New A/D technology in digital oscilloscopes
is setting new standards in wide-band digital oscilloscopes. 12 bit ADC’s,
coupled with low-noise front-end amplifiers, are providing engineers with 16x
more vertical resolution, wider dynamic range, 4x improvement in DC gain
accuracy, and improved Signal-to-Noise Ratio.

Join LeCroy as we look at the details of these technology improvements for
specific application examples. Comparisons of 12 bit versus 8 bit will be
discussed with attention on: methods to improve accuracy; 12 bit scopes
performance versus stretching the performance of 8 bit scopes using averaging
and filtering; practical design examples of detecting and measuring  small
signals buried in large signals; 12 bit  versus 8 bit ADC’s with frequency
domain measurements.
