One significantoscilloscope specification is related to the waveform’s speed and determined by theoscilloscope’s bandwidth. It was discovered that the ability of the oscilloscope todisplay the waveforms accurately declines with the increase of frequency. Themanner in which it is specified can be viewed in IEEE 1057, which describeselectrical bandwidth as the state when the amplitude of the sine wave input islowered by three dB with regards to its level at a minimal reference frequency. Thebandwidth specification of an oscilloscope will usually be quoted in this format —Bandwidth = -3dB at 1500 MHz. If the specification of the oscilloscope for the -3dBpoint is not adequately high, it will be noted that the edges of square waves and

pulses are also slower attributed to the reduced high frequency components. Foradequate oscilloscope specification, one must ensure that the oscilloscopebandwidth is higher than its operating frequency. A Five Times Rule is generallyemployed as a rule of thumb. Thus, a bandwidth should be five times the signal’shighest frequency component. With this rule, errors caused by frequency limitationswill be lower than ± 2%.validityHow Important is Calibration?The calibration process compares a measuring instrument with a measurement standard. This is to establish the relationship between the values indicated by the instrument and those of the standard. Over time, the accuracy of your tests can drop.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
