Male and female options along with narrow body and bulkhead feed-through. Unique clamping mechanism accommodates board thickness up to .300” (7.62 mm). Robust, reusable, and repairable. Multiple launch configurations provide the best possible match to circuit layout. Works on microstrip and grounded coplanar waveguide (GCPW) designs. Signal-layer microstrip and GCPW test boards available. Soldering is optional.
