Abstract:

Connectivity, system bandwidth, rise time, and probe location must be carefully considered when probing any target. In addition, the non-ideal probe exhibits parasitic effects that interact with the DUT and can pollute the measurement if not managed properly.

Engineers must commonly probe low and high frequency signals with high signal fidelity. Typical passive probes with high input impedance and capacitance provide good response at lower frequencies, but inappropriately load the circuit and distort signals at higher frequencies. 

Join Teledyne LeCroy for this webinar as we discuss: 

  • Selecting the right probing techniques to maximize the accuracy of your measurements
  • Probe specifications and their implications on the measured signal
  • Variety of probes and accessories available for measurement
  • Virtual probing software tools that allow the user to probe the signal when direct access is physically impossible
