Crystek has introduced a line of 26.5 GHz hand formable coaxial cable assemblies, a new addition to its low-loss RF coaxial cables. Designed to operate from DC to 26.5 GHz, the hand-formable CCSMA26.5-MM-086 cable assemblies are ideally suited for jumpers, instrumentation and high-frequency interconnects. The 50-Ohm cables provide an attenuation value of 1.40 dB/ft. at 26.5 GHz, and offer shielding effectiveness of greater than 100 dB with an operating temperature range of -40º to +85ºC. Electrically matched pairs are also available.

Crystek’s CCSMA26.5-MM-086 cables feature an outside cable diameter of 0.086” and offer a minimum bend radius of 0.125 in. (single bend) and 0.99 in. (multiple bend). Available from stock in lengths from three to 12 inches (custom sizing available), each cable is constructed of a silver-plated copper wire center conductor, tin-soaked copper outer braid and PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) dielectric. The high-frequency stainless steel SMA connectors feature a gold-plated brass center pin.
