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.
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.
