Miniature passive probes

  • 27-Jul-2009 12:44 EDT

Agilent Technologies' family of miniature, passive oscilloscope probes and accessories offers bandwidths from dc to 1.5 GHz. Compact 2.5-mm (0.1-in) probe head diameter, low-input capacitance, and various fine-pitch probe-tip accessories make the N2870A series suitable for probing densely populated integrated-circuit (IC) components or surface-mount devices used in high-speed digital applications. The sharp probe tip is spring-loaded to help engineers keep the probe from slipping off the device under test. Insulating IC caps keep the small probe tip centered on the IC lead and keep it from shorting adjacent leads. Optional probe-tip accessories provide specialized capabilities for demanding applications. N2870A series probes are available with attenuation ratios of 1:1, 10:1, 20:1, and 100:1 and with probe bandwidths of dc to 35, 200, 350, and 500 MHz as well as 1.5 GHz.
