We have built these using equal length sections of semi rigid coax with sma's at one end. The semi rigid copper outer shield is soldered together approx. every 3 ". Prepare the ends by careful cutting of the shield with an exacto knife, than solder the center conductors to the launch point vias or pads. Tektronix shipped some of these to us as accessories when we bought their IPA-510 a few years ago. I might be able to find a tek part number but someone like Micro-Coax could make some for you or find an off the shelf semi rigid assembly with sma's on both ends and then just cut it in half. Be carful not to bend it too much and kink it. These can also make nice 50 Ohm 10x passive probes with the addition of a series 450 resistor at the end.

found good differential TDR probes which allow you to measure very closely
spaced points on pc boards or cables?
Thanks and regards,
