Circuit board RF test with Pigtail assemblies

RF product updates from P1dB Circuit board RF test with Pigtail assemblies A good method for probing an RF circuit is to use small diameter semi-rigid cables, commonly referred to as Pigtails, to inject an input signal or sample an output signal. A typical configuration is with an SMA female connector on one end and read more »

P1dB’s RF Pigtail cables

P1dB’s Pigtail cable assemblies, also called Test Probes, are an excellent tool for RF in-circuit test. Test a circuit by soldering a small diameter coax cable (RF pigtail) onto a PCB as a test probe and inject an input signal or sample an output signal. Once tested, the soldered RF Pigtail test probe is easily read more »

Pigtail Connectors

As part of the design process, it is necessary to test a component’s performance to compare it to an RF circuit simulation. The only way to perform in-circuit tests is by designing in test points or by using RF coaxial pigtails. The Pigtail method is accomplished by soldering a connector at one end of a read more »
