What is an Oscilloscope?
An oscilloscope, also called a scope, is a type of electronic test equipment that allows signal voltages to be viewed usually as a two-dimensional graph of one or more electrical potential differences (vertical axis) plotted as a function of time or of some other voltage (horizontal axis). Oscilloscopes can be used to obtain various types of critical information such as frequency, noise, amplitude, and various other characteristics that may alter over a period of time.
Test Applications of Oscilloscopes:
-Aerospace and Defense
-Internet of Things (IoT)
-RF and Microwave
-Serial Design and Debug
Types of Oscilloscopes:
Oscilloscopes come in many shapes and sizes, and can be differentiated based on parameters such as the number of channels, bandwidth, sample rate, and record length. We offer a selection of oscilloscopes across these parameters, made by some of the biggest names in the test equipment manufacturing business.
Oscilloscopes can also be categorized into analog and digital. While analog oscilloscopes work with continuously variable voltages, digital equipment works with binary numbers. Digital oscilloscopes use an Analog to Digital converter (ADC). Types of digital oscilloscopes:
-Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes (DPO)
-Digital Sampling Oscilloscopes
-Digital Storage Oscilloscopes (DSO)
-Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes (MSO)
