The pitch/catch impulse probe is directionally sensitive such that both active tips must be over the same condition of
bond for unambiguous signal interpretation. For example, Figure 5-77 shows the proper way to align the active tips for
precise mapping of unbonds.

Some pitch/catch instruments permit the operator to select the frequency, while in others the frequency is fixed.
Typically, selectable frequencies range from 2.5 to 70 kHz; the frequency providing the largest received signal, due to
