Tektronix TPP0500B Passive Probe Product Description

The TPP1000, TPP0500B, TPP0502 and TPP0250 models are high-bandwidth, general-purpose probes from Tektronix that offer breakthrough specifications previously unrealized in this product class. Designed for use with Tektronix MDO3000, MDO4000, MSO/DPO5000, and 5 Series MSO Series oscilloscopes, these probes provide up to 1 GHz of analog bandwidth with less than 3.9 pF of capacitive loading.

Key performance specs

  • 1 GHz, 500 MHz and 250 MHz probe bandwidth models
  • <4 pF input capacitance
  • 10X and 2X attenuation factor
  • 300 V CAT II input voltage
  • Designed for use with the MDO3000, MDO4000, MSO/DPO5000, and 5 Series MSO Series oscilloscopes

Key features

  • Compact probe head for probing small-geometry circuit elements
  • Small probe body for enhanced visibility to the device-under-test
  • Rigid tip for secure device-under-test connectivity
  • Small MMCX replaceable Tip Cartridge for secure hands-free connectivity (TPP1000 only)
  • 0.1" (2.54 mm) and 0.062" (1.57 mm) Square Pin Adapters attach to MMCX tip cartridge for easy hands-free connection to square pin headers and across 0402 components (TPP1000 only)
  • Replaceable probe tip cartridges
  • Large accessory set for versatile connectivity


  • Integrated oscilloscope and probe measurement system provides intelligent communication that automatically scales and adjusts units on the oscilloscope display to match the probe attenuation
  • Built-in AC compensation optimizes signal path across the entire frequency range


  • Low-power devices
  • Service
  • Manufacturing engineering test
  • Research and development
