HMC-ALH382 RF Pad Dimensions

Hello,

I see in the datasheet for the HMC-ALH382 LNA that the bond pad width and gap are both 100 um (page 4), giving an effective pitch of 200 um. Would I be able to measure this device using 150 um GSG probes?

Thanks,

BT

    Hi BT,

    I don't recommend using 150um probes on 200um pads especially when measuring millimeter wave products.  The most accurate and reliable measurements will be with the probes centered on the die bond pads.
