Spring Probe for RF Signal Testing on PCBAs

ETC CSP 30ES19 May 2017 - Everett Charles Technologies (ECT) launched a high frequency test probe for the 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 CSP-30ES-013 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.

The CSP-30ES-013 offers outstanding signal integrity and is capable of bandwidth measurements in excess of 20 GHz @ -1dB. With the CSP-30ES-013 RF 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. The CSP-30ES-013 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.

Tony DeRosa, Senior Product Manager, confirms: “The CSP-30ES-013 probe meets the need for cost effective, high performance functional testing at high speed. Our engineers designed this probe to mate with SMA connectors and to provide excellent performance for our board test customers in both engineering characterization and high volume applications. It leverages Xcerra’s extensive knowledge in providing solutions for signal integrity sensitive applications, and we have over 15 years experience simulating complex test structures including probes, PCBA’s and launches. We build and test many structures to validate our products and corresponding models.”
