n.
A cable consisting of a conducting outer metal tube enclosing and insulated from a central conducting core, used primarily for the transmission of high-frequency signals. Also called coaxial line.

coaxial cable

n
(Electronics) a cable consisting of an inner insulated core of stranded or solid wire surrounded by an outer insulated flexible wire braid, used esp as a transmission line for radio-frequency signals. Often shortened to: coax

As the rapid application of 5G to areas from internet of things (IoT) to wireless communications across the world fuels demand for RF coaxial cables (especially for fine/ultrafine products), global RF coaxial cable market has been ballooning, being expectedly worth USD7,024 million in 2019, a year-on-year increase of 7.9%.
The Schleuniger CoaxStrip 6480 semi-automatic stripping machine processes coaxial cables with an outer diameter of 0.047 to 0.472 inches (1.2-12 mm).
The HelEOS 10G Ethernet overlay system is a modem and switch technology that combines point-to-point Ethernet connections over existing coaxial cables into an Ethernet overlay system on the HFC network.
Leaky coaxial cables have found many useful applications in communication systems both as feeders and as transmitting antennas such as Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) systems, for high speed railway, automated highway, wireless LAN retrieving, location of train, and underground conveyance [1].
High demand for coaxial cables, owing to high investment in broadcasting and broadband sectors so as to enhance communication infrastructure, is also expected to serve as a driver to the market over the next six years.
Coaxial cables can transport signals up to 2400 MHz with acceptable cable attenuation within in-building cable lengths.
The dual RF coaxial cable experiment, performed from March 4-12, 2012, measures the travel time difference of two RF signals propagating through dual coaxial cables [5].
The LPDA array has been designed using CST Microwave Studio 2012, a general purpose software for the 3D electromagnetic simulation of microwave components, and the designed antenna has been manufactured with the mirror coaxial cable. Since printed LPDAs at operating frequencies up to the Ku Band are very small, the described feeding technique using coaxial cables presents some realization difficulties, and the soldering of both the feeding and the mirror coaxial cables over the antenna layout could be tricky, and must be adequately implemented, since a careless realization will compromise the antenna matching and behavior.
"This is especially important across multiple platforms such as personal electronics, medical instruments and HDMI cables for computers and televisions." In testing, DuPont says, micro coaxial cables using FFR 880 had a conductor size of 28 AWG or smaller and a wall thickness of 0.002 inch or greater, with void content up to 55%; the material is melt-processable and provides similar electrical performance to cables made with expanded PTFE tape.
Meanwhile, there are many facilities around the world that already have infrastructure in place with analog SD cameras and coaxial cables laid and installed, such as office buildings, commercial facilities, financial institutions, and seaports.
