Oscilloscopes

Learning Objectives

  • State what values are represented on the x and y axes of the display
  • Name the general components of an oscilloscope needed to display a waveform
  • Recall the differences between analog and digital oscilloscopes
  • Identify waveform types and examples of equipment that produce those waveforms
  • Describe how to use the basic controls of an oscilloscope
  • Express how to take simple measurements for voltage, period, amplitude, frequency, and phase shift
