Handheld Probe

TDP Differential TDR Probe

The TDP BladeProbe enables fast and convenient TDR measurements and debugging. The BladeProbe tips are made from strong and rigid beryllium copper blades for handheld and probe station probing. The passive probe can be used to measure impedance, clock jitters, and skews. The TDP BladeProbe series can be connected to TDR, high performance scopes, and vector network analyzers.
