• About F Series

Introduction

F connectors were designed as a low cost method of coupling coaxial cables and equipment used in TV, MTV, and satellite communication applications. They have threaded coupling interfaces and the plug utilizes the center contacts of the cable rather than a separately applied pin. They are designed for low frequency transmissions (typically video) up to 2GHz.
