Expanded line of coaxial RF probes to 40 GHz

Louise Smyth

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.
