  3. Capacitance and Inductance Measurements Using an Oscilloscope and a Function Generator

    If you don't have an LCR meter in your lab, or you want to demonstrate the behavior of capacitors and inductors under sinusoidal stimulus, an oscilloscope and a function generator can help you to do a simple, transparent impedance measurement. You can expect capacitance and inductance values with 3...

  4. Anatomy of an Eye Diagram

    This application note discusses different ways that information from an eye diagram can be sliced to gain more insight. It also discusses some basic ways that transmitters, channels, and receivers are tested.

  5. Debugging Serial Buses in Embedded System Designs

    Find out how the protocol trigger, decode and search capabilities of the popular MSO and DPO Series oscilloscopes solve serial bus integration and debug challenges of many buses such as I2C, SPI , USB, RS-232/422/485/UART, CAN, LIN, FlexRay, Ethernet, and I2S/LJ/RJ/TDM.

  6. The Oscilloscope: Basic Features & Functions Poster

    This poster provides basic features and functions of the oscilloscope including tips for capturing your signal and advanced triggering. Easy to print on 11x17 paper for an ideal reference to post in your lab, office or anywhere you use your oscilloscope.

  7. Oscilloscope Measurement Lab: Measuring Impedance and Capacitance

    This lab exercise demonstrates a technique for using an oscilloscope and function generator to measure impedance and capacitance. Voltage waveforms are measured on the oscilloscope and the measurements are used to calculate an unknown capacitance.
