Pasternack Expands its Line of Custom Low-PIM Coaxial Cable Assemblies


Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has expanded its offering of low-PIM coaxial cable assemblies to offer customers even more connector options to address DAS, wireless infrastructure, multi-carrier communication systems, WISP, small cell installations and PIM testing applications.

Pasternack’s line of low-PIM coaxial cable assemblies now consists of 160 standard configurations that boast PIM levels of < -160 dBc. These high-performance, low-PIM cable assemblies are constructed with flexible, lightweight, UL910, plenum-rated, SPP-250-LLPL, RF coaxial cable which can operate in temperatures from -55°C to +125°C. These high-quality cables deliver low insertion loss and excellent VSWR, are 100% RF and PIM tested and ship with the PIM test results marked on the cables.

This latest release adds both SMA and QMA-style connectors to the available options in this series. In addition to standard straight SMA and QMA connectors, right-angle versions are also offered.

“We are excited to be expanding our options for the low-PIM cable series. By offering our customers even more choices, we can now address even more applications that require custom low-PIM cables shipped the same day with test reports,” said Steve Ellis, Product Manager.

Pasternack will be adding even more connector and cable options to its standard low-PIM cable assembly line in the coming months. In addition to the standard configurations, Pasternack ships fully tested custom configurations same-day.
