A coaxial cable refers to a type of cable which consist of an inner conductor which is surrounded by an insulating layer and this insulating layer is surrounded by a conductive shielding. The conductive shielding further has an additional layer of insulation and is referred to as an insulating jacket. This cable is typically used to carry data over long distances. It can also carry analog or digital signal. When a coaxial cable is terminated at the customers end with the customer’s choice of coaxial connectors, the cable is referred to as coaxial cable assembly. These assemblies are often used cable-television (CATV) installations, for high-frequency RF/microwave connections, in precision test and measurement equipment and systems, and for transferring high-speed digital signals in computer networks.
The selection of coaxial cable assemblies is an important parameter to be considered for its application. For their effective use in various applications, the parameters of the various parts of cable assembly must be precisely controlled to achieve constant current conductor spacing. There are various players in the RF coaxial cable assemblies market that provide high performance and high precision RF cable assemblies and connectors. Coaxial cable assemblies with 50 ohm and 75 Ohm applications are available in the RF coaxial cable assemblies market. Various key players in the market also provide customized coaxial cable assembly solutions as per the need of the consumer.
