Pasternack Ultraminiature Cable Assemblies
Pasternack ultraminiature cable assemblies provide performance up to 6GHz with micro-coax snap-on connectors.
Pasternack introduced new lines of ultraminiature UMCX, WMCX, and HMCX32 coaxial cable assemblies. These low-profile, flexible micro-coax jumper cables offer operation from DC to 6GHz and are ideal for wireless applications including Wi-Fi, Wireless LAN, Bluetooth, ZigBee, LTE, mini-PCI, mobile antenna/GPS/radio systems, PDA/PCS/cellular handset applications, and other wireless communications systems. These cables are commonly used to connect an external antenna to a mini PCB.
The new RF cable assemblies from Pasternack include 40 unique configurations with multiple coax options including 0.81mm, 1.13mm, 1.37mm, RG178, and double-shielded RG178 (RG178-DS). Both in-series and between-series cables are available in this release and the miniature UMCX, WMCX, and HMCX32 snap-on connectors have mated connection heights ranging from 1.2mm to 2.5mm. Pasternack’s new UMCX and WMCX cable jumpers are compatible with Hirose U.FL and W.FL connectors respectively.
Ultraminiature UMCX, WMCX, and HMCX32 cable assemblies from Pasternack are offered in standard lengths from stock while custom lengths and special configurations are available upon request. Custom cables can be assembled from the UMCX 2.5 series using RG178 coax with more than a hundred compatible connector options that can be selected from Pasternack’s catalog of coaxial connectors. Each of the new cable assemblies in this offering is 100% RF- and continuity-tested prior to shipment.
“Pasternack is continually expanding its industry-leading offering of coaxial cable assemblies, and the addition of these new ultraminiature cables gives design engineers an even greater variety of popular configurations to choose from,” said Steve Ellis, interconnect product manager at Pasternack. “The low-profile connectors on these cables are perfect for connecting to the miniature circuit boards found in today’s wireless equipment.”
