Amphenol RF introduces flexible 2.92 mm cable assemblies

Pre-configured 2.92 mm cable assemblies have been introduced by Amphenol RF. They are designed on flexible 0.85 inch conformable cable and available in the straight plug (male) to straight plug (male) configuration in various standard lengths from six inches to one meter. The durable 2.92mm assembly is intended for use in demanding applications requiring high frequency transmission and provide high mechanical stability and excellent repeatability. Suitable industry sectors are military and aerospace, 5G wireless and instrumentation.

The 2.92mm cable assembly is engineered with a robust RF interconnect similar to the SMA interface with a smaller internal body diameter and air dielectric to support a higher frequency range up to 40GHz. The gold‐plated, stainless steel connectors are intermateable with SMA and 3.5mm connectors. The male pin is shorter than that of an SMA or 3.5mm connector, to ensure that the outer contacts of the male and female connectors engage before the pin and female receptacle do. This ensures that the pin and socket will not see excessive wear and mating stress by misalignment with an SMA or 3.5mm connector, explained Amphenol RF.

The flexible cable assembly allows for a tight bend radius while providing low VSWR (voltage standing wave ratio) and excellent return and insertion loss. In addition, said Amphenol RF, the assembly offers “excellent power handling capability” whereby it can be specified for communication receivers and transmitters, satellite communication equipment (SATCOM), laboratory testing and microwave applications.

Amphenol RF is a manufacturer of coaxial connectors for use in radio frequency (RF), microwave, and data transmission system applications. Headquartered in Danbury, Connecticut, USA, Amphenol RF has global sales, marketing and manufacturing locations in North America, Asia and Europe. 

Standard products include RF connectors, coaxial adapters and RF cable assemblies. 

Custom engineered products include multi‐port ganged interconnect, blind mate and hybrid mixed‐signal solutions.
