Maybe saying “Cable Assembly of your dreams” is a little silly, but when you think about everything you go through to get the right cable, it can be a huge pain in the neck. You go to a website and they have the cable type you are looking for, but available in only half the length you want. So you buy a coupler and two cables. Instead of purchasing one item, you now have 3, which is something else you didn’t want to do.
What if you go to the website and they don’t have the cable you are looking for at all and you need to buy various adapters? All you are doing is affecting the performance of an overpriced and shoddily made cable!
Thankfully, you can now build your own cable assembly with Coaxicom! The cable assembly available on the Coaxicom site is the most advanced on the internet! Get the exact cable you want, in the length you want with the connectors you want. With a custom made cable assembly, there will no longer be testing multiple cables, adapting, coupling or jumping through various hoops like you may have in the past!
Coaxial Components Corp. (Coaxicom) – STUART, FLORIDA – There is little doubt that electrical components in today’s high-tech industries are getting smaller and smaller. Retrofitting RF connectors to meet increasing frequency requirements often presents a challenge utilizing the standard SMA series. As a result of the increased demand for better electrical performance, Coaxicom employed design innovation to resolve the conflict between size and frequency.
Typical mitred Right-angle SMA cable connectors cause significant reduction of electrical performance in cable assemblies, particularly at higher frequencies. Coaxicom’s Right-Angle Bend (RAB) Assembly provides an alternative to the standard right angle SMA coaxial connector with a low-profile device, delivering increased electrical performance at higher frequencies. The 3221-1-L series of pre-bent right angle assemblies use the center conductor of .141″ semi-rigid cable as the contact. “L” represents the overall length of the RAB. This fact, combined with Coaxicom’s ultra-short SMA male, provides the same or a smaller profile than a right-angle connector, but without the performance penalty.
Typical VSWR of these assemblies is 1.10 to 18 GHz, while a similar assembly using a conventional right angle connector is typically 1.30. An SMA male to SMA male swept radius cable assembly has a typical VSWR of 1.17 at 18GHz. User specified lengths to 60” are available. RAB assemblies also provide a cost-effective and dependable alternate to radius swept adapters. RAB assemblies and adapters using other connectors and cables are also available.
Coaxial Components Corp is a Florida-based manufacturer and supplier of RF Connectors, attenuators, terminations, adapters and cable assemblies. The company serves customers in the telecommunications, aerospace, industrial, energy, transportation and military sectors. All Coaxicom connectors conform to MIL-PRF-39012 and interface dimensions per MIL-STD-348 or industry standards.

Also known as RF dummy loads or terminators, RF Coaxial Terminations are passive 1-port interconnect resistive power devices, that properly terminates the output port of a device under test (DUT) or one end of an RF test cable. These devices can be used in the field, to possibly terminate unused ports (such as multiport RF coaxial switches or directional couplers. They are also used in various factory or laboratory Test & Measurement applications.
Coaxicom offers a wide variety of RF Coaxial Terminations, including “hard to find” series like SSMA’s. Coaxicom terminations provide excellent performance at a reasonable price.
Our RF Coaxial Terminations are available in 2.4mm, 2.92mm, 7/16 DIN, BNC, C, N, QMA, SMA, SSMA, SSMB, SSMC, SMB, SMC, SMP and TNC connector types (specials available upon request). Categories include standard and feed-thru with power ratings from 0.25 to 150 watts.
Standard impedances are 50 & 75 Ohm with frequency ranges from DC to 40 GHz. Coaxicom’s RF/microwave terminations are ROHS and REACH compliant.
Our ISO 9001:2008 / AS9100C registered manufacturing facility ships same day from a broad inventory of microwave and RF products. Exceptional customer service and technical support are on hand to support our customers for all Coaxicom products. email@example.com, 866-COAXICOM (866-262-9426)
All over the world, the predominant impedance for RF/microwave coaxial transmission lines and connectors is 50 Ω. Here is why….
The theoretical impedance for minimum attenuation is 77.5 Ω while the maximum power transfer is 30 Ω. The average of these two impedances is 53.75 Ω (rounded off to 50 Ω). Therefore, 50 Ω is a compromise between the minimum attenuation and maximum power transfer in a coaxial transmission line, and that is why it was selected. There are connectors available with other impedances, the next most popular impedance being 75 Ω (approximate minimum attenuation performance) that is in fairly wide use internationally and in long line communication systems.
Anyone who is purchasing coaxial connectors needs to know exactly which connectors will work with their applications before making a purchase. Coaxicom maintains a cross-reference guide that is designed to ensure that customers are building a connector that will work for them.
How the Cross-Reference Guide Works
Simply choose a competitor name from the pull-down menu, then type in the competitor part number to get a COAXICOM Cross-Reference.
Coaxicom offers a link to the part and the catalog to ensure that customers can review their selection. Detailed information about each part is included in the catalog with pictures to prevent customers from purchasing incompatible connectors.

The gender of connectors is selected according to rigid rules, to enforce a sense of one-way directionality (e.g. a flow of power from one device to another). This gender distinction is implemented to enhance safety or ensure proper functionality by preventing unsafe or non-functional configurations from being set up.
Coaxicom Contact Pin
“Did you know” the easiest way to identify the gender of any RF connector is to look at the contact (center-pin). If it is a probe (right end of pic) it is a male (plug). If it is a slotted socket it is a female (jack).
This is the easiest way to identify the< MCX, MMCX, SMC, SSMC, SMB, SSMB, CMS and SCMS series of connectors.
