RT-ZD10 Active Differential Probe

Key facts

  • Bandwidth: 200 MHz to 4.5 GHz
  • Input impedance: up to 1 MΩ
  • Low input capacitance: less than 1 pF
  • Very low added noise
  • Integrated high precision DC voltmeter (not available for all models)

Brief description

Differential signals are used especially at high clock rates to effectively suppress common mode interference and to transmit broadband signals without errors. These signals can be measured accurately only by using differential probes. Rohde & Schwarz active differential probes offer high input impedance, high common-mode rejection and low added noise.
