AXOSPEC
Custom designed assemblies

Hybrid harnesses
AXON has developed hybrid harnesses, to meet very specific requirements for complex applications. They integrate various configurations of wires and terminations such as coaxials up to 40 GHz, high flex wires, shielded pairs, fiber optics, power cables, optimised shielding etc... and are connected to circular, miniature or coaxial connectors (SMA, N, TNC, ...).

Please contact us for your special needs

High flex microwave assemblies


The high flex microwave assemblies of the Axowave U series have been specially designed for high repetitive bending as required for dynamic applications (radar, surveillance or navigation systems etc). Materials have been chosen to guarantee good mechanical and electrical characteristics. The 5 U version (diameter of 5 mm) for example is able to keep its electrical properties (1.95 dB/m at 18 GHz) after 1 million bends. These cables can be used at temperatures between - 40C and +95C.
Flexlife test

EMI-EMC
The AXON EMI/EMC laboratory has been approved by the French Army to carry out transfer impedance measurements. AXON guarantees the electromagnetic protection adapted to the environmental conditions of the assembly. Two types of equipment are at AXONs disposal to evaluate the EMI protection of each assembly :
Mode stirred chamber

Measurement of the transfer impedance of cable or assembly using :


- Triaxial method up to 80 MHz ; - Micro-strip method up to 2 GHz.

to 18 GHz, using a mode-stirred chamber.

Measurement of the shielding efficiency of assemblies from 500 MHz up

CELLOFLON DIELECTRIC For excellent electrical performances


AXON use porous PTFE dielectric for the manufacture of microwave coaxial assemblies to obtain a dielectric constant as close as possible to air. The microwave transmission will thus be improved. AXON has developed and patented its own expanded PTFE products, brand-named CELLOFLON, available in taped and extruded version. The low dielectric constant of CELLOFLON helps to considerably improve the electrical performances of the cable, achieving lower insertion losses, a higher cut-off frequency and faster propagation velocity. For identical performances, the dimensions of a CELLOFLON cable will be smaller and the cables weight and volume lower. For example, the insertion losses of a 1 m AXOWAVE 8 G assembly, terminated by two N straight male connectors are only 1.0 dB at 18 GHz. The use of CELLOFLON improves the phase stability of the assemblies under mechanical stress, as well as when submitted to temperature changes.

Applications
AXOWAVE, AXOLAB and AXOSPEC microwave coaxial assemblies are mainly used as measurement and equipment assemblies, as well as for antennae. In the aeronautics field, they are used for radar, antennae, surveillance systems. AXON microwave coaxial assemblies are used in a frequency range of 0 to 40 GHz at temperatures of -55C to +125C or -40C to +95C depending on the type of jacketing material. The cables are terminated either by SMA, N or TNC connectors. On request, an overmoulding of the cable / connector termination can be done to assure even higher waterproofing and mechanical protection.

III

For use in radiocommunications (GSM, DCS, PCS, etc...) AXON offers assemblies for base receiver stations with a very low intermodulation level (PIM < -155 dBc). These assemblies are terminated with metric connectors series 7/16 and 4.1/9.5. For special applications, please advise the requested environmental (frequency, temperature, etc...), and electrical (insertion loss in dB/m at frequency, VSWR, characteristic impedance) characteristics, along with the type of connectors, and if needed, the flexlife, phase matching, shield efficiency, ... to allow us to design the cable assembly most suited to your needs. The AXOWAVE assemblies are delivered in individual boxes and are identified by a heatshrink tube with the following marking in black characters : cable type, Axon, batch no. and serial no.

QUALITY ASSURANCE
AXON is ISO9001/2000 approved
Electrical and dimensional controls are carried out at each stage of the cable manufacture. The VSWR (return loss) and insertion losses are measured on 100% of all assemblies produced, and a test certificate is automatically supplied. Other measurements can be carried out on request : phase matching, shielding efficiency, intermodulation etc...

Insertion loss of AXOWAVE assemblies


In order to calculate the insertion loss of an assembly, take the attenuation of the cable (in dB/m) shown on each cables data sheet, multiply it by the cable length (in m) and add the connector losses. Calculation formula (with straight connectors) : (dB) = cable attenuation (dB/m) x cable length (m) + 0.06 f (GHz) With : = insertion loss f = operating frequency (GHz)

VIII

2006 AXON CABLE - All rights reserved - released 16 Oct 2007/B

Typical insertion loss values for some connectors (in dB) : Straight connectors : 0.06 f (with f in GHz) Swept connectors : 0.07 f (with f in GHz).

Stability of insertion loss as a function of temperature


To calculate the insertion loss at a given temperature, please use the following formula :
T = 1.05 x 23C x [0.0038 (T - 23) + 1] with : T = attenuation at given temperature T (in dB) 23C = attenuation at ambient temperature (23C) in dB. Refer to each cables data sheet. T = given temperature (in C)
