Digital Oscilloscopes

GAOTek offers digital storage oscilloscopes (DSO) which store and analyze the signal digitally rather than using analogue techniques. The concept used in the digital oscilloscope technology is that the incoming analogue signal is converted into a digital format using the digital signal processing techniques. The digital oscilloscopes are used for designing, manufacturing or repairing electronic equipment. GAOTek’s digital oscilloscopes are useful tools for engineers and they meet the demanding measurement challenges in the present market because they offer advanced trigger, storage, display and measurement features.

Functions of Digital Oscilloscopes

Digital oscilloscopes show the graphical representation of the signals for visual diagnosis and they help to find out the unexpected voltage source. They also represent timing, affected circuit, and shape of the pulse so that technicians could easily find out malfunctioning parts. These devices locate problems in the operations and send alerts for replacement or tuning. These instruments also show and calculate the frequency and amplitude of oscillating signals. Digital oscilloscopes are widely used to troubleshoot any malfunction components of a project by looking at the expected output after a particular component. Special-purpose oscilloscopes may be used for analyzing an automotive ignition system or to display the waveform of the heartbeat as an electrocardiogram.


A digital oscilloscope features six important elements such as vertical input amplifiers, analog to digital waveform memory, the analog vertical input amplifiers, a digital waveform memory, a time base (with trigger and clock-drive feature), the circuits for waveform display, the LED or LCD display and power supply.

The digital oscilloscopes sample a time varying analog signal and store in the waveform memory and signal values in correlation with time.

A digital oscilloscope has the ability to examine digitized information which is stored in memory. It can make automatic measurements based on the selected parameters of the user, such as voltage excursion, frequency and rise times. The digital oscilloscope can display the data captured in various ways.

Applications and Industries

Digital oscilloscopes can be used in a wide range of applications. Car engineers can utilize digital oscilloscopes to correspond simple information from sensors with serial information from the engine control unit. Medical researchers also utilize digital oscilloscopes to measure brain waves. The potential outcomes are inestimable. Overall, digital oscilloscopes are mainly used in industries such as the science, medicine, engineering, automotive and the telecommunication industry.
