50 GHz Low-Loss RF Coax Cable Assemblies From Crystek Feature 2.4 mm Stainless Steel Connectors


Crystek has extended the frequency range of its high performance RF coaxial cable assemblies to 50 GHz.

Crystek has extended the frequency range of its high performance RF coaxial cable assemblies to 50 GHz. The new 50 GHz low-loss RF cable assemblies feature corrosion-resistant 2.4 mm 303 stainless steel connectors and three levels of shielding for low attenuation (loss) over distance (1.44 dB/ft. at 50 GHz). They are in stock in standard lengths of 24", 39.4" and 48", with custom lengths available.

Ideally suited for high-frequency interconnects in mission-critical applications and microwave laboratories, the new cable assemblies (P/N series CC2450-MM-150) provide RF shielding of >90 dB with an operating temperature range of -55° to +85ºC.

The cables feature an outer diameter of 0.122" (3.10 mm) and offer a minimum bend radius of 0.40 in. Each cable is constructed with a silver-plated copper wire center conductor, flat silver-plated copper strip inner shield, aluminum polyimide foil middle shield and silver-plated copper braid outer shield, with an ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene) dielectric. The stainless steel SST connectors feature a gold-plated beryllium copper center pin, with a durability of 500 connections minimum.

Crystek's stocking distributors also support a large variety of other coaxial cable assemblies in a variety of configurations. For pricing details, contact Crystek Corporation.
