Shunt-Thru measurements with the Picotest P2101A 2-Port Probe and Bode 100

In this video Steve Sandler is demonstrating how the new Bode Analyzer Suite 3.0 can be used to measure impedances in the milliohm range. Steve shows how to calibrate the measurement and how to measure component impedances as well as the output impedance of linear regulators or switched mode power supplies.
