High performance cables and cable assemblies are typically well-controlled in their loss and VSWR performance, shielding (EMI) performance and especially, mechanical and environmental performance. The manufacturer’s choice of construction materials, in combination with the method of fabrication, determines the overall performance. As might be expected, there is a wide range of materials and construction techniques that are used to make cables for various high performance applications.
