Making measurements on signals with both low voltage and high voltage components, such as switched mode power supplies,
slow pulses requiring both high accuracy and high resolution, or amplitude modulated signals with very low modulation index,
can be a difficult task. To successfully complete these measurements requires getting the most out of your oscilloscope by
maximizing the vertical resolution without introducing measurement uncertainties. This webinar discusses traditional ways
of improving the vertical resolution in an oscilloscope along with the benefits and potential drawbacks of each method, and
then compares these with a new method that improves the vertical resolution by applying digital filtering to the signal in
real-time increasing the resolution up to 16-bits.

What you will learn by attending the webinar:

  • Important considerations to keep in mind when measuring low voltage signals
  • How to get the most out of your oscilloscope when more resolution is required
  • Ways to maximize the vertical resolution
  • An overview of the HD oscilloscope mode by Rohde & Schwarz
