P1dB has Phase Matched RF Cables. Order a pair of assemblies or a set of 50 or more cables, phase matched to your requirement.

P1dB has delivered 100’s of phase-matched cables to our RF customers. From quantity 2 up to sets of 70+ cables, P1dB has phase matched cables to 5 ps, 2 ps or even 1 ps in some cases.
From frequencies starting at several GHz up to 50GHz, P1dB produces flexible phase matched cable solutions.

If the frequency is 27 GHz or less, P1dB’s SS141 cable is a very popular choice for phase-matched cable sets. Our SS141 cable is 0.163-inch diameter, double shield. It has excellent amplitude and phase stability without paying extra for high-end test cables. Typical solutions we produce are SMA male to SMA male connectors with assembly lengths from 12 up to 72 inches. Customers specify the maximum frequency of operation and a midpoint frequency for phase match, P1dB then supplies cables in many cases within 4 weeks.

Smaller geometry connectors such as SMP and SMPM can be supplied in phase matched assemblies using P1dB’s SS085 flex. The SS085 cable is 0.104-inch double shield flexible coax with excellent amplitude and phase stability.

For applications requiring very high frequency, P1dB has cable and connector options to phase match up to 50 GHz. Using 2.92mm connectors for frequencies up to 40 GHz or 2.4mm connectors for performance to 50 GHz, P1dB has produced flexible RF cable assemblies to meet our customer’s phase matching needs using our 130MP cable. This cable is 0.140-inch diameter and has excellent loss and stability up through 50 GHz.

P1dB can supply matched cable pairs for differential signal testing high-speed digital signals, and we have produced sets of many matched assemblies for MIMO (multiple inputs, multiple outputs) antenna testing required in next-generation wireless communications.
