The Tektronix TAP1500 Single-ended Active FET Probe provides excellent high-speed electrical and mechanical performance required for today’s digital system designs. The Tek TAP1500 connects directly to Oscilloscopes Using the TekVPI™ Probe Interface

The TAP1500 Active FET probe achieves high-speed signal acquisition and measurement fidelity by solving three traditional problems:
  • Lower DUT loading effects with =1 pF input capacitance and 1 MOhm input resistance
  • Versatile DUT connectivity for attaching to small SMDs
  • Preserves oscilloscope bandwidth at the probe tip for DPO7000 and DPO/MSO4000 Series Oscilloscope models, up to 1 GHz
