RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

Irvine, CA - Pasternack, a leading manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, announces the release of their newest line of 75 Ohm test cables with operation up to 3 GHz. These rugged cable assemblies are specially designed to withstand the rigors of test lab use and applications in 75 ohm communications systems. Technicians commonly rely on these high frequency test cables in technologies such as cable TV, MoCA 2.0 and MoCA 1.1 (Media over Coax Alliance) and DOCSIS (Data over Cable Service Interface Specifications).
Pasternack’s new series of high performance 75 Ohm test cables are available in two configurations including a type-N male to type-N male or a type-N male to type-F male. Unlike most F connectors readily available on the market, these F connectors are designed to perform up to 3 GHz which greatly broadens the usability and value of these test cables. Moreover, these connectors are threaded to ensure an accurate and secure connection to both the device under test as well as the analyzer. The test cables are suitable for engineering labs, production environments and quality testing facilities and are a good choice for use with 75 Ohm S-parameter test systems.
The new 75 Ohm flexible armored test cables from Pasternack exhibit excellent insertion loss of < 0.5 dB @ 3 GHz, and typical return loss is 28 dB. These new RF cable assemblies are designed with an armored jacket that meets ANSI/SCTE 99 2009 pull force and ANSI/SCTE 98 2009 tightening torque standards and are also capable of 100,000 bends minimum.
“Our new 75 Ohm test cables provide customers dealing with cable TV media hardware, set top box manufacturers and broadcast engineers a new cost-effective source for high frequency 75 Ohm testing components,” says Steve Ellis, Interconnect Product Manager at Pasternack.
Pasternack’s new 75 Ohm armored test cables are available today from stock. You can view the new cables by visiting http://www.pasternack.com/pages/RF-Microwave-and-Millimeter-Wave-Products/75-ohm-test-cables-up-to-3-ghz.html. Pasternack can be contacted at +1-949-261-1920.
