The Oscilloscopes at a Glance
Display shows current input signals ∑ All analog and digital (54621D/22D) channels displayed in main and delayed mode ∑ Indicators for channel, time base, digital (54621D/22D) channel activity, trigger and acquisition status ∑ Softkey labels ∑ Measurement results Digital channel controls select, position, and label inputs (54621D/22D) ∑ Turn channels on or off individually or in groups of 8 ∑ Rearrange order of channels to group related signals ∑ Create and display labels to identify channels General controls measure, save and restore results, and configure the oscilloscope ∑ Waveform math including FFT, subtract, multiply, integrate, and differentiate ∑ Use Quick meas to make automatic measurements ∑ Use cursors to make manual measurements ∑ Save or recall measurement configurations or previous results ∑ Autoscale performs simple onebutton setup of the oscilloscope Horizontal Controls select sweep speed and delay parameters ∑ Sweep speeds from 5 ns to 50 s/div ∑ Delay control moves waveform display to point of interest ∑ Delayed mode and delay allow zooming in to show a portion of waveform in detail (split screen)
Run control keys begin and end data acquisition ∑ Run/Stop starts and stops continuous acquisitions ∑ Single performs one acquisition ∑ Infinite persistence accumulates and displays the results of multiple acquisitions Trigger keys define what data the oscilloscope will trigger on ∑ Source key allows conventional oscilloscope triggering ∑ Modes include Edge, Pulse Width, Pattern, TV, Sequence, I2C, and Duration triggering. Softkeys extend the functionality of command keys Select measurement types, operating modes, trigger specifications, label data, and more Channel inputs through a flexible probing system (54621D/22D) ∑ Sixteen channels through a dual 8channel cable with micro-clips ∑ Set logic levels as TTL, CMOS, ECL, or to a user-definable voltage Utilities ∑ Dedicated parallel printer port, controller operation, floppy disk storage Built in Quick Help system ∑ Press and hold any key front-panel key or softkey to get help in 9 languages.
