The RTPA2A Real-time Probe Adapter extends the capabilities of Real-time Spectrum Analyzers (RTSA) by offering additional tools to make debugging today’s high-performance electrical designs easier. Using the RTPA2A with Tektronix RTSA, design engineers can benefit from industry-leading Tektronix active and differential probes to measure signals on SMD pins and other challenging circuit features.
The RTPA2A provides probe power for up to two Tektronix P7000 Series probes through an external power supply. Probe control signals are handled through a USB cable that connects the RTPA2A to the RTSA. This allows the RTSA to automatically adjust the scale factor to account for attenuation factor of the probe in channel A. The included SMA-to-N cable allows the high-speed RF signal to travel between the RTPA2A and the RTSA.
Microsoft Windows XP is required on the RTSA to communicate with the RTPA2A. The RTSA also requires main system software shipped after August 2005 to be compatible with the RTPA2A.
Tektronix offers a variety of industry-leading active and differential probes. Tektronix high-performance probes feature small probe heads and numerous adapters to provide a flexible and reliable connection to the Device Under Test (DUT).
All specifications apply to all models unless noted otherwise.
