TriMode probing, connectivity, and
performance
TriMode™ Probing Architecture
After TriMode (P75TLRST): 1 probe for differential, single ended, and common mode,
with only 1 setup required.
Connectivity Plus – Solder Down – Handheld
– Fixtured
Before TriMode: 1 probe for differential; 2 probes for SE and common mode; or 1 probe
soldered and resoldered 3 times; 2 probes for common mode.
The P7500 Series TriMode probe architecture offers various levels of
connectivity and provides the highest probe fidelity available for real-time
oscilloscopes. The multipoint connectivity solutions of the P7500 Series
include:
One-probe setup makes differential, single ended, and common mode
measurements accurately and definitively.
Tektronix is a known leader when it comes to signal fidelity and signal
acquisition. Building on our history of market-leading innovations in probing,
we invented a revolutionary probing architecture called “TriMode™ Probing”
that defines the next-generation industry benchmark for usability and signal
fidelity. This architecture changes the rules of probing and allows you to
work more effectively and efficiently. By enabling unique functionality, the
P7500 Series TriMode probes allow you to switch between differential,
single ended, and common mode measurements without moving the probe
from its connection points.
Improved productivity is achieved by reducing setup time. One setup can
be used to make the three different types of measurements all with the
press of a button. The TriMode Probe architecture for the P7500 Series
probes continues the Tektronix tradition of high-bandwidth and low-DUT
loading while providing improved connectivity and value.
TriMode Performance Solder Tip The highest-performance solder tip. Up to 25 GHz
bandwidth.

TriMode™ Probe Family - P7500 Series Datasheet
TriMode Long-reach Solder Tip A high performance solder tip with a long reach and
very small, low-profile form factor. Up to 20 GHz bandwidth.
TriMode Resistor Solder Tip High-performance solder tip with easy-to-solder tip
resistors. Up to 18 GHz bandwidth.
TriMode™ Long Reach Solder Tip (75 Ω tip resistor) A high performance solder tip for
use with memory chip interposers with embedded 100 Ω resistors. Up to 20 GHz
bandwidth.
TriMode Extended-resistor Solder Tip Medium-performance solder tip with long easyto-solder tip resistors. Up to 7 GHz bandwidth.
TriMode™ Long Reach Solder Tip (0 Ω tip resistor) A high performance solder tip for
use with memory chip interposers with embedded 175 Ω resistors. Up to 20 GHz
bandwidth.

Datasheet
TriMode Micro-coax Tip Low-cost, quick-connect solder tips. Up to 4 GHz bandwidth.
Damped Wire Tip Low-cost solder tips ideal for high-density probing. Up to 8 GHz
bandwidth.
Precision Differential Probing Module High-performance handheld probing module.
Up to 18 GHz bandwidth.
TriMode High-temperature Tip When used with the 1.5 m Socket Cable XL, this tip can
be used in environments from –55 °C to 150 °C. Up to 10 GHz bandwidth with DSP.
Handheld and fixtured probing needs are met using the optional Precision
Differential Probing Module (P75PDPM). Its small precision tapered tips,
variable articulation of the probe tip, and quick-adjusting variable tip
spacing provides the needed flexibility for adapting to vias and other test
points of differing sizes from 30 mils to 180 mils.
These precision connectivity tools enable you to access multiple signals on
anything from convenient test pads to hard-to-reach, high-density circuitry.
