Next-Gen RF Test Probe for the PCB Assembly Market

Everett Charles Technologies (ECT) has recently introduced a high frequency test probe for the printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) test market. The CSP-30ES-013 radio frequency probe mates to standard SMA connectors and combines proven RF performance with ease-of-use to ensure accurate and reliable testing. The coaxial probe provides an instrumentation-quality interface for broadband RF measurements in excess of 20 GHz, providing a cost-efficient solution for high volume board testing. With the addition of the CSP-30ES-013 high performance radio frequency probe, ECT expands its proven high speed test interface portfolio.

The CSP-30ES-013 offers outstanding signal integrity and is capable of bandwidth measurements in excess of 20 GHz at -1 dB. With this probe, high frequency and functional tests can be performed in both high volume testing and engineering lab environments. Accurate small signal and RF power (50 Watts) measurements provide consistent and repeatable results. The CSP-30ES-013 ensures a consistent impedance of 50 Ohm.

The CSP-30ES-013 provides spring-loaded compliance for both the center signal probe and outer housing that provides ground contact. The articulated contact allows for targeting errors. It features a rugged design for inline applications and an easy to replace center conductor probe (SPL-30E-030). The knurl housing feature ensures easy and reliable press fit mounting.
