New Probe for Rohde & Schwarz Oscilloscopes Measures Voltages in the Millivolt Range

The new R&S RT-ZP1X passive 1:1 probe from Rohde & Schwarz broadens the application range of its R&S RTO and R&S RTE series oscilloscopes. Both the probe and the oscilloscopes' front-end are extremely low noise, making this combination ideal for measuring the smallest of signals down to 1 mV/div, e.g., for power integrity measurements on integrated circuits and components.
