You’ve got a scope, now how do you get the most out of it without spending a lot of money?

I’m going to show you the right way you can do five common SI and PI measurements with a budget scope and some simple probes you probably already have around. We’ll look at some of the common artifacts to avoid so you can get meaningful measurement.

We’ll look at: probing a fast rise time signal to get its rise time, measuring a power rail with a 10x probe, measuring a low impedance power rail with a build it yourself power rail probe, measuring the source of near field pick up, and using the FFT function to analyze the root cause of noise pick up.
