Samtec announces a high-performance test assembly with performance up to 70 GHz (BE70A Series, Bulls Eye®). It uses a single block design for ganged cabling and compression mount to the PCB, making it easier to install and eliminates soldering. The block is dual row, up to 16 contacts, and available for both microstrip and stripline transmission types. The proprietary cable design offers grounding (360˚ grounding with stripline) around a spring-loaded signal contact, and provides 1.85 mm connection to instrumentation.
As with all Samtec Bulls Eye® assemblies, the high-density design enables smaller evaluation boards and shorter trace lengths. Custom solutions are also available. Visit samtec.com/BullsEye for complete product family details.
