re: Oscilloscope probe accessories — It's the little things that matter

Thanks for reposting this article, it is timely for me. I've been hunting for what is referred to in this article as a "PC Board Adapter" ... a PC mountable connector into which a scope probe can be inserted. I can't seem to find anything for a 5mm probe tip that could be installed into a prototyping board with 0.100" CC hole spacing. ITT Canon made this at one time (P/N DM121073-203), but they seem to be difficult to find now. Tek has two parts, a chassis mount part and one that requires a specific pad layout on a board. It appears as though the ITT part is a standard SMA connector with a shroud attached that engages the scope probe tip ground ring. I'm surprised that this part is not more available. Any leads?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
