Choosing The Right RF Cable Assembly

Coaxial cable assemblies are almost everywhere electronic systems can be found. And they have a simple job: to serve as a signal path to transfer signals from one location to another. But they must do that job without fail and with little or no change to the signals, whether they are high-frequency analog signals or high-speed digital signals. Because coaxial cable assemblies are so vital to such a wide range of systems, from rugged ground-based electronic systems to orbiting satellites in space, the selection process for those cables should not be treated lightly. Choosing the right coaxial cable assembly is not a trivial task, but it is one that can be made somewhat easier by better knowing what to look for in a high-frequency or high-speed coaxial cable assembly.
