OSCILLOSCOPES
OSCILLOSCOPES
Tektronix offers oscilloscopes for many different applications and uses. To help you choose the right
scope for your needs, the most common criteria for selecting a scope are listed below, along with
helpful tips for determining your requirements.
1
Bandwidth
3
All oscilloscopes have a low-pass frequency response that
rolls off at higher frequencies. Oscilloscope bandwidth is
specified as being the frequency at which a sinusoidal input
signal is attenuated to 70.7% of the signal’s true amplitude
– the -3 dB point. Your oscilloscope must have sufficient
bandwidth to capture all relevant frequency components of
your signal. If you regularly work with digital signals, it may
be easier to consider bandwidth by comparing signal and
oscilloscope rise time specifications. Use an oscilloscope
with a rise time specification five times faster than your
signal rise time to keep error below 2%.
Rule: Bandwidth > 5 x Highest Signal Frequency
AMPLITUDE (%)
100
0.1
0.5
1.0
FREQUENCY (GHZ)
FIG 01 /
Typical frequency response curve for a general purpose oscilloscope
2
Record length is the number of samples the oscilloscope
can digitize and store in a single acquisition. Since an
oscilloscope can store only a limited number of samples,
the waveform duration – or length of “time” captured – will
be inversely proportional to the oscilloscope’s sample rate.
A longer record length enables a longer time window to be
captured with high resolution.
Rule: Captured Time = (Record Length) / (Sample Rate)
Digital Channels and Spectrum
Analyzer Input
4
Today’s oscilloscopes offer more than just analog channels
for system-level troubleshooting of complex designs.
85
70.7
Record Length
Sample Rate
The faster an oscilloscope samples, the greater the
resolution and detail of the displayed waveform, and the less
likely that critical information or events will be lost. Tektronix
recommends at least 5X oversampling to ensure signal
details are captured and to avoid aliasing.
Rule: Sample Rate > 5 x (Highest Frequency Component)
6 | TEK.COM/OSCILLOSCOPE
• If you need to analyze a parallel bus or multiple serial
buses, the Tektronix MSO Series of mixed signal
oscilloscopes and MDO Series of mixed domain
oscilloscopes offer 16 digital channels and up to
4 analog channels for analyzing multiple signals at once.
• If you are working with RF signals, the Tektronix MDO
Series of mixed domain oscilloscopes offers a built-in
spectrum analyzer for time-correlated analysis of analog,
digital and RF signals.
5
Features and Analysis Capability
Tektronix oscilloscopes offer a range of features and analysis
capabilities. When choosing your scope, you should review
available triggers, waveform search tools, automated
measurements, and analysis packages such as serial bus
analysis, jitter and power analysis to ensure they meet
your needs.

LEARN HOW
to capture your signals accurately
with the “Be Sure to Capture the
Complete Picture” Technical Brief.
Be Sure to Capture the Complete Picture
Technical Brief
Tektronix Digital Real-time (DRT)
Sampling Technology
As an engineer or technician, you need the confidence and
trust that you’re accurately capturing the details of your signal.
If an oscilloscope’s sample rate isn’t fast enough, signal details
are lost, resulting in missing data and measurement errors.
The Solution…
Digital Real-time (DRT)
Sampling Technology
Digital real-time oscilloscopes acquire signals in real time,
capturing enough samples of the signal needed to faithfully
reconstruct a waveform in a single acquisition cycle.

Application Note
This guide will provide you with a fundamental glossary of
power measurement terms, explain the different options
available for making floating measurements, and highlight the
advantages and trade-offs of each option.
The most demanding floating measurement requirements are
found in power control circuits, such as motor controllers,
uninterruptible power supplies, and industrial equipment. In
such application areas, voltages and currents may be large
enough to present a hazard to users and/or test equipment.
When measuring floating high voltage signals there are many

IsoVu™ Technology
See What’s Been Hidden. Until Now
Common mode interference often causes engineers to design,
debug, evaluate, and optimize “blind.”
Revolutionary IsoVu™ technology uses optical communications and power-over-fiber for complete galvanic isolation. When combined with
an oscilloscope equipped with the TekVPI interface,
it is the first, and only, measurement system capable of
accurately resolving high bandwidth differential signals
in the presence of large common mode voltage.

