Agilent Technologies Introduces Probes for General-Purpose Differential Signal Measurements


SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 5, 2009

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced 200-MHz and 800-MHz, high-voltage differential probes. The differential probes provide superior general-purpose differential signal measurements required for today's high-speed power measurements, vehicle bus measurements and digital system designs.

The Agilent N2792A and N2793A differential probes offer 10:1 attenuation, allowing them to be used for a broad range of applications. The probe comes with various probe tip accessories for use with small and large components in tight places.

The differential probes have an input resistance of 1 M? (for N2792A) and 200 k? (for N2793A) and low input capacitance of 3.5 pF (for N2792A) and 1 pF (for N2793A) to minimize circuit loading. The N2792A and N2793A probes are compatible with any oscilloscope with a 50-? BNC input. The probe can be powered by any USB port on a scope or computer, or by an internal battery (9V battery included).

Information about the Agilent N2792A and N2793A differential probes is available at A photograph of the Agilent N2792A and N2793A probe is available at

U.S. Pricing and Availability

The Agilent N2792A and N2793A differential probes are available now at a price of $1,700 and $3,000 each.
