Coaxial Cable Assemblies and RF Components

Cable Assemblies

Coaxial cable is used as a transmission line for radio frequency signals. Its applications include feedlines connecting radio transmitters and receivers to their antennas, computer network (Internet) connections, digital audio ( S/PDIF), and distributing cable television signals.

Adapters

A high quality coaxial connector makes a lasting, consistent connection. Coaxial connectors are components attached to the ends of a coax cable—they make it possible to connect to other devices.

Terminations

Electrical termination is the practice of ending a transmission line with a device that matches the characteristic impedance of the line. This is intended to prevent signals from reflecting off the end of the transmission line.

Amplifiers

Electronic amplifier or (informally) amp is an electronic device that can increase the power of a signal (a time-varying voltage or current).
