Agilent Technologies Inc. has rolled out semipermanent solder-in probing solutions for its InfiniiMax III oscilloscope probing system. According to the company, engineers can use these accessories for high-speed digital system design, component design/characterization and differential serial bus measurements.

Agilent N2838A 25GHz zero insertion force (ZIF) tips come with plastic sporks to aid in soldering the tips to the device under test. The tip uses a PCB substrate, making it a highly durable and convenient probing solution, stated the company.

The Agilent N2836A InfiniiMax III 26GHz solder-in head provides up to 26GHz of system bandwidth. The ZIF tip and solder-in head come pre-attached with a pair of damping resistors for eliminating the distortion and loading that affect probes with in-band resonances. They are user replaceable, so an engineer with a damaged resistor tip can simply solder a new damping resistor to the tip and quickly resume work.

InfiniiMax III differential active probes offer up to 30GHz of high-bandwidth performance for measuring differential signals, with superior signal integrity and flexible connectivity solutions for today's high-density integrated circuits and circuit boards. InfiniiMax III probes are compatible with Agilent's Infiniium 90000 X- and Q-Series oscilloscopes.

The Agilent N2836A solder-in head is available for $1,200. The N2838A ZIF tip set is available for $400.
