N2870A Series Passive Probes
The N2870A Series passive probe family sets new standards in high performance probing of up to
1.5 GHz bandwidth. These general purpose probes and accessories offer high quality measurements
at a very reasonable price.
Faithful reproduction of signals
The N2870A Series passive probes offer DC to 35 MHz, 200 MHz, 350 MHz, 500 MHz and 1.5 GHz
bandwidths and various attenuation factors to address a wide range of measurement needs. For
general purpose probing, you can use the N2873A 500 MHz model, which provides superior 10 M
input resistance, 9.5 pF of low input capacitance and low-inductance ground connection. This keeps
probe loading low enough to achieve high signal integrity measurements. The 1.5 GHz passive probe
offers even lower input capacitance for measuring faster edges more accurately, making it a low-cost
alternative to an active probe.
All N2870A Series probes come with the probe ID readout feature, allowing the probe to be
automatically recognized when connected to most Keysight Technologies, Inc. oscilloscopes.
Family of 7 mini passive probes spanning from 35 MHz to 1.5 GHz
