What is an oscilloscope?
Oscilloscopes are test instruments that display electronic signals (either waves or pulses) on a screen. It creates its own time base against which signals can be measured, and displayed frames can be frozen for visual inspection. It is sometimes abbreviated as CRO, for cathode-ray oscilloscope, or commonly called scope or O-scope.
