Anritsu Company introduces the J1512A Passive Probe, for use with its BERTWave MP2100A BERT and EYE/Pulse Scope and compatible with GHz-band sampling oscilloscopes.
The J1512A simplifies monitoring and confirming the signal levels and waveforms of mounted electronic devices without onboard coaxial connectors, such as SMA connectors. It enables engineers to more efficiently verify the designs of high-speed digital communications equipment and devices.
The J1512A Passive Probe covers the DC to 7.5 GHz frequency band and has low input capacitance (0.5 pF max.), in support of monitoring high-speed signal waveforms. The new tool’s attenuation ratio can be switched between 10:1 and 20:1 by changing the resistance, optimizing the measurement condition. Accurate evaluation of high-frequency circuits is also assured via its short ground lead with excellent elasticity.
When adding this high-frequency probe to the MP2100A series, developers and manufacturers gain an efficient, accurate test solution to verify the performance of high-speed equipment and devices used in Next Generation Networks (NGNs). The BERTWave MP2100A is an all-in-one instrument for BER, eye, and pulse pattern measurements and analyses. It performs BER measurements and eye pattern analysis simultaneously, shortening measurement times.
