The Model 1100B Picoprobe sets new standards in microwave probing performance. Benefiting from coaxial techniques, which have inherent low loss and low dispersion characteristics.
With its individually spring loaded, Beryllium-Copper tips, the Model 1100B Picoprobe provides reliable low resistance contacts. This reliable low resistance contact is one of the keys to providing highly repeatable measurements. The Model 1100B Picoprobe also allows direct viewing of the probe tips for accurate positioning.
The Model 1100B Picoprobe bias T provides a direct low resistance DC path for supplying up to 100 mA to a device under test. The bias T also has special circuits which add loss at frequencies below the waveguide cut off frequency.
Typical uncalibrated performance of a Model 1100BGSG-25-BT while touching a 50 ohm load on our CS-15 calibration substrate.
Typical insertion loss of a Model 1100B-GSG-25-BT, which includes the integrated two inch section of WR-1.0 waveguide.
The probes also have a 3 hole mounting adaptor which will fit standard microwave probe stations.
A new smaller coax was developed for the Model 1100B utilizing a 25 micron Au plated BeCu center conductor. The ground contacts are formed from 15 micron thick BeCu and extend just 38 microns from the end of the fully shielded coax.
