Minimizing PiM generation from RF cables and connectors Download White Paper 2Mo

Understanding mechanical tolerances, coaxial design details and connector materials used in cable assemblies helps produce communications equipment with the lowest levels of passive intermodulation (PIM).


Communications system interference can come in many forms, but one of the most difficult to defeat is passive intermodulation (PiM) distortion. Unlike noise, which tends

to cover broad bandwidths and is easily filtered, PiM results in discrete signals that fall within the operating bandwidth of a wireless communications receiver, capable of blocking desired signals. at sufficiently high magnitudes, PiM distortion can desensitize a communications receiver, resulting in poor quality of calls in a cellular system or even dropped calls.

Reliable communications system performance depends on minimizing PiM and choosing the right cable assemblies can go a long way towards helping to shave PiM distortion.

This month, Oscium is giving away three of its iMSO-204L dual analogue iOS oscilloscopes, worth USD400 each. Designed with native Lightning compatibility, the iMSO-204L transforms the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch into an ultra-portable, two-channel oscilloscope.

Since Apple changed its connector, Oscium has been working to bring native compatibility to its customers. The third generation of handheld engineering tools from Oscium, the iMSO-204L is the solution to the connector change, featuring two analogue and four digital channels, capable of 50 MSPS at a 5MHz bandwidth, and with a resolution varying from 200ns/div to 10s/div.
