RF Cable Manufacturers

Since our company was founded over two decades ago at the time of writing, our engineers at Technical Cable Applications have built a wide variety of different styles of cable assemblies. One of the largest subsets of what we build regularly is RF cable assemblies for data transmission. There is a wide variety of connectors, materials and end purposes that fall under the umbrella of, or are sometimes incorrectly called “RF cable assemblies” but most commonly, this term is referring to a coaxial RF connector and cable or cables carrying data signals. Coax cables are typically point to point assemblies designed to carry a radio frequency signal from one point to another. This could be an SMA male to BNC female connection, or a male to BNC male connection for example but there are so many more varieties of RF cable assemblies we work with every year. No matter the specifics of which RF connector styles you need and the exact configuration the final assembly needs to have, our manufacturing team and engineers can produce your off-the-shelf RF coaxial cable or RF cable assembly for your specific needs. Contact us today!



There are a wide variety of connector options and sizes available for RF cable assemblies. The connectors are typically differentiated into three different types, based on size – Standard, Miniature, and Micro. At TCA, we are capable of working with most common connector styles within these three sizes. Standard sizes we’ve built RF cable assemblies with for thousands of orders have included BNC, F-Type, N-Type and TNC, among others. Miniature styles we’ve worked with have included MCX, Mini-BNC, SMA, and many others. Most commonly, among the Micro size, we’ve utilized or integrated MMCX into our customers’ coax cable orders.

However, we’re seeing a large influx of Micro styles requested by customers, as their cable products have become smaller and lack of space is a concern that makes old styles of coaxial cables, connectors and adapters obsolete in many instances. We have adapted to this by making sure we have the tools and connectors needed for testing and manufacturing Micro coaxial styles as best we can at all times so that we can fulfill orders as quickly as possible and keep up with the increasing need to save space that our customers are encountering. We are proud to have continued innovating and growing our capabilities for modern cable needs since our founding in 2002, and can promise you that we will never be behind the curve of innovation or what’s standard for your industry, as we are always researching and developing new ways to fulfill the needs of our customers across dozens of different fields.

Along with the cable assembly connectors and adapters being used in your typical assembly, there are several different types of coaxial bulk cable. TCA has worked with a wide variety of coax cable types, and our capabilities expand each year in an effort to remain on the cutting edge of cable assembly technology. Among our capabilities is the ability to work with standard cable types such as RG-6, RG-8, RG-58, RG-59, RG-142, RG-174, RG-179, RG-223, RG-316, and countless others. At Technical Cable Applications, we are also capable of producing custom twinaxial, triaxial, semi-rigid, and even micro-coaxial cable assemblies. We also ensure that the Ohm cable and Ohm coax requirements for our customers are met, and that information loss and noise interference are minimized as much as possible. Our investment into high-end coax cable processing equipment, such as our Schleuniger 5300 crimping machine, affords us the capability to process a wide range of different sizes, all the way down to 42awg! We did this so that we could avoid having to outsource the most precise jobs to other companies, and save our customers time and money while continuing to make excellent cable solutions for them.

While the majority of RF cable assemblies are related to coaxial connectors as we’ve mentioned, there are other types of connectors used in their assembly as well depending on the application and industry involved. In recent years, we’ve seen an increasing number of requests for micro coaxial cable assemblies. Micro coaxial cable assemblies are commonly used in the medical, aviation, automotive and tech industries, and more increasingly being used by manufacturers of consumer devices that need to keep up with increasing data transmission speed requirements. These cable assemblies are typically required where flexibility, compactness, high quality and high speed data transmission is required. Working hand in hand with our customers, our capabilities to work with micro-coaxial assemblies has continued to expand over the years. Our capabilities include the ability to terminate directly to some micro-coaxial connectors, or even directly to the customer PCB.

Based in Auburn, WA in King County, we have been in operation since 2002 at our facility. We have expanded our facility’s real estate substantially over the past 20 years and improved our custom cable manufacturing capabilities many times over since then, and continued to hire excellent staff and treat them with great benefits and work-life balance. We have also been proud to partner with so many excellent manufacturers and companies across the States, and manufacture wires, cables, assemblies and harnesses that support their endeavors across the many industries they serve.

We are also proud to have formed strong partnerships with two manufacturing facilities in Mexico recently that have helped us shorten lead times and offer highly competitive pricing to our customers. These nearshore partnerships have been extremely beneficial with helping avoid tariffs, offer even more flexibility with custom orders thanks to lower MOQ requirements, and maintain and often improve our quality control. We are able to audit all items manufactured at these facilities before they ship to our Washington location, then complete final steps here in our United States facility and do a second audit before shipping to the customer. If you’re looking to reduce your reliance on off shore manufacturing or part sourcing, partnering with Technical Cable Applications is a great way to start!
