W. L. Gore announces the GORE PHASEFLEX® 110 GHz test assemblies. These test assemblies, with performance through 110 GHz, offer torque and crush resistance, as well as stability with flexure and temperature, all while remaining flexible. The devices provide good phase and amplitude stability with flexure over a wide temperature range. As an example, when an assembly was bent 90 degrees around a 1 inches radius mandrel, the change was 4.3 degrees and 0.05 dB at 110 GHz. When returned to its original configuration, phase and amplitude returned to their original values. The assemblies are also flexible, with virtually no springback, allowing for easy test set-up and minimizing stresses on devices under test, probe tips and adapters.
