Learn from an experimental physicist

Nov 07, 2014 learning electronics oscilloscope

The stand-alone bench oscilloscope in practice is better than cheap USB ones.
The later normally has very poor front-end electronics, low sampling rate and narrow bandwidth. Picotech provides high-end USB oscilloscopes. Given the same price, USB ones provides higher precision, more memory, more functions and better data logging, but less bandwidth and sampling rate than bench oscilloscopes.
