Probing Tips for High Performance Design and Measurement
When a high performance system or component needs to be verified, it often requires attaching an oscilloscope probe. For high speed circuits, the effect of attaching a probe often cannot be ignored.
This application note covers a range of topics and challenges, such as circuit loading, simulation of probe effects, the impact of connecting with long wires, and single-ended and differential measurements with a TriMode™ probe. These topics relate to today’s complex high performance circuits and will help users of performance probes maximize the signal fidelity of their measurements.
