Oscilloscope articles by Arthur Pini

- April 29, 2016

Most electrical engineers use oscilloscopes on a regular basis, which makes them perhaps the most written-about piece of test equipment. Still, it seems you can never learn enough about how to use an oscilloscope. Former Teledyne LeCroy engineer Arthur Pini knows a thing or two about oscilloscopes and modular digitizers. He's written so many articles for EDN that he deserves his own collection. Here are EDN articles by Arthur Pini.


Analyze noise with time, frequency, and statistics

  • 05.02.2017

Random processes such as noise and jitter are associated with all electronic circuit components. Noise can be characterized using digital oscilloscopes utilizing tools that operate in time, frequency and statistical domains.Read More...


Vector signal analysis in an oscilloscope

  • 02.07.2017

See how a well-appointed oscilloscope can play the role of a complete vector-modulated-signal analysis system and experimentation laboratory.Read More...


Oscilloscope rise time and noise explained

  • 11.07.2016

Arthur Pini responds to an EDN reader who asked if the traditional relationship between rise time and bandwidth still applies. He also explains the relationship between rms and peak noise.Read More...
