W. L. Gore & Associates has focused on one goal for more than 50 years— engineering innovative solutions for the most demanding applications. Gore offers an unparalleled level of technical knowledge and experience. This know-how starts with a deep scientific understanding of fluoropolymers, particularly PTFE processing and fluoropolymer development. From that core technical base, Gore's expertise extends across a variety of applications. Gore's unique technical agility enables the development of a wide range of processes and creative, reliable technologies. For electronic applications, Gore provides innovative cable and material solutions that deliver electrical and mechanical integrity for industries where reliable performance is crucial and failure is not an option.
The GORE® PHASEFLEX® 50 GHz Test Cable Assemblies
are internally ruggedized cables with enhanced phase and amplitude
stability with flexure and maximum frequency of 50 GHz. Gore's
PHASEFLEX 50 GHz Test Cable Assemblies are based on a 0.140 inch OD
cable with a solid center conductor, Gore PHASEFLEX crush-resistant
ruggedization, overall 0.240 inch OD, shrink tube strain reliefs, and
two 2.4mm straight pin (male) A and B connectors. These test assemblies
are phase and amplitude stable with flexure, flexible, crush resistant,
and torque resistant. PHASEFLEX® test assemblies also offer phase
matching options, replaceable interface options/adapters to reduce risk
of assembly damage, and an integrated environmental protection system
that shields the assembly from fluid, dust, and dirt and extends service
The GORE® PHASEFLEX® Microwave Test Assembly combines the electrical advantages of Gore's expanded PTFE dielectric with an integrated environmental protection system. The internally ruggedized GORE® PHASEFLEX® Microwave Test Assembly offers excellent durability, lightweight design, and exceptional flexibility. These cable assemblies provide phase and amplitude stability with flexure; crush, kink and torque resistance; phase matching options; replaceable interface options/adapters to reduce risk of assembly damage; and maximum frequency of 26.5 GHz.
Gore's internally ruggedized, crush-resistant PHASEFLEX Cables
offer excellent phase and amplitude stability, flexibility, and
lightweight design. GORE™ PHASEFLEX Cables enable accurate and
repeatable measurements while limiting the need to perform
time-consuming calibrations between measurements. Key features and
benefits of PHASEFLEXs include crush, torque and kink resistance, phase
matching options, replaceable interface options/adapters, longer
calibration intervals, longer field-service life, suitability for
parallel or comparative measurements, and reduced risk of assembly
damage. Gore's PHASEFLEX Cables offer a maximum frequency of 18 GHz and
are available in cable lengths of 24, 36, and 48 inches.
Gore's Microwave Cable Assemblies offer optimized electrical performance, flexibility, and high-frequency options (up to 67 GHz). Key characteristics of GORE™ Microwave Cable Assemblies are maximum frequency of 18 GHz, two straight and rugged SMA pin (Male) Connectors (A and B), a 0.190 inch OD cable, standard construction, stranded center conductor, and available cable lengths of 24, 36, and 48 inches. These cable assemblies also offer increased signal fidelity, easy routing/installation, and broad bandwidth capability. Ideal applications for Gore's Microwave Cable Assemblies are test, aerospace, defense, telecommunications, and general purpose.
Gore Grounding Pads GS8000 are soft and highly conductive foam dots with adhesive backing for applications where conformability, high conductivity, and low compressive forces are required. The Gore Grounding Pads GS8000 feature low DC resistance, excellent reliability through Accelerated Life Testing, excellent gap tolerance take-up, and compensates for materials with large tolerances.
Gore GORE-SHIELD® SMT EMI Gaskets and Grounding Pads Sample Kit contains electrically conductive, low cost solutions. The SMT gasket consists of a solderable metal layer bonded to GS5200 gasket material and provides reliable contact points. The SMT grounding pad is highly compressible and resilient in a standard EIA 481 tape-and-reel format.
The Gore GORE-SHIELD® EMI Prototype Kit contains gasket materials that are designed for demanding commercial applications and provide up to 90dB of shielding effectiveness. The gasket materials are provided with an integral pressure-sensitive conductive adhesive.
The Supersoft SMT EMI Gaskets and grounding pads from Gore
are highly compressible, resilient, and very compatible with SMT
installation processes. The product is manufactured with a conductive,
silver-coated, and hollow silicone extruded material that is bonded to
a solderable silver-plated metal support layer. No curing is required
and the material is easily repairable, allowing the gaskets and
grounding pads to survive multiple solder-reflow operations.
