Digital oscilloscopes make use of binary numbers that correspond to samples of the electronic equipment’s voltage. This is in contrast to analog oscilloscopes, which use continually varying voltages. Digital oscilloscopes use an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) to convert the voltages it measures into digital information.
This tool uses high-speed digital signal processing circuits to enable complex processing of signals. It also uses digital memory instead of the electrostatic storage method in analog oscilloscopes, meaning it can store data as long as necessary with consistent stability, brightness, and clarity. Digital oscilloscopes are currently the preferred instrument to test equipment for most industrial applications. We offer new, used, and refurbished digital oscilloscopes.
