W. L. Gore & Associates Inc. released the Gore Phaseflex 110GHz Test Assemblies, the latest addition to the Gore Phaseflex Microwave Test Assemblies family. The company said these test assemblies, with performance through 110GHz, offer torque and crush resistance, as well as stability with flexure and temperature, all while remaining flexible.

According to Gore, these products provide excellent phase and amplitude stability with flexure over a wide temperature range. As an example, when an assembly was bent 90 degrees around a 1-inch radius mandrel, the change was only 4.3 degrees and 0.05dB at 110GHz. When returned to its original configuration, phase and amplitude returned to their original values. As a result, accurate and repeatable measurements are achieved without needing to repeat time-consuming calibrations between measurements, the company explained.

Gore said the assemblies are also flexible, with virtually no spring back, allowing easy test set-up and minimizing stresses on devices under test, probe tips and adapters. The assemblies can be flexed, reformed, or repositioned while minimizing the chance of damaging the assembly or your test components.

Internal ruggedization makes these assemblies crush and torque resistant, while still maintaining a small outer diameter of only 0.165 inch (nominal), the company said. Even with this small size, the assemblies are still very low loss. Typical insertion loss for a 16cm assembly at 110GHz is 2.1dB, said Gore.
