There are six components of connector designs that must be evaluated when considering a low PIM design: contact design, connector interface, connector internal junctions, cable attachment, materials, and plating.
Carlisle Interconnect Technologies' application engineering group has developed specialized low PIM cable assemblies for installation of antenna and electronic systems.
The prevention of PIM only starts with high-performance designs and components. The most common source of PIM is created within the coaxial component terminations. Contamination-free precision assembly technique is essential for low PIM performance.
CarlisleIT application and manufacturing engineers have optimized our low PIM cable and connector products and developed termination procedures for clean, tight-tolerance RF assemblies that will reduce the introduction and effects of PIM into your performance-driven SATCOM systems.
