Tektronix announced its second-generation IsoVu™ Isolated Oscilloscope Probes, the TIVP Series, which significantly advance the capabilities of the ground-breaking probes first introduced in 2016. The second-generation IsoVu™ probes extend the applications for isolated probe technology to the entire power system design market with a smaller size, improved ease of use, and enhanced electrical performance.
Making accurate measurements on high-speed ungrounded systems can be nearly impossible using traditional differential probes. Engineers working with wide-bandgap technologies such as SiC and GaN face difficult challenges to accurately measure and characterize devices due to the higher frequencies and switching speeds involved. By galvanically isolating the probe from the oscilloscope, IsoVu probes have completely changed how power researchers and designers make wide bandgap power measurements (more info).
