30 GHz Probing System Offers Differential Signaling For Serial Bus

Jan. 30, 2013
30 GHz probing system with coaxial connectors featuring probe-specific DSP filters that enhance performance and minimize noise levels. Paired with a DPO/DSA73304D oscilloscope, it provides connectivity and signal fidelity.

The new P7600 Series from Tektronix is a 30 GHz probing system with coaxial connectors featuring probe-specific DSP filters that enhance performance and minimize noise levels. When paired with the company’s DPO/DSA73304D oscilloscope, the probing system provides connectivity and signal fidelity for high speed differential signal measurements on serial bus designs like PCI Express. The system includes two direct connect 2.92 mm coaxial inputs enabling conversion of an incoming differential signal pair to a single oscilloscope input channel, rendering up to 30 GHz differential measurement capability on all 4 DPO/DSA73304D oscilloscope channels. The series also includes critical TriMode functionality that provides full support of differential measurements found in high-speed serial signals, along with independent single-ended and direct common mode measurements through the same probe connection. TriMode probing reduces setup time on standards tests for serial buses like PCI Express, Serial Attached SCSI and Thunderbolt that require both common-mode and differential signaling measurements. P7600 Series probing systems are available for order now with pricing starting at $25,000.
