Ultra Low Loss Cables

*This product is only available as part of our cable assemblies.


UTiFLEX Ultra Low Loss cable assemblies are optimized to provide the lowest insertion loss available in a flexible cable construction up to 18, 26.5, and 40 GHz.

The cables utilize an ultra low density PTFE dielectric that lowers weight and insertion loss, improves electrical stability, and provide greater resilience and flexibility when compared to standard microwave cables.

Cables are sized to provide the best possible insertion loss over specific frequency ranges:

  • For applications up to 26.5 GHz, select Ultra Low Loss UFB205A or UFB197C.
  • If the application is less than 18 GHz, choose the Ultra Low Loss UFB311A or UFB293C.
  • For applications greater than 26.5 GHz but less than 40 GHz and lower loss is required, choose the Ultra Low Loss UFB142A cable.
  • If size and flexibility are critical, consider the Ultra Low Loss UFB142C cables.

All UTiFLEX cable assemblies are designed to survive the harshest and most stringent environments and have tested successfully for numerous environmental requirements. After exposure to these conditions, the cable assembly did not show visible damage and the insertion loss, SWR, and connector interface dimensions remained within specified limits.
