THE LL335 SERIES of extremely low-loss cable assemblies features attenuation of 0.22 dB/ft. at 18 GHz. The 0.335-in. cable assemblies achieve typical attenuation of 0.048 dB/ft. at 1 GHz and 0.17 dB/ft. at 10 GHz. They can handle 1800 W CW input power at 1 GHz and 600 W CW input power at 10 GHz. The cable assemblies offer shielding effectiveness of greater than 95 dB with a low coefficient of thermal expansion from -55 to +200C, thereby ensuring that attenuation and phase performance remain stable over time and temperature. They provide a minimum bend radius of 1.7 in. Available in custom lengths with outer cable diameters of 0.195 and 0.335 in., the cables feature custom connectors with rugged stainless-steel, solder-clamp construction for optimum reliability and performance. Assemblies are available with a wide range of connector choices including SMA, Type N, and TNC connectors.
