1 DMM, oscilloscope, function generator CHM6158C - Lecture 4 Jan 18 • diagnostic instrumentation (DMM, ammeter, oscilloscope), merits and advantages • delay generator (exact timing, triggers) • function generators (generate time-varying functions) • “troubleshooting” = diagnostic tools

2 Digital multimeter Note maximum voltages (400 VDC) and currents (mA) that can be measured. If need to measure larger voltages need high-voltage probe. Highly versatile (voltmeter, ammeter, ohmmeter) + - Slow-changing voltages (update rate is sec), low sensitivity for currents (mA)

3 Principles of measurements Variable resistor • Very low internal resistance (do not increase overall resistance of circuit) • In series with circuit (all current flows through ammeter) • High internal resistance • In parallel with circuit Why?
