How to Minimize Probe Loading with Low Capacitance Probes

This application note describes how the high bandwidth, low capacitance passive voltage Tektronix probes bridge the gap between general purpose passive probes and higher cost active probes.

Probing a circuit always has some impact on signals. Probe loading changes the signal being probed and can cause measurement problems or can even cause a circuit to perform differently. Reducing capacitive loading can help minimize these effects. In this application note you’ll learn how low capacitance probes can improve your measurements.
