Established VNA Test Assemblies Pump Up For 70-GHz Chores

W. L. Gore & Associates expands the functional frequency range of its “FF series” VNA microwave/RF test assemblies for stable, reliable performance up to 70 GHz. They promise reliable insertion loss and VSWR and ensure accurate and repeatable measurements via phase and amplitude stability with flexure. Prior to shipment, all assemblies are tested for return loss, insertion loss, phase stability, and loss stability up to their maximum operating frequency. Constructed with an abrasion-resistant polymer braid around a flexible armor casing, the assemblies withstand crush forces of more than 800 lbs. force/inch and have an auto-limiting bend radius of 2.25 in. (57.2 mm). For more info, visit
