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.

2007-05-04 About FFT spectrum analyzers
FFT Spectrum Analyzers, such as the SR760, SR770, SR780 and SR785, take a time varying input signal, like you would see on an oscilloscope trace, and compute its frequency spectrum. Fourier's theorem states that any waveform in the time domain can be represented by the weighted sum of sines and cosines. The FFT spectrum analyzer samples the input signal, computes the magnitude of its sine and cosine components, and displays the spectrum of these measured frequency components.
