Default DIY oscilloscope probe

Elso told something about a DIY probe, made of a coax cable and a 50R resistor. That could be an example of a diy probe.
But I found nothing on google about it.

Does someone have infos about this?

I suggest that you get a ready made probe. Very hard to do a good probe by yourself.

But thing thing is: At the tip 9 Mohms and stray cap of 3-5 pF (or maybe added) plus 1 Mohms at the input plus cable capaciantce of 9 times more than what it is at the tip. You want voltage division of 10 at all frequencies.

:: By a cheap 10x probe for your oscilloscope, and don't forget to calibrate it (trimmer at the probe contact)

Linear Technology Application Note 47 (High Speed Amplifier Techniques), has the designs of a probe you might like to look at. The design can be found here: on page 96. At 5.09MB, it's rather large, but well worth the wait.
