Agilent Technologies introduces a family of miniature passive oscilloscope probes and accessories with bandwidths from DC to 1.5 GHz. A compact 2.5-mm probe head diameter, various fine-pitch probe-tip accessories and low input capacitance make the Agilent N2870A Series of passive probes ideal for probing densely populated surface-mount devices or IC components used in high-speed digital applications today.
The spring loaded sharp probe tip helps engineers keep the probe from slipping off the device under test. The small probe tip is kept centered on the IC lead by the insulating IC caps that also keep it from shorting adjacent leads. Optional probe-tip accessories provide specialised capabilities for challenging applications.
N2870A Series of miniature passive probes are available with attenuation ratios of 1:1, 10:1, 20:1 and 100:1, and probe bandwidths of DC to 35 MHz, 200 MHz, 350 MHz, 500 MHz and 1.5 GHz. The new Infiniium 9000 Series oscilloscopes comes equipped with one N2873A 500-MHz, 10:1 passive probe per channel.
Agilent's complete portfolio of oscilloscopes is available in a variety of form factors, from 20 MHz to 90 GHz, and offer industry-leading specifications and powerful applications. The Agilent N2870A Series of miniature passive oscilloscope probes are available now.
