Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.
Post subject: RF Hybrid Test Interface Posted: Tue Aug 16, 2005 12:01 pm
We are trying to locate a method to get us a durable, repeatable, non-destructive connection interface between a flat-pack RF hybrid and a 50-ohm analyzer input. In the end-use application, the device would be soldered in place, but that is not possible to do in a manufacturing test environment.

Design a test fixture which merely clamps the part down to a test board. Tou can use a a piece of plastic with alignment holes which slips over the part to align the pins onto the traces.

You might see if Cascade Microtech can help.
