The story behind Gigalink

Almost 40 years ago Gigalink-MCE started designing and producing customer specified cables for dynamic applications making Gigalink MCE experts in this field. In 1988 Gigalink MCE became supplier of the well-known ALPEN Microwave high performance ultra low loss microwave cable assemblies.Electrical cable seems to be a simple, straight forward product, but as soon as there is a dynamic element involved like vibrations, flexures, high temperatures etc. it is important that a suitable cable product is designed into the system.


The conductors, insulation materials, type of shielding, build-up, and outer jackets, all have to be matched to ensure a fit for purpose cable product.Today we are very successful in the design and together with our partners, supply of both microwave as electrical cables for applications where specific solution s are required to perform at its best in a dynamic environment.


We offer fit for purpose solutions, designed to meet your technical requirements, both electrical and mechanical. We do so within your budget, often decreasing the cost levels with your current suppliers.Cables are important components of all systems and a failure causes low reliability and high  expenses for repairs and non-working equipment.


Gigalink MCE delivers to the most demanding markets: aerospace and defence as well as to telecommunication and test and measurement applications.


''Microwave connections at its best''


Experts in RF interconnections

As experts in microwave connection technology we understand your demands on VSWR, attenuation, power handling, phase matching, phase and amplitude stability. Our range of cables are improved designs compared to the Alpen Microwave Cables which have been designed in the early 80’s of the last century.


When these cables are in their application exposed to flexes, high or low temperatures, vibration and acceleration, humidity or possible impact from outside we can propose a fit for purpose solution to ensure an as long as possible operational period.


Gigalink MCE offers the wide range of flexible high frequency signal coaxial cables and assemblies, where we can add protections, special designed connector for these cables,  humidity barriers and more.


We are looking forward to your challenge.


Innovative cable solutions

Our experience is not limited to RF products, on the contrary. In the market for electrical cables for demanding dynamic applications, we have a well-recognized expertise. Cable is often regarded as a simple product, low on the list of priorities. We have seen multiple cases where the choice of, for the application, not suitable cables ended up in big delays in the project and thus increased costs.

If you have a cable requirement in a demanding application, please contact us. We provide a balance of commercial and technical requirements to offer cost-effective design solutions, for our custom designed multicore cables and low minimum order quantities as little as 200 meters for special cables. We can work with almost all materials available in the cable industry. Bespoke conductors or extra protections, radiation resistance or 1000 °C environment?


Gigalink MCE is the first in Europe to introduce flexible, silicone encapsulated flat cable revolutionizing the market for dynamically used cables. Offering higher current carrying capacity, extreme flexibility, easy termination and space efficiency, silicone encapsulated cables have a wide variety of possibilities in robotic, airborne, military and space applications. We also supply our silicone encapsulated flat cable in a halogen free version.


We offer a solution where your vital link will meet harsh mechanical requirements.


Gigalink MCE supplies products to customers in demanding markets where product reliability and control on design of components is crucial. Therefore being certified according to ISO 9001 is an absolute must.


Standard procedures are the two audits we perform every year to guarantee that procedures are followed and improvements are recognised and implemented.


Each product supplied by Gigalink MCE is 100% tested, inspected, and certified to meet the requirements specified and is guaranteed to be free from defects in materials and/or workman-ship at the time of delivery.
