Cables and Connectors Head for Higher Frequencies

The dimensions of connectors and cables necessarily shrink with increasing frequencies to accommodate the smaller wavelengths at those higher frequencies. Government organizations such as the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program are well aware of how bandwidth is being rapidly consumed at microwave frequencies, in both commercial and military systems, and all available bandwidth lies at higher frequencies. The SBIR is currently looking for microfabricated broadband connector designs through 400 GHz for millimeter-wave and submillimeter-wave applications (working in particular with Nuvotronics) in support of test and research work.
