P6780, P6750, P6717A Logic Probes Datasheet

No test and measurement solution is complete without probing, and the consideration of its impact on your system and your measurement time. With the industry’s highest-bandwidth differential logic probes, the P6700 Series logic probes enhance the performance of the MSO70000 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes by providing connectivity and signal integrity needed for broad system visibility. Equipped with 17 channels, these logic probes plug seamlessly into the MSO70000 Series with up to 2.5 GHz of signal bandwidth. Select from a variety of attachment mechanisms, including the high-density D-Max® Probing Technology that eliminates the need for onboard connectors.

Features and benefits
  • High-performance 17-channel logic probes for broad System Visibility (16 data, 1 clock/data)
  • Bandwidths up to 2.5 GHz for connections to today's fast digital signals
  • Variety of connectivity options for reliable probe attachment to devices under test
  • Hardware debug and verification
  • Processor/Bus debug and verification
  • High-performance embedded system, debug, and verification

High-performance logic probing for broad system visibility

The P6717A and P6780 logic probes break out 16 data channels and 1 clock/data channel over 2 flying lead sets (Group 1 and Group 2). Each lead set includes eight leads that have a positive signal input on one side and a negative input on the opposite side for connecting to individual test points. Group 2 also includes a clock/qualifier input.

On the P6750 logic probe, the D-Max® contact on the probe eliminates the need for a built-in connector. Instead, the probe attaches directly to a mating PCB footprint and retention assembly designed into your Device Under Test (DUT). The P6750 probe is secured to the DUT with two thumbscrews. Each of the 16 data channels has a signal input on one side and a ground input on the opposite
