Skew-Matched Cable Pairs Suit High-Speed Digital Testing

Fairview Microwave’s latest line of 40-GHz skew matched cable pairs are designed for bit-error-rate testing, eye diagrams, and differential signals at data rates from 10 Gb/s to 28 Gb/s. The cables consist of three flexible models that are 100% tested for skew match. Performance specs include a VSWR of 1.4:1 and 1 ps delay match. They cover two channels with 50Ω nominal impedance and a bandwidth of DC to 40 GHz.


The components are constructed with microporous PTFE cable dielectric and feature 2.92-mm male connectors, triple-shielded outer conductors, and finger-grip coupling nuts. They are also supplied with polarity indicators and restraint bands to remain paired. Fairview’s skew matched cable pairs are in stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity.
