PacketMicro Announces Rugged Gigahertz Probe for RF and Power Integrity Testing

Strong RF probe for direct probing on circuit components or uneven surfaces.

The rugged 12-GHz RF probe and calibration substrate allow engineers to directly probe on circuit components with probe-tip calibration for accurate, repetitive measurements.

    SANTA CLARA, CA, January 28, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- PacketMicro announces the new additions of RF probe and calibration substrate to its HSProbeTM product family for printed-circuit board testing. Designed by engineers for engineers, the 12-GHz probe comprises rugged BeCu probe tips, making it perfect for RF and power-integrity testing that requires direct probing on top of circuit components or test pads on an uneven surface.

"Constant shrinking size of circuit components makes soldering semi-rigid RF cables to test gigahertz circuits impractical," said Richard Zai, PacketMicro CTO. "The rugged RF probe and calibration substrate allow engineers to perform probe-tip calibration for accurate and repetitive RF measurements."

HSProbeTM family is specifically designed for bench-top testing of large PCBs. The RF probe comes in five different probe pitches, and the calibration substrate (TCS50) provides the SOLT standards for probe-tip calibration. Together, the RF probes (RP-GR-1215 series), PCB holder (VPH100 series) and Flex Positioner (TP60) are ideal for S-Parameter and TDR measurements required in RF, power-integrity, and signal-integrity measurements. Please stop by Booth#742 at DesignCon 2014 held at Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, California on January 29 - 30, 2014, for product demonstration.
