Abstract : A fast risetime, high voltage, high impedance voltage probe utilizes a parallel R-C divider with damping and compensation circuitry to allow measurement of voltage from DC to picosecond pulses. A unique feature of this probe is its construction. The performance of this device is made possible by utilizing microwave chip components on a planar circuit used as the center conductor of a coaxial transmission line. (Author)