CHOOSING YOUR SIGNAL GENERATOR
In electronic test and measurement, more often than not, a signal source is required to generate signals
that are not available unless externally provided. Below is a list of common features that you may want
to consider when choosing a signal generator for your application.
1
Sample (Clock) Rate
Sample rate, usually specified in terms of megasamples or
gigasamples per second, denotes the maximum clock or
sample rate at which the instrument can operate. The sample
rate affects the frequency of the main output signal. In general,
you should choose an instrument where the sampling frequency
is twice that of the highest spectral frequency component of
the generated signal to ensure accurate signal reproduction.
The maximum sample rate also determines the smallest time
increment that can be used to create waveforms. Typically this
figure is simply the result of the calculation: T = 1/F, where T
is the timing resolution in seconds and F is the sample rate.
2
Memory Depth (Record Length)
Memory depth, or record length, plays an important role in
signal fidelity because it determines how many points of data
can be stored to define a waveform. Deeper memory enables
you to store more waveform detail and/or more cycles of the
desired waveform.
3
Vertical (Amplitude) Resolution
Vertical resolution pertains to the binary word size, in bits,
of the instrument’s DAC, with more bits equating to higher
resolution. The vertical resolution of the DAC defines the
amplitude accuracy and distortion of the reproduced
waveform. Although more is better, there is a general
trade-off for most arbitrary waveform instruments; the
higher the resolution, the lower the sample rate.
4
Features and Capabilities
Tektronix signal generators offer a range of features and
output capabilities. When choosing your signal generator,
you should also evaluate standard waveforms, modulation
capabilities, output amplitude and waveform editing
software to ensure that the instrument meets your needs.

of ArbExpress with the

Introduction
Nearly all consumer products today have circuits or
devices that require the input of specific electronic
signals in order for the product to perform correctly.
This input could be as simple as the signal from an
automotive knock sensor, or as complex as a serial
data communication bus signal such as Controller
Area Network (CAN) or Inter IC Bus (I2C) signal.
When designing and testing these devices, a mechanism
is required to replicate the input signals. In many cases
it may also be useful to add noise or other anomalies
to the signals to test the devices under real world and
stress conditions. A common approach is to create
these signals using software applications or just
capture a live signal using an oscilloscope. This created
or captured waveform is then loaded in an Arbitrary/Function

Key items for consideration when choosing your Spectrum Analyzer.
1
Frequency Range
Of course, the analyzer chosen must cover all of the
frequencies you need to measure. Consider harmonics and
spurious signals when making your selection. For example,
your fundamental signal may be at 2.4 GHz, but perhaps you
will want to see up to 10 harmonics of the signal to meet all
the needs of your design.
2
Acquisition/Real-Time Bandwidth
In a real-time spectrum analyzer, this sets the maximum
bandwidth for guaranteed capture and triggering on brief
signals, and is also the limiting factor in modulation
measurements. For example, 802.11n signals require a minimum
acquisition bandwidth of 40 MHz so that all signal elements can
be acquired and demodulated. However, the entire operating
frequency of your signal of interest may need to be considered.
Also, wide band radar and electronic warfare signals often
require as much bandwidth as possible to completely capture
the full bandwidth of a signal, so it is very useful to use an
analyzer with the maximum available real-time analysis
bandwidth available, at 800 MHz.
3
Dynamic Range
This can be a complex subject. Your definition of dynamic
range may be highly specific. Consideration of Adjacent
Channel Power Ratio dynamic range, spurious-free dynamic
range in a particular frequency range, or harmonic distortion
specifications may or may not be important to your
application. For example, the RSA5100B has the best
Spurious Free Dynamic Range of any wide band analyzer
on the market, while the RSA306B has a much smaller
form factor and is great for making quick measurements.
So the RSA5100B may be more suitable for characterizing
things like power amplifiers or radar systems.

