The Importance of Digital Triggering in Today's Oscilloscopes
Oscilloscopes are the primary instrument used for measuring time-domain parameters of waveforms such as rise time and amplitude. The different time-invariant behavior of hardware components can cause measurement errors that cannot be calibrated. Triggering based on digitized data can provide a consistent signal path for the acquisition and trigger system.
- Difference between analog and digital trigger systems
- Benefits of digital triggering
- Flexible trigger filtering
- Stable triggering on signals with high frequency noise
