This knowledge base contains abstracts of Oscilloscope Application Notes, Whitepapers, Articles, Blog Posts and more provided by different oscilloscope suppliers. Click on a headline in the list below and you get to the full abstract of the document. At the end of the abstract there is a link to the complete document on the website of the corresponding supplier.

You can use either a full text search or a filter function to find the document containing the information you are looking for:

  • Full Text Search: enter the word or character string you are looking for (suggestions will be displayed on typing). This search is performed only in the Oscilloscope KnowledgeBase of Oscopes.info
  • Filter Function: there are 3 dropdown filter functions available. All articles include tags for Application (e.g. Debugging, Bus Analysis, Power,...), Industry (e.g. Automotive, Research, Wireless,...), Author (i.e. oscilloscope supplier) and Type (Text, Youtube Video, Webinar). Best start using only one filter parameter. Keep in mind that "Industry" filter only includes tags if the document is focussing on a certain industry. Please use this filter only if needed!

Abstract

While sample rate and bandwidth are crucial for revealing a signals time and frequency content it’s the third parameter, resolution, which is the most vital for detecting amplitude changes and revealing waveform details. Unfortunately, many people confuse resolution with accuracy, precision and sensitivity. Users need to consider also a number of secondary specifications (typically called dynamic parameters) such as Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR), Spurious Free Dynamic Range (SFDR), Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) and Signal to Noise and Distortion Ratio (SINAD).