CHOOSING YOUR SOURCE MEASURE (SMU) INSTRUMENT
A SMU instrument integrates precision power supply and digital multimeter (DMM) capabilities in one instrument
while covering a wide dynamic range. SMUs source and measure simultaneously, making them ideal for
characterizing and testing semiconductors and other non-linear devices and materials.
System-Level Speed
or Throughput
Measurement Settling Time,
Offset Error, and Noise
The true measure of speed is how quickly a final
measurement or set of measurements (such as a suite
of current vs. voltage parameters) is returned to the PC
controller. This involves not only the number of readings/
second, but also range and function change times.
When choosing between instruments, compare the time it
takes a SMU to settle the specified offset error. This can be
seen in the “bumpiness” of the resulting data curve, which
indicates measurement noise; the smoother the data curve
the less measurement noise. SMUs having a fast, flat, and
noise-free settling time achieve more consistent results
during a series of measurements taken over time.
1
Sourcing Resolution
and Output Stability
2
An SMU’s usable maximum resolution depends on its overall
accuracy and the resolution of its analog-to-digital converter
(ADC). In general, the higher the resolution is, the higher the
bit count on the ADC and the higher the accuracy will be.

Cabling
Triaxial cables offer significant advantages over coaxial
cables when making low current measurements. Triaxial
cables have an extra shield that ensures lower leakage,
better response, and greater noise immunity.

CHOOSING YOUR POWER ANALYZER
Power analyzers are used for testing a wide range of power-electronics devices, from cell-phone chargers to 1000kW
grid-connected inverters. To help you choose the best analyzer for your application, consider the criteria below.
1
Number of Inputs
Power analyzers are available in both fixed configurations
(typically single-channel) and modular configurations.
If your application is limited to single-phase devices, a
single-channel analyzer may meet your needs. But if you
need to measure conversion efficiency on these devices,
a two-channel analyzer is required.
Compliance Testing
for Regulatory Standards
3
If your application requires you to know that your device is
compliant with regulatory standards such as IEC61000 for
harmonics, or ENERGY STAR™ for energy efficiency, you
need an analyzer capable of meeting the test requirements
specified by the standard. Even better, look for an analyzer
Testing of 3-phase devices of course requires a multi-phase supported by software applications that can automate

outputs. A four-channel analyzer can measure both input and
output simultaneously, to determine conversion efficiency.

Remote Communication
Will you have a need to control the analyzer remotely or transfer
measurement data to your PC? If so, you will want to look for an
instrument that features the communication ports you need.
Depending on the analyzer model, some ports may be standard
features or extra-cost options; be careful to choose the right
instrument configuration that meets your requirements.

CHOOSING YOUR DIGITAL MULTIMETER
To help you choose the appropriate digital multimeter for your application, the most common selection criteria
are listed below.
1
Resolution
Resolution refers to how fine a measurement a meter can
make. By knowing the resolution of a meter, you can
determine if it is possible to see a small change in your signal.
The terms digits and counts are used to describe a meter’s
resolution. A 6.5-digit multimeter can display 6 full digits
ranging from 0 to 9, and one “half” digit, which displays
only a 1 or is left blank. A 6.5-digit meter will display up
to 1,999,999 counts of resolution.
2
Accuracy
Accuracy is the largest allowable error that will occur under
specific operating conditions. In other words, it is an indication
of how close the DMM’s displayed measurement is to the
actual value of the signal being measured. Accuracy is usually
expressed as a percent of reading. An accuracy of one percent
of reading means that for a displayed reading of 100 volts, the
actual value of the voltage could be anywhere between 99
volts and 101 volts.
48 | TEK.COM/DIGITAL-MULTIMETER
3
Measurements
Digital multimeters are capable of making a variety of different
measurements. A basic DMM typically can measure voltage,
current and resistance. Other measurements commonly
supported are continuity and diode measurements. Continuity
is a quick go/no-go resistance test that distinguishes between
an open and a closed circuit. A diode test mode measures
the actual voltage drop across a junction. Other possible
measurement modes are frequency, period, temperature
and capacitance.
4
Extra Channel Capacity
Many of Keithley’s DMMs include the capability to add
a scanner accessory, enabling measurements on multiple
test points or devices.

Using the DMM Series to make simple and
accurate resistance measurements
Application Note
Using two wires to measure resistance is convenient, but
causes measurement error. You can virtually eliminate this
error by using four leads and a multimeter with separate
source and measure terminals. Unfortunately, adding
additional leads and connections makes the measurement
more complicated. You have additional leads to connect and
you may have to swap clips and probes as you change from
voltage to resistance. Now a new concept enables you to take
four-wire resistance measurements with just two leads.

