Coaxial RF probes and articulated positioner from Pasternack.

Pasternack announces coaxial RF probes and articulated positioner


  • Pasternack has launched a range of coaxial RF probes covering frequencies up to 20 GHz and an articulated system for their positioning.
  • These products are used for signal integrity verification, chip evaluation, coplanar waveguide, circuit debugging and test interfaces.

Pasternack’s new product line consists of four coaxial RF probes and one RF PCB probe positioner. The RF coaxial probes deliver frequency performance up to 20 GHz and return loss better than 10 dB.

They feature gold-plated contacts and compliant coaxial GSG (or GS) pogo pins. These probes have a pitch of 800 and 1500 micron, a 3.5mm female interface and can be cable mounted.

They can be used by hand, with or without a probe positioner and the pogo pin design allows for a wide range of probing angles.

The RF PCB probe positioner holds coaxial probes and features a magnetic mounting plate with on-off positioner switch. This positioner also has articulated joints and delivers multi-axis positioner control.
