Leading probe solutions for real-time digital systems analysis – P5900 series probes

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 lowest probe loading, the P5900 Series logic analyzer probes protect the integrity of your signal - minimizing the impact on your design. The P5900 Series logic analyzer probes when used with TLA6400 Series logic analyzers make sophisticated logic analysis available at an affordable price. Select from a variety of attachment mechanisms, including the high-density D-Max®, Mictor, and general-purpose.

P5910 17-channel general purpose probe

The 17-channel P5910 provides flexible general-purpose probing, with support for 0.100 in. and 2 mm pin spacing, low input capacitance, and accessories for connecting to many industry-standard connections.


P5960 34-channel D-Max probe

For applications where circuit board space is limited, the 34-channel high-density P5960 D-Max offers the smallest available footprint and a quick connection mechanism.


P5934 34-channel Mictor probe

The P5934 is 34-channel mictor probe with quick connect/disconnect and a positive-latching mechanism to ensure a secure, reliable connection.


All specifications are guaranteed unless noted otherwise. All specifications apply to all models unless noted otherwise.
