Review of Tektronix: XYZs of Oscilloscopes

Download XYZs of Oscilloscopes (2001, 60 pages, 1.4 MB pdf file) NOTE: You can download the latest version from the Tektronix Oscilloscope Tutorial Learning Center, together with several other excellent tutorials on scopes and related topics. The only drawback is that you have to register first with your name and phone number.

This is a very popular introduction to oscilloscopes. Even though it is from a oscilloscope manufacturer it contains no advertisment for Tektronix products, but very useful generic information about oscilloscopes. It contains nearly no mathematics and you do not need any prior knowledge to read and understand it. At the end there is a multiple choice test with answer keys and a glossary.
