How long will the MSO8000 Capture a Signal

Posted on: December 16th, 2020 by James
16/12/2020
To determine how long an oscilloscope will capture a signal when it is operated in single trigger mode is determined by taking the instrument's memory depth and dividing it by the instrument's sample rate.  The memory depth can be changed within the instrument's acquire menu and then the sample rate can be changed by adjusting the horizontal scaling.  The t...

16/12/2020
The oscilloscope models including the MSO5000, DS7000, MSO7000, and MSO8000 all include the ability to create compact .BIN file types for saving to USB sticks or the internal hard drive.The .BIN files are easy ways to save and archive display and memory data. Creating these files is done from the Storage/Save Wave menu. ...

Record Mode on the MSO5000, DS7000 and MSO8000

Posted on: December 16th, 2020 by James
16/12/2020
You can use Pass/Fail measurements for a number of applications. With this scope family you can set it up to stop or continue when there is a failure, you can have the instrument make a beep or take a screen shot when a failure occurs.  You can create masks with varying error budgets around a target signal, and you can even use the record mode to record all the failures as frames. In this way, yo...

The MSO5000, DS7000 and MSO8000’s cursor capability

Posted on: December 16th, 2020 by James
16/12/2020
The MSO5000, DS7000 and MSO8000 can all use several different types of cursors to measure the signal.  These include manual, Track, XY and Measure.  Manual cursors allow you to set the X and Y relationship of the cursors to manually measure the signal.  Track cursors allow you to move in the X direction and the instrument keeps the cursor on the signal. XY cursors will be grayed out under norma...

How to create a reference on the MSO5000, DS7000 and MSO8000

Posted on: December 16th, 2020 by James
16/12/2020
A reference signal can be created and stored on the scope to compare against later on.  It can either be save and recalled later or shown on the display. To save a reference press "Ref" and then press "SaveToRef" this will save a reference of your signal and display it behind the signal.  If you would like to save multiple references you r will need to change the current reference from Ref1 to R...
