ECT Launches New Probe for High Performance RF Signal Testing of PCBAs

The ECT CSP-30TS-011 has been designed to perfectly mate with PCBA test pads and vias

Everett Charles Technologies (ECT) recently added the CSP-30TS-011 to its industry-proven portfolio of high frequency probes for the PCBA test market. This next generation coaxial probe provides instrumentation-quality interface for broadband RF measurements exceeding 20GHz, delivering superior performance while seamlessly mating with pads, vias, and other board features. The CSP-30TS-011 RF probe combines several innovative features to provide a truly reliable and cost-effective testing solution.

The CSP-30TS-011 is compatible with other ECT ICT/FT probes and features an open architecture format that can be configured with up to 4 easy-to-replace ground probes.  With an insertion loss (S21) in excess of 20 GHz @ -1dB and a consistent impedance of 50 Ohm, the CSP-30TS-011 offers outstanding signal integrity and measurement capability. The CSP-30TS-011 provides spring-loaded compliance for both the center signal probe and the outer ground probes, while the knurl housing feature allows for easy and reliable press fit mounting.

Tony DeRosa, Senior Product Manager, explains: “We absolutely see the need for reliable, high performance and cost-efficient RF probe solutions in the PCBA test market. We launched this new probe to support our customers in high speed, high volume testing as well as in engineering labs.”
