Digital oscilloscopes let your process the data from sampled waveforms in a multitude of ways. For example, you can apply an FFT to look at a signal's frequency content, demodulate many types of signals, apply math and gating, and so on.

Former LeCroy (now Teledyne LeCroy) engineer Arthur Pini has publish three articles where he shows ten "tricks" for getting more out of your oscilloscope. This week's quiz questions come from his first article, 10 tricks that extend oscilloscope usefulness, published May 9, 2014. Part 2 of this series will appear next week.

As always, answers appear on the last page.

  1. Which oscilloscope feature can you use as a signal source to make frequency response measurements with an oscilloscope?
    1. Function generator
    2. Calibration output
    3. FFT
    4. Edge trigger
    5. Fast edge signal


  1. Which kind of trigger will trigger an oscilloscope when a parameter falls outside a specified range?
    1. Runt trigger
    2. Exclusion trigger
    3. Edge trigger
    4. Level trigger
    5. Pattern trigger


  1. When detecting the envelope of an amplitude-modulated signal, what is the first step you need to apply?
    1. Full-wave rectification
    2. Half-wave rectification
    3. Low-pass filtering
    4. High-pass filtering
    5. Peak detection
