Swiss-based HUBER + SUHNER unveiled innovative new additions to its radio frequency test assemblies and multicoax connector catalogues at DesignCon 2016 in Santa Clara, Calif.
The new VNA (vector network analyser) test lead series Sucotest 500V join the existing portfolio of assemblies including SUCOFLEX 100, Sucotest 18/18A and Sucotest 26/40, globally recognised as offering superior test measurement capabilities and elite quality of radio frequency transmission.
The new Sucotest 500V series exceeds current industry standards for vector network analyzers (VNAs). Qualities include rugged design and temperature and movement stability, the accuracy of measurements guaranteed is second to none, alongside constant electrical performance and consistent quality.
Improved system reliability and precision, longer service life, repeatable measurements and reduced equipment downtime are just some of the qualities that the assemblies can bring to radio frequency testing environments.
Key benefits brought to test and measurement environments are ruggedized cable construction and Network Measurement Division (NMD) style connectors that withstand repetitive mating, flexure, crushing, twisting and bending whilst simultaneously reducing equipment downtime due to the increased frequency of intervals between calibrations.
Additionally, the 80 GHz coaxial to printed circuit board (PCB) all-in-one solution will be presented at DesignCon. The unique solution features superb electrical performance alongside an easy to handle snap connection mechanism to the PCB.
The solution permits high-end measurement setups for both high-speed digital and radio frequency testing. The PCB side of the solution is comprised of field-tested standard micro miniature print connector (MMPX) snap connectors coupled with a MMPX male to PC 1.0 female adaptor. The link between the adaptor and test equipment is made possible with a HUBER+SUHNER Astrolab 1mm male-to-male cable assembly.
The all-in-one solution offers broadband characteristics from DC to 80 GHz, easy handling and high-speed digital testing for test and measurement, customer experience management and users.
