ROBUST HIGH-BANDWIDTH PASSIVE DIY PROBES

Introduction Before presenting this great tip I must admit I did not come up with this idea. This type of measurement probe is presented in the book High Speed Digital Design – A Handbook of Black Magic by Howard W. Johnson and Martin Graham. I first saw the idea written by fellow DIYer Janne Ahonen but he also gives credit to Howard Johnson. Please refer to Janne’s article for more technical explanation of ...

A DIY FLUXGATE MAGNETOMETER BASED CURRENT PROBE

Introduction Current measurement can be really awkward when working with circuits. Voltage measurements are (usually) straightforward, but when it comes to current measurements the story is different. One typical approach is to insert a known resistance by breaking the circuit, and then measuring the voltage across it. This is difficult if one end of the resistor is not at ground potential, because oscillos ...

PicoScope® 5000 Series – Flexible Resolution USB Oscilloscope

Today’s electronic designs employ a wide range of signal types: analog, digital, serial (both high- and low-speed), parallel, audio, video, power distribution and so on. All need to be debugged, measured and validated to ensure that the device under test is functioning correctly and within specification. To handle this variety of signal types, PicoScope 5000D FlexRes hardware employs multiple high-resolutio ...
