NMD 3.5mm High Performance VNA Test Cable Assemblies

Saluki’s SCAVNA series High Performance VNA Test Assemblies are specially used in high reliability vector network analyzer (VNA) test applications. The cable assemblies include NMD connectors which is solid and light weight can mate directly with VNA ports. Before shipment, we test all of our assemblies for return loss, insertion loss, phase stability and loss stability up to their maximum operating frequency. The SCAVNA series deliver the highest accuracy and greatest time interval between recalibrations of any test assembly on the market today.

The SCAVNA series cable assemblies are specifically engineered to provide the most precise VNA measurements in laboratory conditions. The SCAVNA series with excellent phase and amplitude stability can achieve high reliable test results with bend, crush and many other testing situations.

Saluki’s cable assemblies maintain excellent insertion loss and VSWR. Our assemblies ensure accurate and repeatable measurements because of their phase and amplitude stability guaranteed with flexure-tested for over 100,000 flex cycles and over 5,000 mating cycles.
