ADALM2000 BNC Adapter Board

The AD-M2KBNC-EBZ is an ADALM2000 add-on board which allows the user to connect oscilloscope probes and other test leads to the analog inputs of M2K.

  • AC or DC coupling on all channels
  • Possibility to reconfigure the analog inputs as differential input channels
  • Access to all other ADALM2000 output pins
  • Oscilloscope probes, BNC to grabber cables and mini grabber test clips are included in the package


The AD-M2KBNC-EBZ has 2 single ended input channels and 2 single ended output channels. All these channels are terminated in a right-angle BNC connector which provides quick connection and a locking mechanism. The single ended input channels can be reconfigured as differential input channels by modifying a solder jumper on the bottom of the board. In this way, all 4 BNC connectors will be used for the analog input section and the output of the M2K is still available on the 30 pin header of the board.


  • Electronic test and measurement equipment
  • General-purpose signal processing applications
  • Automated test equipment
  • Educational applications

Package contents

  • 2 x Oscilloscope Probes (PA360 60MHz x1 & x10 Passive Probe)
  • 2 x BNC to grabber cables
  • 10 x mini grabber test clips

Getting started

The BNC adapter board is simply plugged into the ADALM2000 and can be used straight away. It does not need any supply or additional circuitry.

AC/DC Coupling

The input and output channels of this board can be AC or DC coupled using the shunt jumpers. In the following table is presented the jumper configuration:

Jumper Missing Jumper 1-2 shorted Jumper 2-3 shorted
S1- Analog In channel 1 inoperable/disconnected DC coupled AC Coupled
S2- Analog In channel 2 inoperable/disconnected DC coupled AC Coupled
P4- Analog Out channel 1 inoperable/disconnected DC coupled AC Coupled
P5- Analog Out channel 2 inoperable/disconnected DC coupled AC Coupled
