cynicmonster Posted January 3, 2006 Report Share Posted January 3, 2006 Hi All,I'm looking for some opinions regarding the choice of an oscilloscope.I am currently in the market for a 'scope and have been inundated with salesman pitch. What I need to know is: what needs to be looked at to help in the decision of purchasing a new unit.Some of the points of discussion (arguments!) that I have had include the frequency range (should I be looking for something with a range around 50Mhz - or is this required only for digital work) and whether it should be CRO or digital. I have noticed a lot of digital units that plug into a computer. Is it more feasible to head towards a pc-based 'scope in this day and age? Is a 'scope a piece of equipment that, if the right decision is made on day 1, will be with you for a long portion of your career without the need to upgrade?I figure that the majority of work I will be doing will be on the benchtop so I'm not looking for a portable unit.Looking forward to some feedback from you people that have been in the field for a long time. Regards,Cynicmonster :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
