Oscilloscope manufacturer should supply one or two active probes with 1GHz or better scope. This way active probe will become more popular with average user and cost will go down. Can we make good differential probe using two good active probes?

Come to ScopeJunction.com :-) We're just starting a short series about probes! (today or tomorrow)

Differential probes are very useful while we monitor the wave forms from SMPS,Ballast and other high voltage applications especially when the regular probe earth is connected to the chassis of the scope. The differential probes are isolated active probes and when we trouble shoot the ringing or EMC related issues these probes help us very much.

For high speed signal measurement (signals with fast rise/fall time) it is always recommended to use active probes. Measuring high speed signals with passive probes doesn't reveal true picture.

What's your take on the best probe for the project? Any advice to new scope users out there?

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.
