Miniature Passive Probes Feature Bandwidths To 1.5 GHz

A family of miniature, passive oscilloscope probes and accessories feature bandwidths from dc to 1.5 GHz. Their compact 2.5-mm probe head diameter, low input capacitance, and various fine-pitch probe-tip accessories make the N2870A series probes well-suited for probing densely populated IC components or surface-mount devices used in high-speed digital systems. 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. The probes are available with attenuation ratios of 1:1, 10:1, 20:1 and 100:1, and bandwidths of dc to 35 MHz, 200 MHz, 350 MHz, 500 MHz, and 1.5 GHz. The N2870A passive probes are available now, with prices starting at $220. AGILENT TECHNOLOGIES INC., Santa Clara, CA. (877) 424-4536.
