In the picture on the Left a TDS8200 Tektronix TDR system is used with two Gigaprobes™ and a Probe Station to model a T Cable assembly. TDR/TDT waveforms were taken and converted to S-parameters using IConnect. The S-parameters were ported to ADS and converted to a behaveral model.
The GigaProbes™ is compatible with the The DSA8200 digital serial analyzer sampling oscilloscope. Use your Gigaprobes™ in the 100 ohm differential or 50 ohm single ended mode for interconect analysis applications - TDR performance, S-parameter bandwidth using the Tektronix IConnect software.The GigaProbes are also compatable with all Legacy TDR Sampling oscilloscopes like the 11800 series.Order sampling head extenders to get the TDR sampling heads close to the device under test so you can use short cables to reduce the TDR risetime degradation.
The Gigaprobes(tm) can be directly attached to the new 80E10 and 80E08 TDR modules
Loss Tangent Measurements for Differential and Single Ended Transmission Lines
Failure Analysis of PCB with or without Components Mounted
(TDR) Impedance Testing of IC Package, Cable, PCB, Backplane
When GigaProbes(tm) are used with IConnect® from TDA Systems, a Tektronix Company:
Create accurate interconnect impedance measurements, S11 and S21 S-Parameter, eye diagram and mask tests
Create accurate Hspice models of connectors, IC packages, PCB’s, cables from TDR/T waveforms
Direct measurement of IC package and connector self and mutual inductance/capacitance
Faster Fault isolation
