Electronic technology permeates our lives. Millions of people use electronic devices such as cellphones, TVs and computers on a daily basis. As electronic technology has advanced, the speeds at which these devices operate have accelerated. Today, most devices use high-speed digital technologies.

Engineers need the ability to accurately design and test the components in their high-speed digital devices. The instrumentation engineers use to design and test their components must be particularly well suited to deal with high speeds and high frequencies. An oscilloscope is an example of just such an instrument.
