Many modern oscilloscopes offer the ability to zoom in on select portions of a waveform trace, allowing users a much more detailed look at whatever anomalies may (or may not) be present. Zooming is a handy feature on any oscilloscope, but it's even handier if you happen to be using a Teledyne LeCroy HDO. These instruments bring 12 bits of vertical resolution to the table for even more detail and cleaner, crisper waveforms than any legacy 8-bit oscilloscope.
So, without further delay, here's a short tutorial video on how to implement zoom traces on an HDO.

In a previous post, we provided some basic information about oscilloscope probes, including a brief survey of the different types and what can happen when the probe is connected to a DUT. In this installment, let's continue along those lines and take a closer look at passive probes.
