Abstract or Summary
  • In Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC) or high frequency digital ICs, there is a demand to probe the internal nodes for testing. The ultra low capacitance RFIC probe presented in his work is a flexible tool for these applications. The probe utilizes the coupling between a tungsten needle and the inner conductor of a coaxial cable, forming a capacitor. The ultra low capacitance of the probe enables low probe loading on the circuit under test. With capacitive coupling, the probe output is the derivative of the input signal. Through the use of probe calibration and Fourier transforms, the probed signal can be recovered. Probe calibration develops a transfer function enabling recovery of time domain signals. By utilizing a simple mechanical design, input impedance is maximized and parasitic components are minimized.
