This paper discusses algorithms and hardware required to make vector network measurements and then compares the measurements on a simple low pass filter to measurements taken by a vector network analyzer. Oscilloscopes and digitizers have been steadily increasing in bandwidth. At the same time Interchangeable Virtual Instrument drivers have made porting software between different scopes a simple matter. These technologies make investments in algorithm development more cost effective. The algorithms have a longer life, lower costs to maintain, and ease of porting the algorithms to future scopes.

  • Dynamic calibration of oscilloscopes and waveform recorders using pulse standards

    After arguing that virtually no one calibrates oscilloscopes or waveform recorders properly and completely, the author points out that, in most cases, the tools for performing complete and proper calibrations are available when they are required by the application. After a brief introduction describing the current methods used to calibrate oscilloscopes, the problems associated with oscilloscope vertical channel bandwidth testing are discussed and illustrated. Then, a solution that involves pulse signals and an NIST- developed deconvolution algorithm is described. The proposed method for the complete and correct calibration of an oscilloscope voltage channel's speed of response is based on measuring, digitizing, and deconvolving a standard (known) pulse. It is noted that there is an added cost associated with this complete and correct calibration method, and it may not be justified for all applications. For analog oscilloscopes in particular, it may end up being cheaper to purchase a new 'smart' digitizing oscilloscope, well suited to the application of this calibration technique, than to try to apply these methods to the analog scope.<<ETX>>

  • Using oscilloscopes with power electronic circuits

    Oscilloscopes are probably the most widely used pieces of test equipment today. Over the past few years specifications have improved whilst prices have tumbled. A simple 20 MHz dual channel unit can now be purchased for under Pounds 300 (less than 10 years ago) and instruments with bandwidths of several hundred Megahertz are readily available at relatively modest prices. However, despite the increase in sophistication and improved specifications, most oscilloscopes are not ideally suited for use in the power electronics environment. The problems involved in working with typical signals found in power electronics circuits are assessed.<<ETX>>

  • Instrumentation: Digital storage oscilloscopes: Digital scopes may evolve like the digital multimeter, offering data-capture, transfer, and processing in addition to present capabilities

    Considers the latest developments in digital storage oscilloscopes such as vast increases in the storage bandwidth, ability to store waveform data indefinitely as well as capturing and displaying waveform measurements. Also the possibility of interfacing with computers is explored which allows automatic signal processing and waveform analysis and the results can be displayed on the oscilloscope screen or transferred to another part of a larger test system for storage, further processing or documentation. Common waveform measurements can also be easily computed with a single key stroke. Another advantage of digital storage oscilloscopes is that most can store several waveforms and permit the waveform data to be stored and read out repeatedly without fading or blooming of the trace.

  • Minimum phase response reconstruction of sampling oscilloscopes based on the NTN calibration

    This paper describes an algorithm for determining the minimum phase response of sampling oscilloscopes of a linear time-invariant response function from its magnitude. The procedure is based on Kramers-Kronig relations in combination with the harmonic phase response measurement of the NTN calibration. Although the truncation of the Hilbert transform gives rise to large errors in estimated phase, these errors may be approximated by using three basis functions. As an example, we got the minimum-phase response reconstruction of sampling oscilloscopes in the frequency domain; its frequency resolution achieves 1 MHz.

  • New triggering system and signal processing in digital oscilloscopes

    The authors have developed a 200-M sample/s digital oscilloscope that realizes the multigate triggering function and incorporates a 32-b RISC-(reduction- instruction-set-computer-) type processor and a floating-point coprocessor to execute various functional calculations and to display data on the screen. They describe a unique waveform triggering system (multigate triggering) and discuss the implementation and applications of a RISC-type processor for sophisticated signal processing functions. Multigate triggering is a real-time qualifying system that enhances the conventional level-crossing trigger. In digital oscilloscopes the digitized data are prestored in acquisition memory before the trigger occurs. In multigate triggering these prestored data are used by the digital comparator array for selecting the desired waveform. The RISC-type processing system has realized fast and accurate computations, including the Hilbert transform and digital filtering.<<ETX>>
