Taking the mystery out of oscilloscope probing

Posted By : Lanna Cooper

Differential probes aren't just for differential signals! What is a differential probe? It's a probe designed to measure a differential signal. 

But why are engineers everywhere using differential probes as general purpose measurement tools? Join Ally as she unveils this oscilloscope probing mystery.

Learn the three main values of a differential probe:

  1. Differential probes have a high common mode rejection ratio
  2. Probe loading is reduced with a differential probe
  3. Differential probes have higher bandwidth than single-ended probes
