H-Pin: A stamped pin probe that will forever change the way you do business.

A new approach to pin design, manufacturing, packaging, delivery and price that gives you a high performance contact pin at the lowest cost.

The H-Pin is a stamped spring probe with the mechanical, electrical and thermal performance of a spring probe, and the ease of use and high volume manufacturability of a stamped contact. The H-Pin serves applications without the typical compromises that are generally required when considering cost versus performance.

H-PIN Highlights

Excellent mechanical and electrical performance.

Utilizing high volume BeCu stamping technology, combined with a stainless steel spring for mechanical travel, the H-Pin has a working range up to 0.70 mm with a flat spring rate and can be utilized up to 15GHz with -1.0dB loss, carry up to 4 amps of current and withstand temperatures up to 200°C.
