TAP2500 and TAP3500 active probes for TekVPI™ probe interface

Selecting the right probe for your application is key to attaining the best signal fidelity in your measurements. Active probes provide truer signal reproduction and fidelity for high-frequency measurements. With our ultra-low input capacitance and unique interface, the TAP2500 and TAP3500 Single-ended Active FET probes provide excellent high-speed electrical and mechanical performance required for today's digital system designs.

Specifically designed for use and direct connection to oscilloscopes with the TekVPI™ probe interface, the TAP2500 and TAP3500 Active FET probes achieve high-speed signal acquisition and measurement fidelity by solving three traditional problems:

  • Lower DUT loading effects with ≤0.8 pF input capacitance and 40 kΩ input resistance
  • Versatile DUT connectivity for attaching to small SMDs
  • Preserves instrument bandwidth at the probe tip for up to 3.5 GHz oscilloscopes
