Differential active probes provide truer signal reproduction and fidelity for high-frequency measurements. With ultra-low input capacitance and versatile device-under-test connection capabilities, the TDP1500 and TDP3500 Differential-ended Active probes provide excellent high-speed electrical and mechanical performance required for today's digital system designs.

Key performance specifications
  • 3.5 GHz (TDP3500) and 1.5 GHz (TDP1500) probe bandwidth
  • ≤1 pF (TDP1500) and ≤0.3 pF (TDP3500) differential input capacitance

  • 200 kΩ (TDP1500) and 100 kΩ (TDP3500) differential input resistance

  • ±25 V (TDP1500) and ±15 V (TDP3500) DC + pk AC input voltage

  • >60 dB at 1 MHz and >25 dB at 1 GHz CMRR
Key features
  • Outstanding electrical performance
    • 3.5 GHz and 1.5 GHz bandwidth models - accurate measurements for serial and digital applications
    • Excellent common mode rejection – reduces measurement errors in higher common environments
    • Low capacitive and resistive loading – maintains signal fidelity and reduces DC biasing interactions
  • Versatile mechanical performance
    • Compact probe head size for probing small geometry circuit elements
    • DUT attachment accessories enable connection to fine-spaced SMDs
    • Robust design for reliability
  • Easy to use
    • Connects directly to oscilloscopes with the TekVPI™ probe interface
    • Provides automatic units scaling and readout on the oscilloscopes display
    • Easy access to probe comp box controls or oscilloscope probe menu display for probe status, setup control, and diagnostic information
  • Integrated Scope/Probe system
    • Direct connection to and powered from the TekVPI™ oscilloscope interface (Connects directly to TekVPI scopes without the need of an external power supply, like many competitors require)
    • Single-button oscilloscope probe menu access
    • Setup and control from probe comp box or oscilloscope user interface
    • AutoZero - zeros out output offset
    • Remote GPIB/USB probe control through the oscilloscope

Applications
  • Design, validation, debugging, and characterization of common high-speed serial bus designs:
    • I 2C
    • CAN/LIN
    • SPI
    • Serial ATA
    • Ethernet (GbE)
    • USB 2.0 
    • FIreWire (1394b)
  • Signal integrity, jitter, and timing analysis
  • Manufacturing, engineering, and test

A better measurement tool

Specifically designed for use and direct connection to oscilloscopes with the TekVPI™ probe interface, the TDP1500 and TDP3500 Differential probes achieve high-speed signal acquisition and measurement fidelity by solving three traditional problems:

  • DUT loading effects - Are reduced by lower input capacitance and high input resistance
  • DUT connectivity - A variety of accessories exist for attaching to small SMDs, some come standard or recommended
  • Maximizing of system (oscilloscope and probe) bandwidth - Probing solutions for all measurements for TekVPI interface oscilloscope models up to 3.5 GHz
