RF Coaxial Probes Provide GSG/GS Configuration To 20 GHz

Fairview Microwave unveils what it calls an exclusive line of coaxial RF probes and a probe positioner, suitable for use with chip evaluations, signal integrity measurements, coplanar waveguide, substrate characterization, gigabit SERDES, and test fixture applications. The offering is made-up of four, exclusive design, coaxial RF probes and one RF PCB probe positioner.


The probes provide return losses better than 10 dB and a maximum operating frequency of 20 GHz. They have a 3.5-mm female interface, a pitch of 800 or 1,500 micron, can be cable-mounted, feature gold-plated contacts, and can be used by hand, with or without a probe positioner. Compliant coaxial GSG (or GS) pogo pins allow for a broad range of probing angles.

New VNA technologies enable mmWave broadband testing to 220 GHz, helping researchers and engineers to overcome test challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

Application development in the mmWave frequencies is growing. Broadband testing over hundreds of GHz of bandwidth is subject to repeatability/accuracy deficits, and engineers demand solutions to help overcome challenges and simplify mmWave testing.


The RF PCB probe positioner can hold coaxial probes, has articulated joints and delivers multi-axis positioner control. This positioner also boasts a magnetic mounting plate with on-off positioner switch. These new products are ideal for use in microwave components, high-speed communications and networking.
