Traditionally, setting up a digital multimeter and generating useful data has required you to have a bit of instrument knowledge. Building your instrument knowledge can be time consuming, and you might lack confidence that your test is set up correctly.

New Agilent software reduces the learning curve and provides an easy way to set up your Agilent DMM. This measurement brief discusses different real-world problems you may face when you use DMMs and show how the new Agilent DMM Utility can help.
