P6246 Tektronix Differential Probe

Used
The P6246 is a 400 MHz differential probe from Tektronix. A differential probe is an active probe that has two inputs. A negative and positive input along with a ground lead that drives a 50 Ohm cable to transmit the output ot a digital oscilloscope channel.

Additional Features:

  • Bandwidth: DC to 400 MHz
  • Low Input Capacitance: <1 pF Differential
  • Probe Input Connector: Two Standard 0.025 in./0.63 mm (0.1 in. center) Square Pin Receptacle (Female)
  • Electrostatic Discharge Tolerant (IEC 801-2)
  • Connects to TEKPROBE™ BNC Interface on TDS Series Oscilloscopes or Other Instruments Using 1103 TEKPROBE® Power Supply
  • For Use With Oscilloscopes, Spectrum or Network Analyzers
  • >60 dB (1000:1) Common Mode Rejection Ratio (CMRR)
  • Small Probe Head Allows Easy Probing of SMDs

Applications:

  • Communications (Gigabit Ethernet, IEEE-1394, Fibre Channel)
  • Semiconductor Characterization (RAMBUS)
  • Disk Drive Read Channel NDesign
  • Communication Pulse Shape Compliance
  • Jitter, Cross-Talk, BERT Measurements
  • Location of Ground Bounce

The Tektronix P6246 enables users to make time domain or frequency domain measurements on high-bandwidth signals commonly found in disk drive, digital IC design (RAMBUS) and communication applications (Gigabit Ethernet, IEEE-1394 Firewire and Fibre Channel).

The P6246 is ideal for design verification of disk drive read, channel electronics and timing analysis for troubleshooting ground bounce problems associated with high-speed logic. They can also be used for pulse shape or cross talk compliance testing of highspeed communication signals.
