THE SHAPE OF PROBES TO COME
The PicoConnect 900 Series low-invasive, high-frequency passive probes are designed for microwave and gigabit applications up to 9 GHz and 18 Gb/s.
They deliver unprecedented performance and flexibility at a low price.
These browser probes employ a unique (patent pending) in-PCB construction to realize extremely low capacitance, coplanarmicrowave integrity, robust reliability and very low cost.
The result is a family of miniature interchangeable passive probe heads that cover a range of division ratios, bandwidths and coupling types.
Use with a wide range of instrumentation
The PicoConnect 900 Series passive probes are designed for use with any instrument having 50 Ω inputs, including oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, modulation analyzers and counters, without regard to manufacturer.
Interchangeable division ratio
Interchangeable probe heads provide three division ratios to suit each application. The 5:1 ratio is a particularly attractive and faster option when probing low-swing logic.
Phenomenal value for money
Held in the fingertips or soldered in, these browser probes at last permit convenient and cost-effective multichannel probing of microwave and gigabit signals.
