Wire Types

Micro Coax

Micro coax cables are found in medical devices such as ultra-sound cables or RF ablation catheters. Whilst micro-coax cables that have center conductors around 40 AWG can be mechanically stripped, smaller gages can only be successfully stripped by laser. 

Laser stripping is regularly used to strip coax as small as 50 AWG. It is often convenient to ribbonize multiple coax together to aid the soldering process to a connector or PCB. In this case, laser stripping is the only solution – no matter the gage.
