Oscilloscope users consistently rate bandwidth, sample rate, and memory depth as the three most important specifications. This application note will focus oscilloscope selection considerations associated with acquisition memory. Selecting an oscilloscope with deep memory can result in significant troubleshooting and debug time saving.
It's helpful to assess the goodness and quality of oscilloscope memory depth, versus just looking at a single figure. Understanding memory depth attributes and benefits ensures selection of a specific oscilloscope matches the desired needs and applications.
