P2001A GaN Probe 2-Pack, Accessory Kit

The Picotest GaN Probe extends the measuring range of your oscilloscope to high voltages safely and easily. Applications include power supplies and LiDAR.

This high voltage probe is suitable to view the fastest GaN (Gallium Nitride), eGaN, and SiC (Silicon Carbide) edges for timing and switching losses of high voltage power switches, as well as, EMC testing or glitch detection.

Anyone designing with high speed, high voltage switches can use this probe. Circuit designers and those testing electrical cars components will especially love this probe.

For test setups that need a 50 ohm connection, you can use the J2180A Ultra Low Noise Preamp which converts from the 1MOhm probe impedance to a 50 ohm impedance.

The specifications are subject to change without notice.

The probe is compatible with all 1MOhm equipment including Oscilloscopes and Spectrum Analyzers.

For those that need a 50 ohm connection, you can use the J2180A Ultra Low Noise Preamp which converts from the 1MOhm probe impedance to 50 ohms.

Caution: To avoid equipment damage and/or severe injuries or death ensure that the absolute maximum ratings are observed and not exceeded at all times.
