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?
