How can I estimate the minimum current measurement of a current probe using an oscilloscope?
September 27, 2021
Here is a quick method for estimating the lowest current measurement that is possible with an oscilloscope and current probe. This is especially useful when the datasheet for a probe may not show the minimum current that can be measured or it may be missing the noise floor value. For this note, we will be … Continued
Bode plot memory depths
July 19, 2021
Here is a table showing the various memory depths used in the Bode Plot feature Product series Max memory depth SDS1xx4X-E 140k SDS2000X-E 140k SDS2000X Plus/HD 100k SDS5000X 125k
Why is the Bode Plot start frequency minimum 10 Hz?
June 23, 2021
The minimum start frequency is set to 10 Hz because of the extended acquisition time required to collect enough data to ensure a useful level of measurement accuracy. If the low limit was 1 Hz, the scope would need to test 10 cycles (to maintain specified accuracy), so the time base will be 10 s/div. … Continued
