High performance microwave cable assemblies and coaxial components supporting critical operations with application specific premium interconnects for high durability. Embedded with RF Florida Lab technology, our cables are available with customised option packages and are especially well-suited for precision testing applications and harsh environments in aircraft, marine, space and ground applications.
In-house capabilities encompass design, development, manufacturing and testing. Providing operational excellence tailored to volume manufacturing requirements, global sourcing, world class engineering talent and rapid prototyping.
The Lab-Flex® T products are designed to be low loss, high frequency cables that have minimal phase change over temperature and flexure. The phase response near room temperature is virtually flat and cables tested through a much wider temperature range experience only 600ppm delta from -40° C to +85° C. Phase over flexure response is extremely stable as well making this product an ideal choice for any application requiring consistency in the signal timing.
SpaceNXT™ QT Series offers improved phase stability over a wide range of temperatures found in space environments whilst meeting all NASA/ESA outgassing specifications. It is equipped with ETFE radiation resistant jacket materials. This combination enables customers to enjoy the benefits of lower cost of ownership while improving system performance.
SpaceNXT™ Q series are specifically designed and tested for next generation commercial space applications.. The SpaceNXT™ product portfolio provides customers a combination of technology and lower cost of ownership solutions that enable operators to overcome potential market entry barriers while enjoying the benefits of an established market player.
The ASR and ASR-F line of test cables are designed to maximize the repeatability of your test set-ups for results that remain consistent over hundreds of test cycles. Durability and excellent frequency performance is designed into every product on this line with the added bonus of being made with very phase stable materials. These products are available with the NMD test port connectors to allow for direct mating to the test port when a more permanent test set-up is desired.
The Lab Flex® family of cables offers high performance flexible cable assemblies with the lowest insertion loss and highest frequency response when compared other cables of the same diameter. They are designed with stainless steel connectors along with the strongest cable to connector termination of all the cables types. A wide range of diameters, protective coverings and electrical options are available.
Our Lab-Flex® S cable assemblies provide similar performance benefits as our High performance line with the added effects of being designed specifically for high flexure applications and extreme durability.
The Mini-Flex and Titan-Flex® product lines are excellent choices for economic choices for high frequency applications. Available in 2 diameters, these cables also are excellent upgraded replacements from many Mil-17/RG cables with the performance improvements of direct solder connectors and are available to increased frequency limits and with better shielding and loss characteristics.
From the production floor to outdoor usage to air-frame environments, Smiths Interconnect has options that will allow your cable assemblies to maintain their performance by increasing the assembly durability and ruggedness to a level required in many extreme terrestrial environments for mission critical applications.
Our Low Loss Semi-Rigid products are designed with solid Aluminum outer jackets for the ability to route cables "on-site" while maintaining the abilities to withstand high levels of radiation doses. The dielectric materials in this product are very low loss and phase stable over temperature variations found in many extreme environments.
Semi-Rigid space qualified cables are available with a copper or aluminum jacket, available with a selection of different platings and 4 different diameters:(.047”, .085”, .141” & .250”). High frequency RF cable assemblies are available with a wide variety of flexible and semi-rigid cable types with space orbit qualifications and are well-suited for Satellite Payloads (GEO/MEO and LEO constellations), Deep Space Probes, Ground Antenna Networks and Space Robotic Systems.
Conformable® or Hand-formable (Braided Jacket) cables, has a tin filled braid with a metal foil underlay and is also available in the same diameters as the Semi-Rigid type:.047”, .085”, .141” & .250”. High frequency RF cable assemblies are available with a wide variety of flexible and semi-rigid cable types with space orbit qualifications and are well-suited for Satellite Payloads (GEO/MEO and LEO constellations), Deep Space Probes, Ground Antenna Networks and Space Robotic Systems.
Smiths Interconnect is a leading provider of technically differentiated electronic components, subsystems, microwave and radio frequency products that connect, protect and control critical applications in the commercial aviation, defense, space, medical, rail, semiconductor test, wireless telecommunications, and industrial markets.
