The PPM203B and PPM100 series allows designers to guide standard handheld probes onto the small geometries of fine-pitch interconnects, SMD packages, MCMs (multi-chip-modules), hybrids and ICs.

Features and benefits
  • Three axis articulated arm with HI-mass base (PPM203B)
  • Multi-turn fine adjustment controls for all three axes (PPM203B)
  • Fully flexible "Gooseneck" arm for different positions (locks securely in place with adjustment control knob) (PPM100)
  • Fine adjustment knob on probe holder (PPM100)
    • Spring compliance in probe holder keeps pressure at the probe point (PPM100)
  • Heavy base for desktop applications or C-clamp for other (Rack) applications, both Included (PPM100)
  • Adaptable to most Tektronix probe types
Applications
  • Research, electronic design, service and manufacture of small geometry circuitry
  • Fine-pitched controls to access circuitry such as MCMs, hybrids and other IC technology
  • Multiple test points access allowing hands-free operation

Probing fine pitch devices

Probing today's designs, with their delicate fine pitch devices, is safer and more convenient with Tektronix PPM articulating arms. The PPM series allows designers to guide standard handheld probes onto the small geometries of fine-pitch interconnects, SMD packages, MCMs (multi-chip-modules), hybrids and ICs.

The PPM articulating arms provide high accuracy and resolution with mechanically assisted probe positioning, helping designers meet the physical demands of probing the constantly shrinking geometry of devices.

PPM203B

The PPM203B has a three axis arm system. It is a general-purpose benchtop probing aid designed to be used when probing PC boards, hybrids and MCMs that employ fine-pitch devices and interconnects.

The PPM203B incorporates a weighted base that makes it well-suited to probing fine pitches in benchtop applications.

PPM100

The PPM100 is a low cost probing aid designed to provide quick and easy access to PC boards, hybrid circuitry and many other devices that require hands-free probing. The PPM100 has a flexible "gooseneck" arm allowing multiple adjustment positions. Once positioned the course adjust knobs lock the probe holder into position. A fine adjustment control at the arm head allows further pressure adjustment after the probe is initially positioned. The spring compliance incorporated into the probe head holder keeps pressure on the probe to circuit, maintaining a superior connection to the device under test.

The PPM100 includes both a weighted base for desktop applications and a C-clamp base for attaching to chassis or rack applications.
