Test & Measurement Test & Measurement

Measurement uncertainty has a direct impact on the reliability of test instruments. To determine if there is a quantifiable difference in measurement uncertainty between the TDR and VNA, W. L. Gore & Associates performed a series of experiments, initially testing six cable assemblies in controlled conditions on each instrument.

Test & Measurement Test & Measurement

The environments in which microwave cable assemblies are being used today are becoming more challenging with exposure to such conditions as extreme temperatures, chemicals, abrasion, and flexing. Additional challenges include the need for smaller, lighter packaging for cable systems that last longer and cost less.

Resulting from a lack of strict adherence to IEEE287 General Precision/Laboratory Precision Connector specifi cations (GPC / LPC), the OSP connector type is not generally considered to be suitable for calibration kit use.

Cables & Cable Assemblies

Commonly used in the industry, standard semi-rigid cable assemblies can lead to avoidable issues. For one, they are stiff and difficult to route in confined spaces, potentially leading to frequent cable failure. They are also challenging to replace, often resulting in costly configuration drawings and cumbersome, time-consuming installation procedures.
