Differential probes from R&S to measure differential and ground-referenced signals

Rohde & Schwarz is offering new differential probes to measure differential and ground-referenced signals. Engineers can use these differential probes to analyze the ground-referenced or differential signals and also differential clock signals.

Rohde & Schwarz probes offer low noise of type. 3 mV and wide dynamic range of +/- 5 V. They feature a high DC input impedance of 1 M? and the low input capacitance (0.6 pF). Offset and gain errors are kept low throughout the entire temperature range, which means that users do not have to interrupt their measurements for compensation or recalibration when temperatures vary.

The base unit can easily be controlled from the probe through a micro button in the probe tip. Functions such as Run/Stop, Autoset or screen dump can be assigned to this button for easy use. The probe tip also accommodates the R&S ProbeMeter, which delivers DC measurement results for common mode and differential voltage regardless of the base unit's settings. This is the first time that a differential probe enables the user to determine the common mode operating point at a glance.

The probes can be connected to the R&S RTO and R&S RTM oscilloscopes and also to the Rohde & Schwarz spectrum and network analyzers by using the R&S RT-ZA9 probe adapter. The R&S RT-ZD20 and R&S RT-ZD30 differential probes are now available from Rohde & Schwarz.
