Oscilloscope History and Milestones

LeCroy oscilloscope WD2000Oscilloscopes have been invented in the 1920s. Up to now this instrument encountered many innovations.  In the beginning the most important manufacturers have been General Radio, DuMont, General Electric and Radio Corporation of America. Later Cossor and later Solartron dominated the market. Today the main players are Keysight, Tektronix and Teledyne LeCroy. Below we listed some important oscilloscope milestones.

 Oscilloscope Background

Digital Debugging - better using a Mixed-Signal-Oscilloscope or a Logic Analyzer?

Tektronix mixed-signal oscilloscope MSOToday’s technology is fundamentally balanced on an increasingly fine line between the analogue and digital domains; as data speeds increase — both within and between devices — the ‘ideal world’ of fast, clean digital transitions becomes evermore difficult to achieve. This presents new and escalating challenges when verifying faster digital signals that exhibit more and more analogue-like features. As a result it is becoming necessary to remove the hard line between digital and analogue.
