Reduce Noise with RD316 Cables

Small diameter coax cables, such as RG178 and RG316, provide a manageable solution when wiring a high-density rack system or when weight is a factor. A couple of issues though, with small diameter cables, are their poor isolation and insertion loss. RG316 cables are the better choice when lower insertion loss is important since their read more »

Reliable Test Cables at a Cost Effective Price

Test Cables are a vital part of an RF test lab, but high-end Test Cables can cost in excess of $1000. Why buy a high-end Test Cable for standard RF test or production systems when increased phase or temperature stability is not needed. P1dB offers a line of proven SS141 RF test focused flex cables read more »

160MP Series Cables When Waveguide Will Not Work

It is not always practical to use waveguide in millimeter-wave applications. P1dB’s 160MP series of high performance flex cables, configured with 2.92mm connectors, offer a flexible solution to 40 GHz. 160MP RF cables have low insertion loss and phase stable performance for applications that experience some flexure, such as in an antenna chamber. The 160MP read more »

SMA, SMP, and SMPM – SS085 Coax RF Cables

Does your RF system require high-performance SMA, SMP, or SMPM (also called SSMP or Mini-SMP) RF flex cables? P1dB builds a line of RF flex cables using SS085, high-performance coax, that has similar performance to 085 semi-rigid. The SS085 RF flex cables are configurable with SMA Male and Female, SMP (GPO™) Female and SMPM (GPPO™) Female connectors RF read more »

Pigtail Connectors

As part of the design process, it is necessary to test a component’s performance to compare it to an RF circuit simulation. The only way to perform in-circuit tests is by designing in test points or by using RF coaxial pigtails. The Pigtail method is accomplished by soldering a connector at one end of a read more »

Out with the Old and in with the New… Adapters

RF Adapters are NOT components that will last forever, especially in labs that constantly use coax adapters for product testing. Depending upon the types of adapters your lab purchases, they may be good for only a few uses or several hundred uses. Ensure accurate measurements! Take advantage of our New Year adapter sale to replace read more »

Semi-Rigid Coax Selector Guide

P1dB semi-rigid coax is used to build semi-rigid assemblies for test equipment, aerospace, wireless, medical and low PIM applications.  The advantage of semi-rigid coax over flexible coax is its increased phase stability and lower insertion loss.  Semi-rigid coax also provides the best electrical isolation and lower noise levels when compared to flexible coax. Another advantage of semi-rigid coax is that it can read more »
