High-Performance DPO/DSA Probe Family Expands Bandwidth

Adding to the P7500 TriMode family of active differential probes for the DPO7000B digital phosphor oscilloscopes (DPOs) and DSA70000B digital serial analyzers (DSAs) are probes for 4 GHz, 6 GHz, and 8 GHz applications. TriMode probes allow users to switch between differential, single-ended, and common mode measurements without moving the probe connections. Additions to the series include the P7504, P7506, and P7508. The probes address state-of-the-art situations whereby heavily populated PCBs make probe attachment a migraine at best. The P7500 probes feature streamlined bodies so that several probes are able to fit into confined spaces. Interchangeable probe tip modules provide miniature solder-in tips plus interchangeable extension cables to enable ease of access to difficult areas. Additionally, a needle-nose style probe module is on tap for both fixed and handheld applications. For greater distance or probing inside an environmental chamber or oven, a 1.5-meter, high-temperature cable and tip accessory are available. Pricing for the probes starts at $6,990 for the P7504.
