To address a wide range of measurement needs, the N2870A Series passive probes offer DC to 35 MHz, 200 MHz, 350 MHz, 500 MHz, and 1.5 GHz bandwidths. As a matter of fact, with 10 MΩ input resistance, 9.5 pF of low input capacitance, and low-inductance ground connection, you can use the N2873A 500 MHz for general purpose probing as well as low loading probing. To this end, this is why the device is able to achieve high signal integrity measurements as well as lower input capacitance for measuring faster edges more accurately.
Consequently, in the desire to improve manoeuvrability during use, the N2873A not only has a sharp probe tip, but is also spring loaded to help engineers keep the probe from slipping off the device under test. Indeed, the insulating IC caps keep the small probe tip centred on the IC lead and keep it from shorting adjacent leads. Accordingly, the standard flat blade ground connector and self-adhesive copper ground pad help reduce ground inductance while offering easy ground access.
Review of Key specifications
To ease the probing signals with high frequency contents, you can minimize the inductive effects that cause ringing of high-speed signals by using an innovative ground blade and a spring ground connection. This means that, adhesive copper pads provided with the probe can be attached on top of an IC and connected to its ground pins to create a convenient flat surface for the probe to connect to.
Moreover, with safety high on the priority list, the dual lead adapter has no shorting hazards since all external metal surfaces are insulated. This means that you can easily and safely connect the N2870A Series probe to a popular 0.1” pin header with 0.025” square pins. As for the accessories, the agility and versatility are maintained throughout, whereby the two-leg probe positioner offers an ideal hands-free solution for short circuit-proof probing of a fine-pitch IC.
