Oscilloscope manufacturers are looking to supply more intelligent probes as engineers seek greater measurement accuracy

 

Connecting a probe to a device under test can prove to be a time consuming activity, especially in the case of the increasingly complex devices that are now entering the market. While the ideal probe should offer ease of connection, convenience, absolute signal fidelity, zero signal source loading and complete noise immunity, there is currently no ideal probe size or configuration.

 

MATsolutions' insight:
There is growing demand for probes that can measure higher bandwidths, as well as performing other functions. Probe technology is changing and companies are now not only having to focus on the ease of use and avoiding damage to the device under test, but are also having to meet the need for more intelligent probes and accessories.
