6 Oscilloscope Tricks to Get the Most Out of Your Scope

eBooks

TIP 1: Get Started with Basic Triggering

 

Photo Finish of Your Signals

 

Oscilloscope triggering is one of the most important capabilities you need to understand when trying to get the most out of your oscilloscope. It is especially important when attempting to make measurements on many of today’s more complex digital signals.

 

Think of oscilloscope triggering as a racecar photo finish. Although it’s not a repetitive event, the camera’s shutter must be synchronized to the first racecar’s front bumper at the instant in time that it crosses the finish line. Viewing untriggered waveforms on an oscilloscope is just like randomly taking photos of the race. Between the start and end of the race, you’ll see a lot of racecars but you won’t get the information you really need.
