Experiment 2. Function Generator, Oscilloscope, and Frequency Counter
Investigate the physical meanings and characteristics of alternating current (AC) and
direct current (DC).
Objective of Experiment
To learn the operations of function generator, oscilloscope, and frequency counter.
To understand the basic parameters such as input voltage, frequency, wave form,
alternating current (AC), direct current (DC), etc.
To practice the switches and knobs on the oscilloscope (GND, AC, DC, frequency,
level, trigger, …)
To conduct a hands-on practice of oscilloscope, function generator
, and frequency
To adjust various parameters (wave form, voltage, frequency, …) of output signals
from function generators, and to compare with the measurements by frequency
counter and oscilloscope.
