When using an oscilloscope do you find yourself trying to solve any of the types of problems listed in the poll below?
- When characterizing a signal such as rise time or timing budget, I care very much about a small section of my waveform. I am looking for specific issues or criteria. I don’t care very much about looking at historical signals that may have appeared on my scope while I am in real time/latest mode.
- When trying to find an issue (such as victim/aggressor noise) where I have setup an analog trigger I want to know if there is a correlation to a specific event in time in the communications buses in my system causing problems. While looking at my signal in real time/latest mode I want to be able to see my analog channel at a small time scale, and be able to look at other historical transactions at a larger timescale to help me understand where I am in the flow of my systems communicating.
- I am not sure what part of my system is causing the problem, but I do know that I can trigger on a signal that gets stuck which is the result of the problem. I want to capture as much data as possible so that I can search for errors in my signals to find the underlying problems, but I will do this after the capture has finished.
- Other - I’ll describe in the comments below
