Looking for circuit information on the effects a BNC has when it splits a line into two. (source splits to 'line A' and to 'line B'. Line B is a 1M ohm scope input. Line A goes to another scope input which is 1M as well. Is it true in this scenario the total 'load' seen by the source is now 500K?

Hello Xconnect,

There is some information missing in your description:

There are also other impedances involved like the impedance of the source and the characteristic impedance of the BNC connector (and also cables?), which have to be taken into consideration.

At least at DC to Low Frequency it is true you will see 500K ohms at the input of the TEE.

Also, buried in the small print of the specs for the so-called 1 megohm load device, might be reference to the shunt capacitance. At high frequencies almost certainly this factor will dominate the impedance calculation.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
