I came across some very thin coax cable, maybe 34awg,or even 36. Now i am wondering, foe which industry is it used and what connectors are available there. Any ideas?

    \$\begingroup\$ @crasic, SMA is absolutely huge compared to some of the stuff available for cell phones. Go have a look at Hirose's H.FL, X.FL, W.FL, etc. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks!! Hirose looks nice, although the cable is twice as thick. \$\endgroup\$

1.32mm is a common RF Cable size 50 Ohm up to 6Ghz used inside wifi devices. It commonly connects to PCB mount U-FL connector, also supports MMCX connectors and SMA. We're using this cable to connect MMCX connector on a wiFi card inside our wifi router to the SMA antenna connector on the outside, and to do the same thing from U-FL connector on another WiFi card.
