Irvine, Calif. - Pasternack Enterprises, Inc. launched its new online RF Cable Assembly Designer to help designers and buyers purchase the right RF cable assemblies for their applications. The web application tool enables the user to design and customize RF cable assemblies to their specifications from any combination of compatible connectors and cables offered by the company.
Here’s how it works. The RF cable assembly designer allows the user to select from a variety of connector and coax parameters in any order they prefer, such as gender, polarity, body style, max frequency, impedance, and coax attachment method. Users can select from more than 1,300 connector types and 115 different coaxial cables (including Twinax). After ensuring all of the parameters for the connectors and coax have been selected, including the desired cable length and quantity, an RFQ is sent to Pasternack’s sales and service team who will follow up with pricing, availability and a part number for the assembly.
The RF cable assembly designer also allows the selection of value-added services such as custom labeling, lead-free solder/RoHS compliance and custom booting/heat shrink.
“The new Cable Assembly Designer is a great new resource for engineers looking to easily customize the products they need for their specific applications,” said Steve Ellis, Interconnect Product Manager at Pasternack, in a statement. “This tool allows engineers to do what they do best – design.”
Pasternack offers RF cable assemblies with more than 250,000 possible combinations, all available to ship the same day they are ordered.
Pasternack also recently launched two new eCommerce sites in Chinese and Japanese languages with local currency platforms to make it easier for engineers and component buyers in China and Japan to purchase its RF components. If buyers prefer to make purchases via phone or email, Pasternack’s distribution partner in the applicable country will respond in near real-time to a customer’s request, said the company.
