When designing an RF system, an engineer will frequently be very carefulin the selection of the coaxial cable, basing any decision on the cable’s ability to meet system requirements such as return loss or VSWR, insertion loss, shielding effectiveness, velocity factor, passive inter-modulation, power handling capability, bend radius, bending moment, diameter and other characteristics. It’s a wise decision to spend this “up front” time on cable selection, because choosing the optimal cable for the application will help to insure that system design param-eters are met.
