Explore several common oscilloscope triggering modes. Learn about rising and falling edge triggers, what happens when your trigger is out of range, and how to capture both periodic signals and burst waveforms on your o-scope.
- When using an oscilloscope to look at a signal…that's constantly changing,…we need to direct that oscilloscope…to capture the part of the signal that we're interested in,…to stabilize the display so we can actually see it.…Oscilloscopes have a trigger mechanism,…which controls when it should measure…and display the signal.…If you think of an oscilloscope like a photographer…that's capturing snapshots of what a signal looks like…at certain moments in time,…the trigger controls when the photographer…takes the picture.…And just like a how a photographer might wait…for a specific thing to happen before taking a photo,…like waiting for all the people you're photographing…to smile at the same time,…we can tell the oscilloscope…what signal feature it should look for…by configuring the trigger type.…
I can view the list…of available trigger types on my oscilloscope…by pressing the Menu button in the trigger settings…and then pressing this blue button…to expand the list of trigger types.…For this video, I'll be using an edge trigger,…
