What is the Measured Propagation Delay for the PB500 500 MHz Passive Probe (701943)?

The measured propagation delay for the PB500 500 MHz Passive Probe (701943) is approximately 8.2 ns.

A simple way of measuring the propagation delay, using the DL9000, is to measure the delay between two channels using the same input signal and the same input probe model. Connect the first PB500 probe to CH1 and introduce a pulse signal. Connect a second PB500 probe to CH2 using the same pulse signal from CH1. Trigger on the Rising Edge, and measure the delay or time difference between CH1 and CH2.

Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes

A mixed signal oscilloscope is an instrument enabling the simultaneous, time correlated observations and analysis of analog with digital (logic) signals, to establish causal relationships between the various areas of a device's electronics. They are purpose-built tools for troubleshooting electrical anomalies, measuring parametric values, and monitoring cause and effect relationships between signals.


Capture, analyze, and troubleshoot electrical or real-world physical signals. Oscilloscopes observe the change of electrical signals over time, continuously graphed on a display as voltage or amplitude vs. time.
