Tyco Electronics - Press Release 6-5-2007


TYCO ELECTRONICS DEVELOPS M/A-COM RADIATING CABLE ANTENNA SERIESNew Broadband Antenna Line Compatible with Cellular, Bluetooth and WLAN Frequency Bands

LOWELL, Mass. – June 5, 2007 – Tyco Electronics today announced a new line of M/A-COM radiating cable antennas, which is designed to replace conventional antennas in applications that require wide frequency bandwidths and deployment in physical spaces that present extreme challenges to traditional antenna solutions. The M/A-COM radiating cable antenna series is ideal for cellular, Bluetooth and WLAN frequency band installations, as well as airborne, vehicular and ground-based applications. The series’ unique antenna assemblies feature a low-loss, flexible, coaxial cable construction, which incorporates radiating apertures in the cable’s outer conductor.

“Because we maintain all of our cable design and manufacturing capability in-house, we can provide customized constructions that can fully meet installation and application requirements on a made to order basis,” said Ray Schwartz, cable technologist, Tyco Electronics M/A-COM Cable Products. “In addition, we also design and manufacture our own connectors. As a result, we can optimize the critical cable-to-connector transition, as well as the electrical performance of the connector interface for each assembly – making M/A-COM’s new antenna line the perfect solution for any manufacturer’s radiating cable antenna requirements.”

The M/A-COM radiating cable antennas operate over broad frequency ranges (400 MHz – 6,000 MHz) and can be used for transmit, receive and simultaneous Tx/Rx applications. If desired, the M/A-COM antenna engineering staff can tailor the apertures for optimal performance over specific frequency bands. The antenna construction is rugged, meeting environmental performance requirements for operating temperature, thermal shock, weather resistance, vibration, shock, flammability, smoke density and toxicity.

Tyco Electronics has produced cable antennas up to approximately 200 feet in length with uniform gain along the entire length of the antenna. An end-to-end extruded FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene) jacket protects the apertures and prevents moisture ingression should the radiating cable be installed in humid or moist areas.

Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
