Pasternack has expanded their line of RF coaxial probes into the 40 GHz operating frequency range for use in microwave components, high speed communications and networking.

Pasternack’s extended line of coaxial RF probes now includes four models that deliver 10 dB maximum return loss over the broad frequency range of DC to 40 GHz. These probes are offered in GS and GSG configurations with a pitch of 800 or 1500 microns and a 2.92 mm interface. They are gold-plated and have compliant pogo pin contacts that allow for a wide range of probing angles. These RF coaxial probes can be used by hand, with or without a probe positioner, and can be cable mounted or mounted with Pasternack’s multi-axis probe positioner. They are ideal for signal integrity measurement, chip evaluation, coplanar waveguide, Gigabit SERDES, substrate characterization and test fixture applications.

“We are excited to offer this unique extension of our already successful line of RF probes. The extended 40 GHz frequency range of these GS and GSG probes will help testers cover a whole new range of applications, including 28 Gbps data channels,” said Dan Birch, product manager.

Pasternack’s new expanded line of coaxial RF probes are in stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity.
