RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

Ipswich, MA – September 30, 2016 – San-tron, a designer and manufacturer of RF coaxial connectors and cable assemblies, will be discussing their latest innovations at European Microwave Week in London, UK October 3-7th in stand #67.
The pSeries™ family of pressurized cable assemblies is highlighted in San-tron's latest case study: London Underground Keeps Trains Moving (and Communications Clear). The case study explores how San-tron's engineering team custom designed an IP68 rated pressurized connector to keep moisture away from a critical conductor to connector interface without an o-ring - the culprit of the Underground's central problem. San-tron's UK representative Microwave Marketing uncovered the opportunity and will also be on hand to discuss the solution. The case study can also be downloaded here: http://www.santron.com/londonundergroundcasestudy
Also featured will be San-tron's growing line of SRXTM, Low PIM coaxial assemblies, which now include popular mini-DINs and the newest 4.3-10 series. SRX cable assemblies feature intermodulation performance as low as -168 dBc using flexible 141 cable. SRX cable assemblies come in a variety of in-cabinet, jumper, and long-haul styles, and can be delivered plenum-rated for fire retardation, which is commonly required of in-building wireless or distributed antenna systems (DAS).
Attendees looking to find 3D formed, semi-rigid cables will be pleased to know San-tron has also invested in customized CNC coaxial bending equipment for these complex RF/COAX assemblies. These and other custom and standard flexible and hand-formable coaxial assemblies can be cut to exact lengths, terminated with advanced techniques, and can include customer-specified markings and stress relievers. Assemblies can be delivered with phase and amplitude matching as needed and with fully verified test data, including VSWR, insertion loss, and delay specifications.
