Applying Selective Averaging to Waveform Acquisitions

Figure 1: Using pass/fail testing to average only those
waveforms which are inside the tolerance mask
In the course of using an oscilloscope, there are likely to be times when you'd like to separate pulses based on wave shape or some parametric value and average only those pulses that meet some criteria. Teledyne LeCroy's oscilloscopes, and others, provide pass/fail testing using masks and/or parametric readings to qualify waveforms before they're added into an average or other processing function. Let's take a look at how this works on a Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscope.

Video: Vertical Controls on the HDO Oscilloscopes

Here's another in our continuing series of tutorial videos. This time, we'll review the use of the vertical controls on a Teledyne LeCroy HDO oscilloscope. These controls facilitate positioning and scaling of waveforms vertically on the oscilloscope's display. Note that although we're demonstrating these controls on an HDO, you'd be rather hard pressed to find an oscilloscope from any manufacturer without a volts/div and vertical offset control. Thus, this video is applicable to whatever oscilloscope you have on your bench.

There are quite a few tutorial videos for a broad range of Teledyne LeCroy products on our YouTube channel. Head on over whenever you need a refresher!
