Radar

Radar
With few exceptions, today's generation of radars employ a phased array or active electronically steered array (AESA) architecture to improve reliability and accuracy, and to allow tracking of multiple targets. HUBER+SUHNER offers a wide range of low loss and phase stable microwave cable assemblies to meet the requirements of today's systems. Miniaturisation is a key driver for higher integration and density. Our board-to-board solutions cope with the largest mechanical misalignment and are complemented by our Minibend products. The bend-to-the-end technology enables high integration densities without compromising performance and reliability.

Applications

  • T/R modules
Requirements
  • Low loss, phase stable cable assemblies
  • LSFH - low smoke free of halogen
  • Corrosion protected and highly dust- and waterproof solutions

Microwave cable assemblies

HUBER+SUHNER SUCOFLEX flexible microwave cable assemblies offer superior electrical and mechanical performance for static and dynamic applications. This series is a high-end product designed to provide optimal performance up to 50 GHz, where stringent electrical requirements, in particular electrical stability and low loss, are important. Ideally suited for test and measurement applications and defense systems. Additional lightweight high-end versions are designed to meet the stringent needs of space flights systems (i.e. satellites) and aerospace systems (aircrafts, helicopters, missiles), which are subject to extremely severe operating conditions. SUCOFLEX is only available as assembly.

SUCOFLEX 100

SUCOFLEX 100

The SUCOFLEX 100 series flexible microwave cable assemblies offer superior electrical and mechanical performance for static and dynamic applications. This series is a high-end product designed to provide optimal performance up to 50 GHz, where stringent electrical requirements – in particular stability and low loss – are important. Their mechanical and climate resistance properties surpass those of standard flexible cables. 

SUCOFLEX 200

SUCOFLEX 200

The tape wrapped SUCOFLEX 200 microwave cable assemblies have been specifically developed for high performance and anywhere the best insertion loss, high phase stability versus temperature, excellent return loss and mechanical stability are most important.

SUCOFLEX 400

SUCOFLEX 400

The SUCOFLEX 400 microwave assembly family has been specifically developed for high performance defense, medical, test and measurement technology applications, and anywhere the best insertion loss, high phase stability versus temperature and bending, excellent return loss and mechanical stability are of the utmost importance.

Minibend series

The Minibend series is a truly flexible, 100% tested, preassembled coaxial cable assembly line that is designed for use in low profile internal point-to-point interconnections between RF modules within communications systems. The patented solder-less cable junction allows bending of the cable immediately behind the connector, which eliminates the need for expensive, heavy, and performance-limiting right angle connectors.

Minibend

Minibend

Minibend is a truly flexible coaxial cable assembly which is designed for use in low profile, internal, point-to-point interconnections between RF modules within communications systems. Minibend replaces 0.086 inch custom semi-rigid cables with standard flexible cables, eliminating the need for predefined custom lengths and bend configurations. Minibend provides you with a preassembled and tested high performance, costeffective alternative in a variety of standard lengths and connector configurations.

LSFH cables

The PTFE/FEP cables of our RG/K series are designed for applications up to 200 °C and are characterised by low losses, especially at high frequencies. The Enviroflex cables do not contain fluorine plastics either in the dielectric nor in the jacket and thus provide a robust and environmentally friendly option.

Enviroflex

Enviroflex

The Enviroflex cable family enables users to quickly switch from fluorine-containing cables to halogen-free alternatives. The materials used in the cable design – both for the dielectric and for the jacket – do not include any fluorine-consisting plastics. The dimensions of the individual cable types are entirely compatible with the international RG standards. Standard connectors can be used without any restrictions with the Enviroflex cable family. HUBER+SUHNER´s control of various key technologies has proven to be an invaluable advantage.

Spuma

Spuma

The Spuma product family provides flexible and halogen free cable types and stands for its extremely low loss. With a screening effectiveness > 90 dB over the whole operating frequency range, as well as a tight bending radius, is a wide application range covered. These cables offer excellent electrical performance, especially an outstanding return loss (VSWR). Spuma cables are designed for applications up to 6 GHz and offer great opportunities in applications like industrial, railway, defense and communication.

Phase shifters

Phase shifters

HUBER+SUHNER phase shifters allow phase change while maintaining constant VSWR and insertion loss values. These passive devices have proven to be successful in aerospace, missile, and satellite programs. The construction of all phase shifters and trimming devices incorporate fine gauge threads for precise tuning. Phase shifters are terminated with precision interfaces per MIL-STD-348 including SMA, TNC, and N (in series and between series). However, custom devices can be manufactured using other interfaces.