Measurement Statistics and Histograms
with the Tektronix DMM4050 and DMM4040
Multimeters
Application Note
“What is the output voltage of the power supply?” This is
one of the most common measurements made with digital
multimeters. Similar questions arise about the frequency of
oscillators, the value of resistors, operating temperature, or the
input to a voltage controlled oscillator. It’s easy to use a digital
multimeter to take any of these readings.
But taking a single reading gives you only part of the story.
An equally important question is: “How stable is the output of
the power supply?” Understanding this, and other questions,
requires looking at measurement statistics. What is the average
value of the output? What is the standard deviation? The
Tektronix DMM4050 and DMM4040 multimeters offer integrated
analysis functions to help you answer these questions.

CHOOSING YOUR DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM
Designing the switching for an automated test system demands an understanding of the signals to be switched
and the tests to be performed. The following is a quick look at basic key decision points in the design of a
switching system.
1
Switch Configuration
Multiplex switching can be used to connect one instrument
to multiple devices or multiple instruments to a single
device. Multiplex switching permits multiple simultaneous
connections and sequential or non-sequential switch
closures. A matrix switch configuration is the most versatile
because it can connect multiple inputs to multiple outputs.
The isolated, or independent, switch configuration consists
of individual relays, often with multiple poles, with no
connections between relays. For scanner (or multiplex)
cards, the channel is used as a switched input in measuring
circuits or as a switched output in sourcing circuits. For
switch cards, each channel’s signal paths are independent
of other channels.
54 | TEK.COM/KEITHLEY-SWITCHING-AND-DATA-ACQUISITION-SYSTEMS
2
Relay Types
Three key relay types are used. Electromechanical relays
offer the widest power range and a good life and speed at
a relatively low cost. Reed relays cost more but offer less
contact wear and bounce for a better life and speed than
electromechanical. Solid-state relays cost still more, but
offer the best life and speed with no contact wear or bounce.
3
Systemization
Connection types found on switch cards include both screw
terminals and mass-terminated connectors. At the instrument
level, TSP-Link master/slave connection offers easy system
expansion between Series 3700A mainframes and Series
2600B SourceMeter instruments.
DATA ACQUISITION
PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
•6½-digit measurement engine
•Front panel DMM jacks
•300 volt isolation between channels and from any
channel to ground to maintain signal integrity
•Mass terminated or screw terminal connector

•Full per-channel card configurability
•Non-volatile memory buffer
•Choice of 12 switch/control plug-in modules
•KickStart, the PC-based instrument-control
software, provides an easy way to configure
channels and log data from long scans
Install up to five switch/control
modules in the 2750 mainframe
or up to two in the 2700 and 2701
mainframes.
2700 Series
The Series 2700 System Switch/Multimeter combines precision
measurement, switching, and control in a single, tightly integrated
enclosure for either rack-mount or bench-top applications used by data
loggers. The 2700 Series offers two- and five-slot models, as well as an
Ethernet-based model for high speed and long distance communication.
Screw terminals use oversize
connectors for easier, mistake-free
wiring. Removable terminals available
for some models.

CHOOSING YOUR SPECIALIZED LOW LEVEL INSTRUMENT
To help you choose the appropriate specialized low level instrument for your application, the most
common selection criteria are listed below, including helpful tips for determining the correct specialized
low level instrument for your requirements.
1
Resolution
Resolution means how fine a meter’s measurement is and
lets you determine if it’s possible to see a small change in
the signal. Resolution is described by digits and counts.
A 6.5-digit instrument can display six full digits ranging from
0 to 9, and one “half” digit that displays either a 1 or is left
blank. A 6.5-digit instrument can display up to 1,999,999
counts of resolution.
2
Low Current/High Resistance
Measurements
3
Accuracy
Accuracy is the largest allowable error that will occur under
specific operating conditions and is an indication of how
close the instrument’s displayed measurement is to the
actual value of the signal measured. Accuracy is typically
expressed as a percent of reading. For example, an accuracy
of 1% of reading means that, for a displayed reading of
100 volts, the actual value of the voltage is between
99 volts and 101 volts.
Low current/high resistance measurements evaluate the
insulation qualities of materials or components. Typically, a
voltage up to 500 or 1000 volts is applied and the resulting
current is measured, which can be in the range of picoamperes
(10E-12A) or lower. A digital multimeter may seem like the
right instrument for these measurements. But if the current
is below 1µA or the resistance is above 10MΩ, the correct
solution is an Electrometer or Picoammeter.
Low Voltage/Low Resistance
Measurements
4
Low resistance/low voltage measurements evaluate the
conduction or contact qualities of materials or components.
Typically, a current under 100mA but as low as 1µA is applied
and the resulting voltage is measured, which can be in the
range of microvolts and even nanovolts. For low voltage,
choose a Nanovoltmeter or low noise multimeter. For low
resistance, a Nanovoltmeter/current source combination
or switch/multimeter is the correct solution.

