a circuit node/test point to be forced to logic/voltage levels and/or monitored during simulation
A branch introduced into a circuit (or system) that does not alter the circuit's behavior, but lets the simulator read the potential or flow at that point.
An input device for making electrical contact with a circuit, a lead to connect to the circuit's ground reference, and a cable for transmitting the signal and ground to the test equipment.
A valid, reliable, and standardized assessment used to monitor student progress. Probes used for progress monitoring should be time efficient, curriculum-independent, and sensitive to small increments of growth.
a program or other device inserted at a key juncture in a network for the purpose of monitoring or collecting data about network activity

Proxy Based Estimating, is the estimation method introduced by Watts Humphrey (of the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University) as part of the Personal Software Process (a discipline that helps individual software engineers monitor, test, and improve their own work). PROBE is based on the idea that if an engineer is building a component similar to one he built previously, then it will take about the same effort as it did in the past.
A phase of active matching in which a candidate driver communicates with a device and verifies whether it can drive it. The driverâ€(tm)s probe member function is invoked to kick off this phase. The driver returns a probe score that reflects its ability to drive the device. See also "driver matching".
a physical device which observes and reports back to its senders
Small device for measuring and testing.
In geophysics, the device used to make a sounding.
a small but high-tech extension for ProfiTrace that makes it possible to do measurements directly on the PA bus
Probe was a 1988 American television pilot and subsequent TV series created by William Link and Isaac Asimov which aired on ABC. The pilot and series starred Parker Stevenson as a misanthropic genius who solved high tech crimes.
