Abstract : Twinaxial cable is relatively new in the realm of high frequency cable types and has not yet reached the level of standardization that has been reached by coaxial cable. There is a definite need for a standard as a basis for the design of a special twinaxial cable for high frequency and/or pulse data transmission. While twinaxial cables (or shielded twisted pairs as they are also known) have existed for some time their application has largely been limited to relatively low frequencies. The special cable suggested here is designed specifically for high frequency and/or pulse data transmission. The prime difference between this special cable and any previous twinaxial cable is its impedance values. A twinaxial cable has associated with it two impedances that are of interest to us. The first is the differential mode impedance which is normally defined in a twinaxial cable.
