Fairview Microwave has recently expanded its line of RF coaxial probes into the 40 GHz frequency range for use in high-speed communications, microwave components and networking applications.
The expanded line now includes four models that deliver 10 dB maximum return loss over a broad frequency range of DC-40 GHz. These new RF probes are offered in GS and GSG configurations with a pitch of 800 or 1500 microns and a 2.92mm interface; they are gold-plated and feature compliant pogo pin contacts that allow for a wide range of probing angles.
They can be used by hand, with or without a probe positioner, and can be cable mounted or mounted with Fairview’s multi-axis probe positioner. They are ideal for signal integrity measurement, coplanar waveguide, chip evaluation, substrate characterisation, Gigabit SERDES and test fixture applications.
