Oscilloscope with Arduino tutorials

Oscilloscope and Arduino are tools for modern makers. Here are some videos and articles that combine together Arduino and oscilloscopes:

Learn Six Oscilloscope Measurements with an Arduino DUT article tells how you can learn to use your oscilloscope with Arduino. This tutorial is not a step-by-step guide on how to make each of these measurements on a particular scope. Instead, it is a general explanation on how to setup the Arduino and a screenshot to help identify if you set up your scope correctly.

How to Evaluate Oscilloscope Signal Integrity  article is intended to help you assess the signal integrity of your oscilloscope and make trustworthy measurements. Oscilloscope signal integrity impacts signal shape and measurement values, so you want to make sure that when you see on the screen represents accurately the signal on the circuit board and you know how accurate you can expect the result to be.

    Break Your Scope’s Bandwidth Barrier

    Oscilloscope bandwidth is a tricky thing. A 100 MHz scope will have a defined attenuation (70%) of a 100 MHz sine wave. That’s not really the whole picture, though, because we aren’t always measuring sine waves. A 100 MHz square wave, for example, will have sine wave components at 100 MHz, 300 MHz, and the other odd harmonics. However, it isn’t that a 100 MHz scope won’t show you something at a higher frequency — it just doesn’t get the y-axis right. [Daniel Bogdanoff] from Keysight decided to think outside of the box and made a video about using scopes beyond their bandwidth specification. You can see that video, below.

    There’s a lot of data on magnetic media that will soon be lost forever, as floppies weren’t really made to sit in attics and basements for decades and still work. and needed to read some disks that reportedly contained source code for several BBC Micro games, including Repton 3. They turned to Greaseweazle, an interface board that can dump just about any kind of floppy disk if it is attached to the right drive….
