What Does a Coaxial Cable Look Like?

Sept. 11, 2014
As there are many environments and applications were RF devices find themselves, coaxial cables need to be built to meet a range of challenges.

Coaxial cables are one of the most common interconnection solutions for RF/Microwave/Millimeter-wave devices. Transverse-electromagnetic (TEM) mode waves are conducted through a coaxial cable with very low loss compared to free-wave radiation, and are resistant to outside signal interference. As there are many environments and applications were RF devices find themselves, coaxial cables need to be built to meet a range of challenges. This gallery shoes a sampling of the different coaxial cable technologies, styles, and classifications.
