Tektronix has been a leader in developing cutting-edge oscilloscope probe technology for nearly 30 years. The infographic below highlights some of the key innovations and probe features we’ve developed in the last few decades. From low noise, low loading, and high bandwidth power rail probes to low input capacitance, high voltage single ended probes, our portfolio is designed to help engineers test and measure their designs more accurately and more efficiently.
Oscilloscope probe patents through the decades
From 1994 to 2004, we were awarded a number of patents for improving low voltage single ended, low voltage differential, and current probes. As bandwidths increased, we shifted our focus, and between 2004 and 2014, we focused our research on innovating high voltage differential and passive probes. And since 2014, we’ve continued to develop groundbreaking technology on isolated and power rail probes.
As of 2021, Tektronix holds 82 patents on probes in eight distinct categories, including low voltage single ended probes, low voltage differential probes, high voltage single ended probes, high voltage differential probes, current probes, passive probes, isolated probes, and power rail probes.
