Low Loss Cable Assemblies Offer Attenuation of 0.22 dB/ft. at 18 GHz

Sept. 4, 2009
Electronic Assembly Manufacturing, Inc. (EAM), an RF/Microwave coaxial cable assembly supplier, has recently announced the availability of Low Loss cable assemblies featuring attenuation of 0.22 dB/ft. at 18 GHz. The extremely low loss, 0.335-in. (LL335), cable assemblies also achieve typical attenuation of 0.048 dB/ft. at 1 GHz, and 0.17 dB/ft. at 10 GHz. Additionally, these cable assemblies can handle 1800 W CW input power at 1 GHz and 600 W CW input power at 10 GHz. They offer shielding effectiveness of greater than 95 dB with low coefficient of expansion over a wide temperature range of -55 to +200°C to ensure that attenuation and phase performance remains stable over time and temperature. These low loss cable assemblies feature a minimum bend radius of 1.7 in. Available in custom lengths with outer cable diameters of 0.195 and 0.335 in., EAM's low loss cables feature custom connectors with rugged stainless-steel solder-clamp construction for optimum reliability and performance. EAM's low loss cable assemblies are available with a wide range of connector choices, including SMA, Type N, and TNC connectors.
