    ========================================
    The S-6 Sampling Head is a 50-ohms feedthrough unit for high-speed applications.
    CHARACTERISTICS
  • Rise Time - 30 ps or less. 35 ps or less as observed with S-52 Pulse Generator.
  • Bandwidth - Equivalent to dc to 11.5 GHz at 3 dB down.
  • Transient Response - Pulse aberrations following the steps are +7%, -7%, total of 10% p-p within 1.8 ns of step with reference point at 1.8 ns from step; 2%, total of 4% p-p after first 2.5 ns with reference point at 300 ns from step.
  • Displayed noise -5 mV or less, measured tangentially.
  • Signal Range - 1 V (dc + peak ac). 1 V p-p. DC offset allows any portion of input signal to be displayed.
  • Input Characteristics -
    Nominally 50 n, loop-through system, unterminated. SMA (3 mm) connectors. Safe overload is 5V,
