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.

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 »
