Wideband Frequency-Domain Characterization of High-Impedance Probes



Uwe Arz, Howard C. Reader, Pavel Kabos, Dylan F. Williams


In this paper we investigate the broadband microwave properties of high-impedance probes designed for on-wafer waveform measurements. We show that the standard two-tier characterization method fails. We introduce two new methods of characterization, both of which yield equivalent results.
