RF circuit designs typically require measurements at many stages in a signal path. As components continue to decrease in size, and with board space at a premium, it has become even more challenging to integrate adequate test connection for RF instruments. This application note provides detail on the use of oscilloscope probes for RF measurements using spectrum analyzers, and how they can help to overcome this challenge.
