Using probes with a Spectrum Analyser

Posted on: August 20th, 2021 by James
Using probes with a Spectrum Analyser August 20, 2021
Using a Passive Oscilloscope Probe with a Spectrum Analyser Solution: Spectrum Analysers are typically used to measure radio frequency (RF) signals. The signals are usually delivered to the RF input of the analyser with an antenna, magnetic probe, or using a cable with a matched impedance. This minimises impedance mismatching which lowers re...
