The RTPA2A-Factory Refurbished Real Time Probe Adapter extends the capabilities of Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers (RTSA) by offering additional tools to make debugging today’s high-performance electrical designs easier.
Using the RTPA2A-Factory Refurbished with Tektronix RTSA, design engineers can benefit from Tektronix' industry-leading active and differential probes to measure signals on SMD pins, and other challenging circuit features.
The RTPA2A-Factory Refurbished provides probe power for up to two Tektronix P7000 Series probes through an external power supply. Probe control signals are handled through a USB cable that connects the RTPA2A-Factory Refurbished to the RTSA. This allows the RTSA to automatically adjust the scale factor to account for attenuation factor of the probe in channel A.
The included SMA-to-N cable allows the high speed RF signal to travel between the RTPA2A-Factory Refurbished and the RTSA.
Microsoft Windows XP is required on the RTSA to communicate with the RTPA2A-Factory Refurbished. The RTSA also requires Main System software shipped after August 2005 to be compatible with the RTPA2A-Factory Refurbished.
