX® space flight cable assemblies are optimized for spaceflight applications. They feature ARACON® ultra-thin fiber as the shielding braid making them 25% lighter than silver-plated copper wire. ARACON is based on DuPont’s KEVLAR® and has a strength five times greater than steel. Insertion loss is as low as 0.2dB/ft at 18 GHz.
They also have an ultra low density PTFE for the dielectric, and a black Tefzel® jacket. If required, cable assemblies are manufactured in our Class 10,000 clean room by technicians who are certified to NASA soldering standards.
In addition, the UTiFLEX® family includes miniature cables that are perfect for applications in the tight confines of PCS and other space-critical systems. They are high-performance alternatives to RG-type flexible and semi-rigid cables.
