Probe features large offset range and a DC voltmeter

January 30, 2017 // By Julien Happich
The R&S RT-ZPR20 is a new, extremely low-noise power rail probe with a bandwidth of 2GHz. Its 1:1 attenuation also ensures very good sensitivity.

The large offset range of ±60V permits analysis of the smallest disturbance signals during power integrity measurements, even on DC power supplies with a high voltage level. The probe also features an integrated high-precision DC voltmeter that allows users to simultaneously measure a power supply's DC component, irrespective of the offset voltage. This reading and the signal voltage are transmitted to the oscilloscope and displayed. This allows the DC level and ripple to be measured in parallel when qualifying power supplies for highly sensitive electronic components such as CPUs and FPGAs. The R&S RT-ZPR20 is designed for power integrity measurements in combination with the R&S RTE and R&S RTO2000 oscilloscopes from Rohde & Schwarz. The large 2 GHz bandwidth ensures that even very broadband disturbance signals are captured.
