Manchester, NH May, 2009 - Hitachi Cable America, a leading manufacturer of copper and fiber optic cables, announced enhancements to its custom-manufacturing capabilities for fine wire micro-coaxial & twinaxial cables.

"We offer many types of micro-coaxial cables and with the recent improvements, we can now produce cables using wire as small as 46 gauge (AWG). This fine wire capability, when combined with HCA's proven expertise in ribbon cables, positions the company to uniquely serve customers who require high performance cabling products with tight space constraints. Round or flat, we have a micro-coaxial/twinaxial solution for you," said Ken Davis, Design Engineer for the MicroCoax (MCX) Product Line at Hitachi Cable America.

Hitachi's MCX cable is available in 30 ohm, 50 ohm, and 75 ohm coaxial designs and 100 ohm twinaxial designs suited for data communications, telecommunication and medical applications. LED wiring applications are a particularly popular application for MCX cables.

"Our updated MCX gauge range spans 34 AWG to 46 AWG, complimenting HCA’s Low-Loss miniature coaxial line of 50 & 75 ohm products, based on conductor ranges from 19 AWG to 32 AWG. This gives Hitachi Cable America one of the most comprehensive fine wire coaxial product lines in the country," said Joseph Iamartino, Director of New Business Development.

Companies interested in obtaining more information about Hitachi's MCX products are encouraged to contact the Sales Department at +1.800.772.0116, or visit the fine wire coaxial cable product web page to see a few of the many possible cable options.
