Abstract

Caution! Connecting your oscilloscope to a circuit or device can distort the measured waveforms. Should oscilloscopes carry warning labels like this one? Perhaps. Oscilloscopes, like all measuring instruments, are subject to the classic measurement problem -- observability. The simple act of connecting an oscilloscope affects the measurement. It is important for users to understand this interaction and the impact it can have on a measurement.
