High Speed Design Center and PacketMicro Announce Handheld TDR BladeProbes and Accessories for Signal Integrity Measurement
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — High Speed Design Center (HSDC) and PacketMicro announced today that they are offering a family of handheld TDR BladeProbes and an impedance standard substrate to the US market. The high-bandwidth, fixed-pitch probe design enables accurate and repeatable impedance measurements for high-speed PCB development and manufacturing.
“The BladeProbe offering provides the best combination of performance, accuracy and price,” said Ben Chia, HSDC President. “BladeProbe and impedance standard substrate help designers and manufacturing houses to correlate their impedance measurements. The impedance references of TCS10 substrate are accurate to within 0.15% of stated values. The TDR BladeProbe can be used as a handheld test tool or be mounted on a probe positioner for stable, hands-free measurement.”
TDR BladeProbe and calibration substrate are the first offering of a series of Signal Integrity development and manufacturing tools by HSDC. The TDR BladeProbe family includes 2-pin (in SS configuration) and 4-pin (in GSSG configuration) differential probes with 1.0 mm/0.8 mm/0.6 mm/0.4 mm pitches. The TCS10 substrate offers open/short/through and 50/85/100 ohm standards.
