Tutorial for Tektronix TDS2012B Oscilloscopes EEL 4712 Lab By Jamie Unger-Fink Dr. Stitt - Spring 2011 The oscilloscope is a great tool for monitoring actual signals coming out of your board and may be very helpful to you in the future when debugging any type of hardware for this course or otherwise. Starting Note: Program your 8-bit counter from Prelab 1 into your 4712 board. All output bits (Q0:Q7, RCO) should be assigned correctly. Step 1 First, familiarize yourself with the oscilloscope. I have labeled a few important buttons and knobs, which are described below. 1 – Channel 1 Menu button / Channel 1 Volts/Div knob – The Channel 1 Menu button can be used to access the options menu for the channel, but most commonly, it is used to turn on/off that channel. The Volts/Div knob is used to adjust the amount of voltage measured by one box on the grid. Essentially, adjusting this knob will stretch the signal vertically . 2 – Channel 2 Menu button / Channel 2 Volts/Div knob