Comparison of the Model 2182A’s
DC noise performance with a
nanovolt/micro-ohmmeter’s.
2182A Nanovoltmeter
Results from a Model 2182A and
Model 6220 using the delta mode to
measure a 10mΩ resistor with a 20μA
test current.
The two-channel Model 2182A Nanovoltmeter is optimized for making
stable, low noise voltage measurements and for characterizing low
resistance materials and devices reliably and repeatably. It provides
higher measurement speed and significantly better noise performance
for voltage meters than alternative low voltage measurement solutions.

POWER SUPPLIES
CHOOSING YOUR PROGRAMMABLE POWER SUPPLY
To help you choose the appropriate Power Supply for your application, the most common selection
criteria are listed below.
Output Voltage, Current,
and Power
1
Ensure that the power supply has sufficient voltage output
and current output to meet your needs. Also ensure that the
supply can deliver the required power. Some power supply
V-I output characteristics offer a trade-off between maximum
voltage and maximum current (hyperbolic V-I output).
2
Setting Resolution and Accuracy
Voltage and current settings (sometimes called limits or
programmed values) each have resolution and accuracy
specifications associated with them. The resolution of these
settings determines the minimum increment in which the
output may be adjusted. The accuracy describes the extent to
which the value of the output matches international standards
and is typically expressed as ± (% of reading + offset).
3
Ripple and Noise
Spurious AC components on the output of a DC supply are
called ripple and noise. The term “ripple” refers to periodic AC
on the output. When viewed in the frequency domain, ripple
shows up as spurious responses. Unlike ripple, which is
periodic, noise is random. A power supply’s ripple and noise
is specified within a bandwidth, and should be specified for
both current and voltage.
4
Features and Programmability
When selecting your power supply, select the supply that has
the functionality you need. Consider a multiple-channel supply
as a cost-effective solution for applications requiring multiple
power sources. For maximum accuracy, consider supplies that
have remote sensing. When developing and testing batteryoperated devices, consider a special purpose batterysimulating supply.

Accurate Power Delivery
How to Interpret Linear Power Supply Specifications
Application Note
Introduction to Power Supply
Specifications
At first glance, a variable DC power supply appears to be a
fairly simple device. However, it is a sophisticated, accurate,
electrically-rugged workhorse. It has to reliably deliver stable,
precise, clean voltage and current, no matter its load --
resistive, inductive, capacitive, low-impedance, highimpedance, steady-state or variable. How well the power
supply fulfills this mission and where it hits its limits are defined
in its specifications. Choosing the right power supply for your
application requires a good understanding of how they are
specified.

The Series 2281S single-channel, precision DC supply and battery
simulator innovatively integrates the functions of high-precision power
supply, battery test, and battery simulation. It is able to analyze the DC
consumption of a device under test, test a battery and generate a battery
model based on the battery charging process, and simulate a battery based
on the battery model. The 2281S-20-6 can output power up to 20V and 6A
and sink current up to 1A.
Offers both dynamic and static
simulation modes to simulate battery
output.
The 2281S uses linear regulation to ensure low output noise and superior load current measurement sensitivity. A high resolution
color thin film transistor (TFT) screen displays a wide range of information on measurements. Soft-key buttons and a navigation
wheel combine with the TFT display to provide an easy-to-navigate user interface that speeds instrument setup and operation.
In addition, built-in plotting functions allow monitoring trends such as drift. These features provide the flexibility required for
both benchtop and automated test system applications. In addition, the 2281S provides a list mode, triggers, and other speed
optimization functions to minimize test time in automated testing applications.

