085 Size Family

The .085" size cable is often used where tight routing or high cable density is encountered.  Most assembly lengths are short to minimize loss. The cable matches well when terminated with SMA, 2.4mm 2.9mm and other sub-miniature connectors. Large connectors such as Type N or TNC should be avoided due to cable center conductor to connector pin diameter mis-matches.  Using a thick wall design, an SMA plug will perform well up to 26 GHz.
