Kansas City, KS-- Interconnect Devices, Inc. (IDI), the world's leading manufacturer of spring contact probes, test sockets and custom interconnect solutions has released a supplementary catalog detailing its patented IDI Coaxial Probes. IDI pioneered the development of coaxial probe design in the 1980s.
For test engineers and product designers who are looking for solutions in high frequency or RF interconnection, this catalog features the industry's most extensive line-up of high reliability coaxial probes. IDI Coax Probes provide a low loss, controlled impedance signal path with reliable, connect/disconnect operations and speeds as fast as 13 GHz.
The new 28-page catalog provides illustrations, technical summaries and electrical properties for 14 off-the-shelf coaxial probes and 44 ready-to-build designs, including 10 newly introduced probes. All together, this comprehensive lineup offers the widest range of coaxial probe options, including:
o 50 Ohm, 75 Ohm and 29-Ohm Characteristic Impedance.
o -3dB insertion as high as 13 GHz and -1dB insertion loss as high as 8 GHz.
o Double-ended (compliant on both ends) or single-ended (compliant on one end). Single-ended probes have the option of pre-attached cable and a standard SMA or SMB connector. Upon request, other connector options may include SMZ, BNC, MCX and MMCX.
o A unique signal plunger surrounded by a uniform return path can be contacted onto the DUT via a spring-loaded shielding plunger while being electrically continuous without an impedance mismatch.
o Flanged contact barrel (optional on most models).
o Most coaxial probe assemblies have signal conductors that are often replaceable with a standard probe (consult factory for probe replacement options).
o Smooth-faced or serrated shielding plungers.
o Controlled impedance that yields high performance.
o Ring, quadrant or rectangular array footprint.
o Customizable power, ground and signal paths, including capabilities for very low resistance or high current contacts.
o Advanced mechanical docking and interconnection systems
