Tektronix P6247 Diff. Probe

The Tektronix P6247 Differential Probe 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 P6248 includes accessories that allow RAMBUS via probing and IEEE-1394 interconnect access. The small probe head geometry and assorted probe tip accessories allow these probes to easily accommodate manual probing of surface-mount devices while maintaining high CMRR.

The P6247 Differential Probe 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 crosstalk compliance testing of high-speed communication signals.
