The Semi-Rigid cables are available with a copper or aluminum jacket and available with a selection of different platings and 4 different diameters (.047", .085", .141" & .250"). The Conformable®, or hand formable (BJ - Braided Jacket), has a tin filled braid with a metal foil underlay and is also available in the same diameters as the Semi-Rigid type . The Flexible version, our Mini-Flex, has an FEP jacket, round braid and inner spiral shields and is available in 2 diameters, .105" &.165". All 3 types (Semi-Rigid, Conformable & Mini-Flex) are manufactured using the same type dielectric core and have virtually the same electrical performance. The decision of which cable to use should be primarily based upon your application.
Smiths Interconnect offers several options for cable assemblies including amorized, weatherized, dust caps, extended boots, phase match, RoHS and weather proof sealing.
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.
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. The products have been subjected to extensive space qualifications and are available for purchase in straight or bent configurations.
Smiths Interconnect offers a wide array of Semi-Rigid cables in 4 standard diameters. These products (0.047", 0.086", 0.141", and 0.250") are available in copper or aluminum jackets with a number of different plating options. With so many types to choose from, we are able to provide your quick turn prototypes and your volume production needs meeting your bending configurations and performance criteria that are designed to meet your system requirements.
Our BJ series offers high frequency performance with >-90dB sheilding effectiveness and electrical performance very similar to standard Semi-Rigid cables but The BJ line of products can be purchased without the additional design challenges of bent-semi-rigid product as these are able to be bent during the time of installation to easily adjust to the physical requirements of a system.
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.
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.
