Test & Measurement
Designed for test applications that depend on accurate, repeatable measurements, W. L. Gore & Associates offers GORE® PHASEFLEX® Microwave/RF Test Assemblies, which provide excellent mechanical durability and electrical performance. Our RF cable assemblies not only feature a rugged construction that prolongs service life, but they also offer high phase and amplitude stability for high-density and modular test applications at an affordable price. To optimize the performance of the assembly even further, they can also be paired with Gore’s available connectors.
Unlike Alternative Test Cables for Defense Aircraft
Gore believes that microwave/RF test assemblies are among the top mechanical and electrical considerations aircraft operators, maintainers, engineers and manufacturers must make. That’s because a study has found that over 75% of microwave/RF cable assemblies worldwide are frequently replaced due to damage during installation, damage during use, poor quality assemblies, connector termination and outdoor environmental conditions.
GORE® PHASEFLEX® Microwave/RF Test Assemblies has been recognized among the 2020 Military & Aerospace Electronics Innovators Awards. Learn more
Instead of replacing your microwave/RF assemblies multiple times per year, choose the right microwave/RF test assembly that will lower your cost, time and risk. Though many assemblies share similarities in appearance and specifications, GORE PHASEFLEX Microwave/RF Test Assemblies are the only internally ruggedized, flexible test assemblies that:
- Guarantee consistently high performance and long service life in harsh aerospace testing environments
- Have a construction that’s durable enough to resist crushing, kinking and twisting, while also preventing potential damage from exceeding a cable’s minimum bend radius
- Maintain repeatable, accurate measurements and stable electrical performance up to 110 GHz
- Withstand frequent connecting and disconnecting
- Perform reliably after extensive flexing, with some constructions exceeding 100,000 flex cycles
- Provide excellent phase and amplitude stability with flexure and temperature
- Reduce aircraft downtime by increasing testing throughput and mission capable rates
- Lower costs and reduce risk for R&D and System Integration Laboratory (SIL) by enhancing confidence in data integrity and reducing re-testing and replacing
Reliable Performance across Various Defense Applications
With proven performance that is prequalified and tested before hitting the market, GORE PHASEFLEX Microwave/RF Test Assemblies provide trustworthy results in a host of defense applications, including:
