RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Power Handling - RF Connectors/ Cables - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hi,

I am trying to learn the basics of power handling (average/ peak power calculations, dielectric withstanding voltage, corona voltage, etc) that I have to apply for RF connectors and cables.

Can anyone please direct to me some books or websites that can give me detailed information on the same?

Thanks in advance!

Sathya.

Greetings Saytha:

Johnson Components has a nice document that covers a lot of the ground you are looking for:

http://www.johnsoncomponents.com/webapp ... Fguide.pdf


Time Microwave has good info in the back of their cable catalog. This page has all the different sections available separately, because the entire catalog is 27 MB (look near the bottom of the page starting at around catalog page 63):

http://www.timesmicrowave.com/aerospace/cable_catalog/


That should get you started. Beyond that, check cable and connector vendor websites (https://www.rfcafe.com/vendors/vendor-links.htm), and even call to talk to applications engineers to get specific questions answered.