DC ELECTRONIC LOADS SELECTION
DC ELECTRONIC LOADS
Keithley DC electronic loads are stand-alone, high accuracy instruments for
testing and for performance characterization of power conversion devices
such as power supplies, battery chargers, solar cells, DC/DC converters,
and other power components. Keithley electronic loads offer resolution as
low as 0.1mV and 0.01mA to enable detection of subtle changes in power
devices. The loads also have high bandwidth dynamic cycling and slew
rates as fast as 2.5A/µs to thoroughly test the transient performance of
power conversion devices.

CHOOSING YOUR DC ELECTRONIC LOAD
DC electronic loads have a wide range of performance to enable testing both static and dynamic performance of
power devices. Key capabilities to consider when selecting DC electronic loads are presented below.
Output Power, Output Voltage,
and Output Current
1
Ensure that the electronic load can dissipate the output power
that your devices can generate. Also make sure that the load
is rated for the maximum voltage and maximum current that
your devices or components can supply. It is essential that all
three parameters are factored in to your selection decision on
the dissipation requirements for your DC electronic load.
2
Electronic Load Operating Modes
All electronic loads offer a constant current (CC) operating
mode. Most also offer constant voltage (CV) and constant
power (CP) operating modes. Some also provide constant
resistance (CR) loading. More advanced electronic loads offer
battery discharge loading to test battery life characteristics
and LED simulation loading to test LED driver modules. Make
sure the electronic load you select has the operating modes
that you will need.
3
Dynamic Load Testing
If you need to test how your device performs with load
changes, ensure that the load you select has a dynamic mode
with a transition speed that is fast enough to test the specified
transient response of your device. Dynamic modes are
typically specified as the range of times that the load will be at
each of two current levels. The inverse of twice the shortest
time interval determines maximum cycling rate. Shorter time
intervals, with fast transitions between loading, stress the
power source and provide insight into its stability.
In addition to testing response to fast load changes, it can
also be important to determine whether your device can
respond at the rate that the load is changing. Ensure
electronic load slew rates, often specified in A/µs, are high
enough to test your device to its slew rate specifications.
Ensure these rates are programmable so the electronic load’s
range of slew rates meets your application needs.
4
Safety Testing
Verifying that your power source does not fail under fault
conditions is of critical importance. This is particularly true for
a short circuit load condition. Electronic loads can be set for
short circuits conditions with the load operating near 0V with
milliohm load impedance. Make sure the electronic load you
select has short circuit test features.

CHOOSING YOUR COUNTER/TIMER
To help you choose the right counter/timer for your needs, the most common selection criteria are listed
below, along with helpful tips for determining your requirements.
1
Frequency Resolution
The frequency resolution is the smallest change the counter/
timer can detect in closely spaced frequencies. The resolution
is influenced by the time setting on the instrument, i.e.,
longer time settings (averaged) will display more digits.
In general this feature is expressed as the number of digits
per second shown on the instrument’s display (e.g., 12
digits/s). More digits indicate a higher frequency resolution.
2
Time Resolution
For timing measurements this feature represents the
smallest “time” change that the instrument can detect.
Time resolution is sometimes described as “single shot”
resolution and is generally measured in picoseconds,
e.g., 50 ps. The lower the number, the better the time
resolution feature.
78 | TEK.COM/FREQUENCY-COUNTER
3
Time Base Stability
The internal time base establishes the reference against
which input signals are measured. The better the time base,
the more accurate your measurements can be. Most counters
employ a quartz crystal as the internal time base element,
which comes in 3 basic types; Room Temperature (RTXO),
Temperature Compensated (TCXO) and Oven Control (OCXO).
TCXO and OCXO devices are more stable and when used as
the internal time base, the instrument will consistently yield
accurate and reliable results.
4
Analysis Capability
When choosing your counter/timer, you should review
available analysis modes, such as trend plotting, measurement
statistics, histograms and modulation domain analysis to
ensure your needs are met.

Using the Tektronix FCA and MCA Series Timer/Counter/Analyzers
Application Note
“How am I supposed to observe signal integrity, jitter or even
drift issues in my frequency measurements with only a numeric
readout?” A simple numeric reading gives you only part of
the story. An equally important question is: “How stable is the
oscillator frequency in my circuit after several periods?”
Understanding this and other questions requires looking at
measurement statistics. What is the average value of my
signal? What is the standard deviation or Allan deviation of my
measurement? Tektronix FCA3000, FCA3100 and MCA3000
Series Timer/Counter/Analyzers offer integrated analysis
functions to help you quickly answer these questions.
