RF Cable Assemblies (up to 65 GHz) (Updated: 21 Jun 2018)


RF Cable Assemblies




The Semi-Rigid and Hand-Formable cable assembly can perform up to 18 GHz, 27 GHz, 40 GHz and 65 GHz maximum operating frequencies. All semi-rigid and hand-formable cables are fully tested and RoHS compliant. These cable assemblies has a fast delivery time of 1-2 weeks.


SMA, 0.141" Tin-Plated Semi-Rigid (18 GHz / 27 GHz)

SMA Semi-rigid Cable Assembly

The SMA 0.141" semi-rigid cable assembly has a typical insertion loss of 0.120 dB/ft at 1 GHz, 0.450 dB/ft at 10 GHz and 0.700 dB/ft at 20 GHz. This cable has a safe bend radius of 0.100" with proper tooling. Custom formed cable can also be arranged.

SMA Hand-formable Cable Assembly

The SMA 0.141" hand-formable cable assembly is an excellent alternative to semi-rigid cable where more frequent bending and adjustment of position is necessary. It has no significant electrical degradation when it is formed, with typical insertion loss of 0.120 dB/ft at 1 GHz, 0.466 dB/ft at 10 GHz and 0.658 dB/ft at 18 GHz. Both cable assemblies offer >17 dB return loss DC to 20 GHz, mates with SMA, 3.5mm and 2.92mm connectors.


2.92mm, 0.086" Tin-Plated Semi-Rigid (40 GHz)

2.92mm Semi-rigid Cable Assembly

To achieve higher frequency, the use of 0.086" semi-rigid cable is essential. This cable has a typical insertion loss of 0.220 dB/ft at 1 GHz, 0.800 dB/ft at 10 GHz, and 1.200 dB/ft at 20 GHz. This cable has a safe bend radius of 0.050" with proper tooling. Custom formed cable can also be arranged.


2.92mm, 0.086" Tin-Plated Hand-Formable / Conformable (40 GHz)

2.92mm Hand-Formable / Conformable Cable Assembly

The SMA 0.086" hand-formable cable assembly has a typical insertion loss of 0.300 dB/ft at 1 GHz, 0.850 dB/ft at 10 GHz and 1.450 dB/ft at 27 GHz. Both cable assemblies offer >16 dB return loss DC to 40 GHz, mates with SMA, 3.5mm and 2.92mm connectors.


1.85mm, 0.086" Tin-Plated Semi-Rigid (65 GHz)

1.85mm Semi-rigid Cable Assembly

The 1.85mm 0.086" semi-rigid cable assembly also has a typical insertion loss of 0.220 dB/ft at 1 GHz, 0.800 dB/ft at 10 GHz and 1.200 dB/ft at 20 GHz. This 1.85mm cable assembly can perform up to 50 GHz and 65 GHz when mated with 2.4mm and 1.85mm connectors respectively.


1.85mm, 0.086" Tin-Plated Hand-Formable / Conformable (65 GHz)

1.85mm Hand-formable Cable Assembly

Similarly, the 1.85mm 0.086" hand-formable cable assembly has a typical insertion loss of 0.300 dB/ft at 1 GHz, 0.850 dB/ft at 10 GHz and 1.450 dB/ft at 27 GHz. Both cable assemblies offer >16 dB return loss DC to 65 GHz, mates with 2.4mm and 1.85mm connectors.
