THE OSCILLOSCOPE
THE OSCILLOSCOPEThe oscilloscope is one of the most important measuring instruments used in analyzing complex electronic circuits. The oscilloscope is a sophisticated voltmeter with a two-dimensional graph display that can be used to measure the voltage (amplitude) and frequency (time) of an electrical signal. This allows the operator to view voltage or frequency changes over time; therefore, either a constant or a changing signal can be measured. With a multitrace oscilloscope, it is possible to compare two separate signals. An oscilloscope is typically used to analyze signals that change too fast to be monitored by a common multimeter. Measurement of a rapidly changing signal is often necessary when troubleshooting radio or digital circuitry. A typical oscilloscope i…
