Sensitive rail-collapse measurements

12-bit resolution all the time plus 0.5% gain accuracy ensures unmatched precision for sensitive measurements, such as rail collapse characterization. Long memory up to 5 Gpts/ch permits extremely long acquisitions for complex cause-effect analysis.

WavePro HD performs best when combined with the Active Voltage Rail Probes but it can even help you get the most out of 10x passive probes.

Accurate ground-bounce and on-die measurements

Up to 8 GHz bandwidth at 20 GS/s means accurate characterization of high-speed on-die effects such as ground bounce, while exceptionally low noise enables identification and root-cause analysis of low-level noise sources.

Don't Let Ground Bounce Ruin Your Day, Dr. Eric Bogatin explains how to avoid it in this on-demand webinar.

Detailed PDN spectral characterization

WavePro HD's low noise floor at full 8 GHz bandwidth allows extremely detailed spectral analysis of the PDN noise environment. The 20 GS/s sampling rate results in a generous spectral span. Spectral analysis on 250 Mpt waveforms provides the highest resolution bandwidth possible.

Large offset range

+/-60 V offset permits the DC signal to be displayed in the vertical center of the oscilloscope grid even at high-sensitivity gain settings. It has a maximum +/-800 mV dynamic range.

Low attenuation and loading

Active Voltage Rail Probes has a nominal 1.2x attenuation for minimum noise. 50 kΩ impedance using the 50 Ω input effectively eliminates rail loading.

Assortment of tips and leads

A wide assortment of standard tips and leads makes it easy to connect to multiple probing points. Optional hand-held browser available.
