P1dB’s Tight-Flex cables bend at the connector. The read more »

RF Test Probes from P1dB

In Circuit RF ProbingA good method for probing an RF circuit is to use small diameter semi-rigid cables, commonly referred to as Pigtails, to inject an input signal or sample an output signal. Typical configuration is with an SMA female connector on one end and a straight cut semi-rigid cable on the opposite end. P1dB read more »

Choosing an RF Flex Cable, Part 2

In Part 1 of our tutorial, we discussed some topics regarding the selection of the proper coax for an RF system. We covered the effects of coax diameter on performance and the various types of dielectrics used for a coax core. In this edition of Choosing an RF Flex Cable, we will continue the discussion on coax construction. Future read more »

Choosing a Flex Cable, Part 1

Choosing the best Flex Cable for an application can be challenging, given the variety of coax and connector options. Even if a Flex Cable’s connectors are predetermined there are still low-frequency and high-frequency versions of the same connector. For example, there are 6 GHz, 11 GHz, 18 GHz, 27 GHz and 33 GHz SMA connectors on the market. And read more »
