Oscilloscope Probe Rise Time Testing

In this blog post, I compared the rise time of four oscilloscope probes of various bandwidths using an avalanche pulse generator and a Tektronix 2465 300 MHz oscilloscope. The bandwidth of an oscilloscope probe is typically characterized using a network analyzer. But using a sub-nanosecond rise time pulse generator and a reasonably high bandwidth scope, we can infer the approximate bandwidth of the probe under test using the following equation: Continue reading ‘Oscilloscope Probe Rise Time Testing’ »
