Oscilloscope Basics & Key Features of Today's Scopes

Dates: Jul 19, 2011

Oscilloscopes are a tool of utmost importance for anyone wanting to look at the behavior of electrical signals in the time domain. This one hour seminar will provide a broad overview of oscilloscopes, focusing on key specifications and on some of the advanced waveform analysis capabilities of modern scopes.

In this seminar we will cover:

  • Key oscilloscope specifications including: bandwidth, sampling rate, memory length and how they affect measurements
  • Triggering
  • Input settings and acquisition models
  • Waveform analysis including: FFT, XY display, math, histograms and waveform parameters
  • Application specific measuremetns: power analysis and serial bus analysis (CAN, I2C, SPI, FlexRay, etc.)
