Passive probe adds evaluation of mounted devices

The J1512A passive probe for the Anritsu BERTWave MP2100A BERT and EYE/Pulse Scope solution is also compatible with GHz-band sampling oscilloscopes.

It simplifies monitoring and confirming the signal levels and waveforms of mounted electronic devices without on-board coaxial connectors, such as SMA connectors, which allow engineers to more efficiently verify the designs of their high-speed digital communications equipment and devices.
 
Covering the DC to 7.5 GHz frequency band, the J1512A passive probe has input capacitance of 0.5 pF (max.), so the probe supports monitoring of high-speed signal waveforms. In addition, the J1512A's attenuation ratio can be switched between 10:1 and 20:1 by changing the resistance, to optimize the measurement condition. Accurate evaluation of high-frequency circuits is further assured by the short ground lead with excellent elasticity of the J1512A.
 
The BERTWave MP2100A is an all-in-one instrument for BER, eye and pulse pattern measurements and analyses. Since it performs BER measurements and eye pattern analysis simultaneously, it shortens measurement times and is suitable for both R&D and manufacturing tests.
