What is an Oscilloscope?

An oscilloscope or scopes are an important tool for electronics engineers or testers. They enable waveforms to be seen and because of this, is useful in looking for any problems in the electronics circuit. The name comes from the fact that oscillations can be viewed. Its name draws origins from the name cathode-ray oscilloscope (CRO) when it was still used, as seen in the old televisions due to the high voltages it needed. 


Common Waveform Variations on an Oscilloscope

Oscilloscopes track signals as they shift over time and indicate the signals on display. The amplitude of the signal is indicated on the vertical axis and time is shown on the horizontal. The device plots a graph of the instantaneous signal voltage as a function of time. In order to analyze waveform traces meticulously, here […]

Understanding Motor Drive Efficiency and Performance

Motor drives are commonly found technology that is used to transform constant voltage from the main AC power supply into a voltage that varies to control motor torque and speed. Motor drives have higher efficiency and have a degree of control that is not available on simple directly driven motors. These features result in energy […]
