 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.
