40-GHz Coaxial RF Probes Feature Pogo Pin Design

Pasternack expands its line of RF coaxial probes into the 40-GHz operating frequency range for use in microwave components, high-speed communications, and networking. The coaxial RF probe line now includes four models that deliver 10-dB maximum return loss over a frequency range of DC to 40 GHz. Offered in GS and GSG configurations with a pitch of 800 or 1500 microns and a 2.92-mm interface, the components are gold-plated and have compliant pogo pin contacts that allow for a wide range of probing angles.


These RF coaxial probes can be used by hand, with or without a probe positioner, and can be cable mounted or mounted with Pasternack's multi-axis probe positioner. They are viable for signal integrity measurement, chip evaluation, coplanar waveguide, Gigabit SERDES, substrate characterization, and test fixture applications. For more details and specs, datasheets are available. For further inquiries, call Pasternack at 949-261-1920.
