Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Find answers to common questions about our products, team, and company below.
Currently, the typical lead time is 6 weeks. This can change depending on the order quantity and any customization requirements. We are working towards reducing the lead time for standard products, please let us know if the shorter lead time is important to you.
Our pricing is based on multiple factors, such as the bandwidth, physical length, and customization options. These factors together give a broad range of pricing, and a stating a singular price is therefore most likely misleading. Longer cables, with higher frequency bandwidths, and more customization will logically be the most expensive. Request a quotation for precise pricing.
Yes. We can include non-magnetic connectors on request. Please be aware that most of the connectors are already low magnetic, specifically our SMP variants. The connector itself consists of brass and gold plated beryllium copper. The housing of a standard low magnetic connector is made of Stycast 2850.
We recommend using the minimum length of the cable of 20 cm. With such length we guarantee the performance according to our specs. If the customer insists on 10 cm long cable, we can produce it. But the attenuation and reflection performance might be slightly different. This happens due to occurrence of the standing waves in shorter than 20 cm cables.
The cable length is limited by 100 cm at the moment. If your setup requires I/O longer than 1 m, we can offer multiple cables of different length.

Power rating is 10 W at f = 3 GHz
We did experiments under “extreme” conditions with the help of Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden. Below you will find a summary of the outcome:
- All measurements were performed in cw-mode (for low & high RF-power) and at RT
- Cable temperature for a fixed probe frequency and rf-power depends on the cable bending
- For low probe frequencies (< 0.5 GHz) : almost homogeneous temperature distribution
- For high probe frequencies (> 0.5 GHz): inhomogeneous temperature distribution – “hot spots“
- Formation of hot-spots seems to be a non-reversible process
- ODMR measurements at 0.2 GHz & 10 W input power at RT/LT were performed in order to check the long-term stability of the Cri/oFlex 2
- The cable was not destroyed or damaged during high rf-power operation
- The cable is used up to 5W in cw-mode and up to 10W in pulsed mode at low temperatures
- Microwave performance of the cable did not show any significant change after application high power
