Down load the links below to view the instruction video or document on how to convert the GigaProbes™ 100 ohm differential probe to a 50 ohm probe. The GigaProbes™ kit comes with all the components needed to perform this task that takes about 5 min. to perform. The probe can be converted back to a 100 ohm probe at any time.
Using 50 Ohm GigaProbes for Package Failure Analysis
Quickly locate Device Package Failure modes (open/short) and location in time or distance (meters/inches) using IConnect impedance profile (Z-line) function to eliminate multi-path reflection error. The Z-line waveform provides a clear view of an open or short waveform. Using the GigaProbes in the 50 ohm mode and the FA “Comparative Method” we located the open trace by comparing the suspect trace with good traces or of traces that are routed to the same location a seen in the above IConnect impedance plot.
