Fairview Microwave Introduces a New Line of RF Coaxial Probes and a Probe Positioner

Fairview Microwave has introduced a new line of coaxial RF probes and a probe positioner. These new products are ideal for chip evaluations, signal integrity measurements, coplanar waveguide, substrate characterization, gigabit SERDES and test fixture applications.

The new product line from Fairview is made-up of four coaxial RF probes and one RF PCB probe positioner. The RF coaxial probes provide a return loss of better than 10 dB and a maximum operating frequency of 20 GHz. The probes have a 3.5 mm female interface, a pitch of 800 or 1500 micron and can be cable-mounted. They 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 new 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.

The new coaxial RF GSG (or GS) probes and positioner are in stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity.
