Utility™ Microwave/RF Cable Assemblies

High-End All-Purpose Test & Measurement Cable Assemblies to 20 GHz


Maury Microwave's Utility™ series sets the standard for high-end all-purpose test and measurement cable assemblies. Designed for general testing applications, Utility™ offers excellent value with its low cost, low insertion loss, excellent return loss, flexibility, and amplitude and phase stability. Utility™ is the ideal interconnection for reliable and repeatable measurements when mated with test instruments including bench-top testing, on-wafer characterization and ATE systems.

Utility™ cable assemblies are now part of the ColorConnect™ family! Following the proposed IEEE high-frequency connector/adapter color convention, Utility™ cable assemblies are among the first commercially available assemblies to offer clear indications of compatibility and intermatability. ColorConnect™ makes it a simple matter to avoid and eliminate damaged equipment, degraded equipment reliability, degraded performance and lengthy maintenance times due to improper mating (and attempted mating) of incompatible interconnects.
