Does Anyone Still Use An Analog Oscilloscope?
By Louis E. Frenzel, Communications/Test Editor


In my recent technology report, "The Ultimate Test Drive: High-Octane Oscilloscopes," I got a chance to write about digital sampling oscilloscopes (DSOs). These instruments are truly amazing today because they not only make all the basic measurements but also perform all sorts of other useful test, troubleshooting, and measuring functions thanks mainly to the amazing analysis software available.
