Key features

  • Outstanding electrical performance
    • 4 GHz, 3.5 GHz and 1.5 GHz bandwidth models - accurate measurements for serial and digital applications
    • Excellent common mode rejection – reduces measurement errors in higher common environments
    • Low capacitive and resistive loading – maintains signal fidelity and reduces DC biasing interactions
  • Versatile mechanical performance
    • Compact probe head size for probing small geometry circuit elements
    • DUT attachment accessories enable connection to fine-spaced SMDs
    • Robust design for reliability
  • Easy to use
    • Connects directly to oscilloscopes with the TekVPI™ probe interface
    • Provides automatic units scaling and readout on the oscilloscopes display
    • Easy access to probe comp box controls or oscilloscope probe menu display for probe status, setup control, and diagnostic information
  • Integrated Scope/Probe system
    • Direct connection to and powered from the TekVPI™ oscilloscope interface (Connects directly to TekVPI scopes without the need of an external power supply, like many competitors require)
    • Single-button oscilloscope probe menu access
    • Setup and control from probe comp box or oscilloscope user interface
    • AutoZero - zeros out output offset
    • Remote GPIB/USB probe control through the oscilloscope
