Q: What is the performance benefit of high impedance microcoaxials versus low impedance microcoaxials?
A: High impedance (low capacitance) micro-coax is excellent for high-frequency applications that require very high resolution signals with reduced attenuation. Low capacitance products will come at a slight cost premium over the high capacitance counterparts given the added complexity of making these products and the exacting precision and materials needed to decrease/control the capacitance. The low impedance (high capacitance) product is excellent for larger volumes of data at lower speeds that carry more power and do not require ultra-fine sensitivity of the devices they are attached to.
