New J2161A Brings 2-Port Shunt-Through Impedance Measurement to Scopes

August 7, 2019 Phoenix, AZ: Picotest.com, a leader in high resolution test and measurement equipment, has released the J2161A, 2-Way Wideband Active Splitter. This accessory enables the 2-port shunt-through impedance measurement on oscilloscopes. Traditionally, this measurement has been performed on Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) or Frequency Response Analyzer (FRAs). But oscilloscopes, such as the Tektronix Series 5 and 6 scopes, offers a software add-on (5/6-PWR software) to enable this measurement in the frequency domain. The 2-port measurement is the ‘Gold Standard’ test for Power Distribution Network impedance in the microohm…
