These low profile, flexible micro-coax jumper cables offer operation from DC to 6 GHz and are ideal for wireless applications including Wi-Fi, Wireless LAN, Bluetooth, ZigBee, LTE, mini-PCI, mobile antenna/GPS/radio systems, PDA/PCS/cellular handset application and other wireless communications systems. These cables are commonly used to connect an external antenna to a mini-PCB.
The new RF cable assemblies from Pasternack include 40 unique configurations with multiple coax options including 0.81 mm, 1.13 mm, 1.37 mm, RG178 and double shielded RG178 (RG178-DS).
