AtlanTecRF’s AFX series of flexible coaxial cable assemblies provides the microwave system designer with a versatile solution to equipment and sub-assembly cabling. With a braided outer conductor over a silver plated spiral strip the cable can be repeatedly flexed maintaining performance essentially equivalent to formed copper semi-rigid of equivalent size. The AFX range of STOCK lengths in standard assemblies will meet the requirements of most applications.
