In Circuit RF Probing

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. Typical configuration is with an SMA female connector on one end and a straight cut semi-rigid cable on the opposite end. P1dB also offers trimmed semi rigid to expose a specific length of dielectric and center conductor.

P1dB Pigtails

P1dB has Pigtail diameters starting at .020 inches with a center conductor diameter of .004, suitable for probing a miniature 0201 RF pad. Popular Pigtail diameters include .020, .034 and .047. Most P1dB Pigtails are semi-rigid, but conformable coax cable options are also available from P1dB.

.047 diameter trimmed Pigtail

For customer's that require small diameter semi-rigid assemblies with connectors on both ends, P1dB stocks popular length SMA to SMA assemblies using either .034 or .047 diameter semi-rigid. Custom lengths and connector options are available, usually within 30 days.
