2 4 The Story of Reliability, performance and service. Our motto for more than 40 years.

Reliability, performance and service. Our motto for more than 40 years.

For over forty years, designers throughout the world have come to rely on RF and microwave transmission line products from MICRO-COAX. We have built our reputation on delivering reliable, high-performance, cost-effective solutions to the most challenging cable configuration problems.

In 1962, the founders of Uniform Tubes identified a need for a company that could supply high-performance, semi- rigid microwave transmission lines at reasonable prices. They realized that microwave cables, because they must often transfer very low-level signals, must be precision components that deliver consistent performance under widely varying conditions.

With these challenges before them, the team purchased the MicroDelay Division of Franklin Technical to design and manufacture semi-rigid cables and waveguide delay lines that compromise nothing in order to achieve the best possible combination of performance and reliability.

The success of this division led to the formation of MICRO-COAX, a wholly owned subsidiary, in 1985.

Today, MICRO-COAX continues its success with a growing product line that includes: UTiFLEX ® flexible cable assemblies, M-FLEX ® high performance flexible cable, UTiFORM ® hand-formable cable, ARACON ® brand metal clad fiber, semi-rigid assemblies and delay lines, as well as the broadest range of semi-rigid cables in the industry.

Each of these parts has options regarding material, size and in most cases, configuration, as will be explained in this catalog.

Cable conductors and insulators can be closely controlled to inner and outer diameters and assembled in such a manner that tolerances are mantained through the entire cable length. This is true even when secondary operations, such as bending or coiling, are involved. Thus, the most practicable performance criteria can be established and maintained.

performance criteria can be established and maintained. Micro-Coax semi-rigid cable is still the best pure microwave

Micro-Coax semi-rigid cable is still the best pure microwave transmission medium available in the world. The solid tubular outer conductor yields in excess of –120dB RF shielding and enables the dielectric and center conductor to remain precisely spaced. This results in optimum impedance control as well as the lowest possible insertion loss and weight-to- size ratios.

Semi-rigid cables are also inexpensive to purchase when compared to many other coaxial cable alternatives. The primary considerations for using semi-rigid are the availability of bend tooling, the difficulty in routing and the need to re-form the cable. Generally, the more flexibility required, the more the designer should consider other alternatives. However, for pure microwave performance semi-rigid can not be beat.

With the largest selection of semi-rigid cables in the industry, Micro-Coax has a solution for all of your cable configuration needs.

Our extensive line of semi-rigid coaxial cables include:

Low Loss cables employing a low density PTFE dielectric for improved insertion loss, electrical phase stability and increased temperature range (page 29).Our extensive line of semi-rigid coaxial cables include: MIL-DTL-17 cables on the MIL-DTL-17 qualified products list

THE

CENTER

CONDUCTOR

Function

The center conductor, usually of solid metal, is the primary signal carrier in Semi-Rigid Cables. Most attenuation occurs on the surface area, making surface finish or plating an important element. In large cables, a tubular center conductor reduces thermal conductivity without any related reduction in high frequency conductivity and reduces overall weight.

Materials

Silver-plated copper (SPC) or silver-plated copper wire (SPCW) is frequently used as the center conductor because of its excellent high frequency conductivity. Design considerations may dictate the selection of another material based on the properties that are most important in a specific application. Reference the table below for details.

Platings and Finishes

Center conductors are normally silver-plated to prevent oxidation during manufacture and to improve the solderability of the finished product. For other plating options to meet special requirements, see the table of Plating and Finishes on Page 10. For finishes other than those shown, consult with MICRO-COAX.

Function

In Semi-Rigid Cable, the dielectric material between the outer and center conductors maintains the spacing and geometry of the cable and ensures mechanical integrity during forming and bending, or when under pressure. The outer conductor can also be insulated to give added resistance to electrical breakdown, abrasion, cut-through and chemical solvents, or where packaging requires that the cable must be isolated from other circuit components.

Materials

The table below gives performance information for the most commonly used dielectric or insulating materials. As a general rule, the lower the dielectric constant, the lower the dissipation factor and attenuation, and the higher the velocity of propagation of the cable. An additional selection factor, not shown in the table, is the ability to bond to conductors and/or other plastics.

DIELECTRIC OR INSULATING MATERIAL

and/or other plastics. DIELECTRIC OR INSULATING MATERIAL The most commonly used dielectric for high performance

The most commonly used dielectric for high performance coaxial cables is PTFE in both its solid and low density (otherwise known as low loss or micro-porous) forms. PTFE is a good choice for a dielectric due to its low reactivity to chemicals and low dielectric constant. PTFE meets the Type F-1 dielectric requirements of MIL-DTL-17. It has a higher maximum operating temperature than many common dielectrics and is RoHS compliant. Low density PTFE is the same material as solid PTFE, but with slightly less processing. This gives it a lower dielectric constant and dissipation factor, but increases the minimum bend radius of the cable. Cables employing both types of PTFE dielectrics have commercial connectors available. For a list of our low density dielectric cables, please see pages 29-33.

Function

The outer conductor serves several purposes. It minimizes power loss, maximizes the mechanical integrity and RF shielding of the cable and provides the desired interface with standard or special connections. The ID, or inner surface, of the outer conductor acts as an electrical conductor.

Materials

Copper and Aluminum tubing is frequently used as the outer conductor in Semi-Rigid Coaxial Cables. Design considerations may dictate the selection of another material based on the properties that are most important to a specific application.

Properties

Extremely close tolerances in the inner and outer diameter of the outer conductor must be maintained throughout the entire length of a cable to ensure reliability and repeatability of performance.

Platings and Finishes

Platings and finishes used on outer conductors are electro-deposited. While direct plating on copper base alloys is practical, other outer conductor materials, such as aluminum, require a copper strike or under-plate prior to the final plating operation. There are many plating options to meet unusual environmental conditions, such as salt spray or high humidity, as well as for cosmetic appearance and solderability. See the table below for details. For finishes other than those shown, consult MICRO-COAX.

MIL-DTL-17 APPROVED CABLES

MIL-DTL-17 APPROVED Many Micro-Coax Semi-Rigid coaxial cables have successfully completed qualification and have been approved under the MIL-DTL-17 Qualified Products List (QPL).

Tests ensure cable conformance with broadband performance requirements for attenuation and SWR (structural return loss), coaxial concentricity, conductor adhesion, dimensional stability and weight.

“M17” part numbers supercede familiar “RG” partconductor adhesion, dimensional stability and weight. numbers. RG specifications have been deleted by the Defense

numbers. RG specifications have been deleted by the Defense Electronics Supply Center (DESC).

Cables designated M17/129, 130 and 133 are markeddeleted by the Defense Electronics Supply Center (DESC). continuously for visual cable identification HOW MIL-DTL-17

continuously for visual cable identification

HOW MIL-DTL-17 APPROVAL BENEFITS COSTUMERS Under MIL-DTL-17, all Micro-Coax M17 qualified cables are inspected for quality and optimum performance prior to being put in stock. This eliminates the need for special purchasing specifications and costly, time consuming “customized” inspection previously required to conform to the customer’s group testing requirements of MIL-DTL-17.
