Direct and Alternating Voltages the Oscilloscope Required Equipment 1 A Tektronix TDS3024B Digital Phosphor Oscilloscope 2 Function Generator 3 DC Power Supply 4 Potentiometer 5 Various resistors Introduction The aim of this lab is to familiarize you with the TDS3024B 200Mhz oscilloscope that you will use throughout the course Where earlier oscilloscopes used beams of electrons in cathode ray tubes to paint voltage waveforms this Digital Phosphor Oscilloscope DPO uses fast Analog to Digital Converters ADC s to take samples of the voltage as a function of time store it in memory and then display it on a color LCD screen This fully digital design results in a lighter instrument with extensive capabilities due to its fully digital design Getting Familiar with the Oscilloscope Each DPO comes equipped with a Reference Manual that we will use to become familiar with some of its features Turn on the oscilloscope and observe as it goes through its setup procedures Copy its IP address in your lab notebook This will be a series of four numbers with a format like 35 122 113 64 Turn on your function generator pulser to output sinusoidal waves with amplitude 1 V and frequency 1 MHz and connect the output to both Channels 1 and 2 of the DPO using a coaxial cable Following the instructions in the reference manual exercise the following features of the DPO until you become familiar with them Quick Menu Simple measurements of waveforms can be performed with this feature without resort to more advanced features Acquire Menu This menu controls the data acquisition features of the DPO that are activated by pushing the Run Stop button The status of the acquisition is indicated on the upper left hand corner of the screen Cursor Menu This gives you control over both horizontal and vertical cursors used in making timing and voltage measurements Display Menu The features are self explanatory Get familiar with the XY Display by going to the Triggered XY mode What kind of display would you
