European Microwave Week 2018 stand number: 30

As the move to 5G accelerates the requirement for more advanced ‘phase stable’ interconnects, Junkosha has launched its latest mmWave cabling solution, the MWX071, in a bid to go beyond the 70 GHz barrier, a unique capability in the marketplace. Designed for applications including faster wireless communications and military radar, Junkosha’s latest interconnect provides Vector Network Analyser (VNA) manufacturers with the capability to test very high-frequency networks that are at the heart of today’s highly sophisticated systems.

With this latest mmWave interconnect, Junkosha is continuing its move to design solutions that will meet the higher frequency demands of tomorrow’s 5G networks. Available with ruggedized NMD connector assemblies to deliver reliable and robust connections to the VNA, this new interconnect solution adds further breadth to the 5G oriented MWX0 series. Featuring characteristics including high tensile strength, a low dielectric constant and high flex life thanks to Junkosha’s precision engineered expanded-PTFE tape wrapping technology, this new interconnect meets the need for a future proof, highest quality cabling solution.

“The demand for mmWave frequencies is only going to increase as 5G gets ever closer to becoming a reality,” explains Masaru Omoto, Product Manager for Junkosha. “As we all know, 5G and high-speed data applications are now driving innovation. For those familiar with the ‘Secret of Junkosha’, it will be no surprise that we are continuing to push the boundaries of what is possible in the world of high frequency interconnects. A key enabler is our expertise and pedigree in expanded-PTFE tape wrapping, which has allowed us to deliver flexible phase stable cables that endure.”

European Microwave Week is the largest trade show dedicated to microwaves and RF in Europe. Including in excess of 300 international exhibitors, the event provides visitors with an opportunity to review and discuss next generation technology developments with relevant and interested parties such as academics, professionals and leading industry figureheads. It also offers a forum for discussing trends and exchanging scientific and technical information. The event is being held at the Ifema Feria De Madrid in Spain from 23rd to 28th September.
