That beast we call the oscilloscope has come a long way over the years. The first one I ever used was a huge Tektronix behemoth that had vacuum tubes and rolled around on a "ScopeMobile". The bandwidth was barely above audio and it only had 2 channels. Now I use a handheld digitizing scope with 4 channels, 200 MHz bandwidth, and all sorts of bells and whistles. Watching the evolution of test equipment is one of the best things about being a technician.

I agree with you Steve. We are lucky to do what we do.

There are indeed all kds of scopes these days. I have some low performance ( butmgoodmenu for audio) scopes that are extremely low cost. Evan one from Oscium that uses the iPad as the CRT!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
