Technical Updates:RF Coaxial Cables Connectors Types.
Coaxial cable is used as a transmission line for radio frequency signals. Common applications of coaxial cable include video and CATV distribution, RF and microwave transmission, and computer and instrumentation data connections. Coaxial cable design choices affect physical size, frequency performance, attenuation, power handling capabilities, flexibility, strength, and cost The ends of coaxial cables usually terminate with connectors. Coaxial connectors are designed to maintain a coaxial form across the connection and have the same impedance.
The most common impedances that are widely used are 50 ohms, and 75 ohms, although other impedances are available for specific applications. The 50 ohm cables are widely used for industrial and commercial two-way radio frequency applications (including radio, and telecommunications), although 75 ohms is commonly used for broadcast television and radio.
