Is it necessary to eliminate any skew between the voltage and current probes? How can I compensate for different delays in probes when using my InfiniiVision oscilloscope?

Yes, it is necessary to eliminate skew if your measured time intervals are in the ns range as small differences in cable length can totally obscure the measurement.

On the InfiniiVision (5000/6000/7000 Series) oscilloscopes, press the Channel key; in the Channel menu, under the Probe softkey, you will find the Skew softkey. Each analog channel can be adjusted + or – 100 ns for a total of 200 ns difference.

The skew settings are not affected by pressing AutoScale. However, the skew value will return to zero seconds if you press the Default Setup softkey in the Save/Recall menu.
