Passive Probe

Passive Probe

Passive voltage probes ship standard with most oscilloscopes and provide a low cost, general purpose probing solution. Generally, these probes lack the performance of an active voltage probe but provide the ruggedness and wide dynamic range suitable for visualizing signals over a broad range of applications. Tektronix has released a new class of passive probes that redefine performance in the passive probe product category.

Tektronix new class of passive probe solutions offer:

  • Best-in-class bandwidth up to 1 GHz
  • Best-in-class input capacitance as low as 3.9 pF which minimizes probe loading effects
  • Best-in-class input capacitance which minimizes performance loss when long ground leads are attached
  • Automated probe compensation eliminating the need for the compensation screwdriver

Which probes are compatible with oscilloscopes with the TekVPI probe interface?
There are a couple different types of TekVPI interfaces, one with a notch and one without. The notch was implemented later and was put in place because the front end was designed differently and communicates uniquely with those types of probes. …

The data sheet for my oscilloscope says that the vertical input sensitivity is 1 mV/div to 10 V/div in 1 MΩ mode. But I turn the Vertical Scale control fully clockwise and I can only get down to 10 mV/div. What am I doing wrong?
You probably aren't doing anything wrong. But you do have a 10X probe attached to that channel, right? The 1 mV/div specs relate to the oscilloscope inputs. If the signal’s source impedance is relatively low (<< 1 MOhm), the signal’s frequency is…
