Jitter spectrum measurements with a digital oscilloscope

February 21, 2022

Clockworks Signal Processing released an application note that measures jitter using a SIGLENT XE series of oscilloscopes. The basic idea is simple enough – measure the clock edges and see if they are all exactly evenly spaced or if they change (jitter) over time. A non-uniform clock fed to an ADC or DAC will produce … Continued

Oscilloscope Remote control TEK emulation mode

July 27, 2021

Overview This application note describes the features and usage of the Tektronix compatibility mode for remote control of the SIGLENT SDS5000X and SDS6000A oscilloscope series. In many cases, a SIGLENT SDS5000X/6000A scope can replace a similar Tektronix product without many changes to the existing code. Furthermore, it describes in detail the limitations of the individual … Continued

Bode Plot of a filter using an oscilloscope and function generator

February 26, 2019

A Bode plot is a method of graphically displaying the frequency response of a system or device-under-test (DUT). Commonly, the magnitude and phase response of the device are plotted with respect to frequency using a shared horizontal frequency axis as shown in the example below:   By showing both the magnitude and phase information on … Continued
