Keysight N2870A Series Passive Probes and Accessories

Compact design with a 2.5mm probe tip diameter provides better visibility to the circuit under test than conventional 5mm or 3.5mm probe tips. This makes it easier to probe today’s fine pitched space ICs and components. The replaceable probe tip is also spring loaded, keeping it from slipping off the device being probed. To minimize the inductive effects that cause ringing of high speed signals, the innovative ground blade or spring ground connection can be used. Adhesive copper pads provided with the probe can be attached on top of an IC and connected to its ground pins to create a convenient ground plane for the probe to connect to. When used with the ground blade this method provides an ideal ground connection for probing signals with high frequency contents. The IC cap fits over the probe tip, providing a convenient self-aligning connection to fine-pitch IC pins.
