    Hello:

    Can anyone advise me on what type of DC connector/cable should be used with this component? In the spec sheet it is described as a female pin connector. Googling for a solution has proven difficult....thanks!

    The SMA's have a Teflon Dielectric, the 2.92mm connectors have air dielectric and are rated to 40 GHz or K band. Although the SMA and the 2.92 mm are interchangeable, the 2.92mm is considered a precision connector used in a lab. The 2.92mm connectors are available from Mouser electronics.

    As far as the DC connection goes, looks like standard solder turret and pin. Probably use a good quality shielded cable. Not sure what the best wire gauge would be.

    Thank you for your replies. The RF ports are for sure 2.92mm (K-connector), I will use a soldered connection for the DC input.
