Probe loading is true of every probe you use, so it's important to understand how the probe you are using might not be giving you the full picture. Spending £1,000's on test equipment without considering the probe is an expensive mistake. Here, Allison Dartt from Keysight Technologies explains what the probe loading effect is and how this has an impact on your measured signal. More importantly, Allison explains what steps you can take to ensure you get the full picture by selecting the correct probe.
