EEVblog:
How to simulate a x1 oscilloscope probe in LTSPICE.
And how to use the lossy transmission line model in practice with the spice directive.

Mysteries of x1 oscilloscope probes revealed:

Hello Dave, thank you for nice video - good point with the Spice DC setting by big R to enable synthesis of 'floating' circuits.
Several years ago I found the Joe Weber's >100 pages document about
Tektronix osc. probes design from 1969 - 'Oscilloscope Probe Circuits'.
Not sure you saw/read it but anyway, even it's a little bit ancient, the theory holds and it's nice reading for anybody who's interested in.

I haven't seen that, is there a PDF available?

Search for TekProbeCircuits.pdf

It can be found at a number of places.

David Hess:
Oscilloscope probes are actually tested and specified with a 25 ohm source impedance from a parallel terminated 50 ohm source.  The probe tip adapter used for testing is driven from a 50 ohm generator and has a 50 ohm parallel termination built into it directly at the probe tip, like a 50 ohm feedthrough terminator.  So your bandwidth results are only half of what they should be.

Is there a PDF available.  Sheesh, only on days ending in "Y": (1)
