What’s the Difference Between Digitizers and Oscilloscopes for Wideband Measurements? (.PDF Download)

We live in a time of significant technology disruption. Emerging applications in wireless communications are trending to wider bandwidths, as well as higher frequencies, denser modulation schemes, multiple channels, and more data to manage. To measure wideband signals, engineers typically use oscilloscopes and digitizers that utilize analog-to-digital converter (ADC) technology for waveform acquisition. In some cases, these instruments are used interchangeably for waveform analysis.
