Tektronix P7380A

8 GHz Z-Active Differential Probe

Product Overview

The Tektronix P7380A is an 8 GHz Z-Active Differential Probe. Tektronix' active probe architecture preserves high bandwidth while providing improved connectivity with low loading. The Z-Active architecture is a hybrid approach composed of a distributed attenuator topology feeding an active probe amplifier. With Z-Active architecture, the P7380A uses a passive probe tip element that is separate from the amplifier, extending the usable reach of the probe. The P7380A architecture maintains high DC input resistance and a higher AC impedance than previous probe architectures while providing significant length between the probe body and the probe attachment point to the DUT. This architecture provides the best of both worlds, high DC impedance along with the stable high frequency loading of Z0 probes.

Here are the key features of the P7380A:

  • Bandwidth >8.0 GHz (typical)
  • Rise time 10--90% <55 ps
  • Differential ±1 V (5X)
  • Signal ±2.5 V (25X) P7380A
  • Input resistance
  • 100 KO differential
  • 50 KO per side
  • AC loading (see Technical Reference)
  • Interchangeable probe Tip-Clip assemblies
  • Solder down and square pin capability
  • Handheld adapter with variable spacing Tip-Clip assembly
  • Fixturing with an adapter
  • Small probe head for easy probing of SMDs
  • TekConnect Interface
