Key features
  • Interface Tektronix P7000 series high-performance active and differential probes to Tektronix real-time spectrum analyzers
  • Seamless Integration
    • Automatically scales measurement for probe attenuation setting
    • Simplifies setup for troubleshooting, eliminates possible setup errors, requires no user adjustment
  • Extends the troubleshooting capabilities of Tektronix real-time spectrum analyzers with the world’s best probes
  • Troubleshoot and determine RF faults directly on circuit boards where no coaxial connection is available
  • Use differential probes for high-impedance IQ baseband applications
Applications
  • General RF troubleshooting – find sources of circuit interference
  • EMI troubleshooting – help identify components and circuits causing EMI problems
  • High-speed digital design – high dynamic range phase noise measurements
  • High-impedance IQ baseband input for low-power RF devices

TekConnect® probe adapter for real-time spectrum analyzers

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.

Tektronix high-performance probing solutions

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).
