Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced a Tektronix-to-Agilent probe adapter. The N2744A T2A adapter enables engineers to connect Tektronix TekProbe-BNC Level 2 probes to Agilent's Infiniium and InfiniiVision oscilloscopes.
Based on customer feedback, Agilent provided a solution to meet customer needs outside of its traditional product offering. The adapter provides the necessary probe power, calibration and offset control to the Tektronix probes. Engineers who already own Tektronix active probes can use Agilent oscilloscopes without having to purchase new probes.
In addition to the probe adapter, Agilent is expanding its offering of oscilloscope probes and accessories with the following new products:
The Agilent N2795A 1-GHz and N2796A 2-GHz single-ended active probes feature 1-Mohm input impedance and 1-pF input capacitance for low signal loading. The probes' built-in headlight helps engineers view small components on their circuits under test. These probes are directly powered by the oscilloscope's AutoProbe interface and require no external power supply.
The Agilent N2887A 36-channel Pro and N2888A 18-channel half-channel InfiniiMax soft touch probe heads connect Agilent soft-touch connectorless probes to the input connectors of the Agilent InfiniiMax I and II Series probe amplifiers. The probe heads enable engineers to probe high-density signals with up to 4 GHz of bandwidth. The probes also allow engineers to make the multichannel measurements commonly required in DDR memory testing and in other high-speed applications where space is tight.
The Agilent N2893A is a 100-MHz, 15-A AC/DC current probe with AutoProbe interface for InfiniiVision and Infiniium oscilloscopes. The new current probe features auto degauss (demagnetization) and auto calibration to remove residual magnetism and unwanted DC offset in the probe. This feature helps engineers make more accurate low-level DC current measurements. The N2893A current probe also excels in accurately capturing transient or steady-state currents, a must for testing and debugging today's power electronic devices.
