Investigating measuring jitter using only a mid-range scope's histogram.
Jitter is one of the most common things we need to measure these days. I investigated how far I can get using only a mid-range scope's histogram. Reasonably far, it turns out.
We've discussed a lot of jitter here at Scope Junction, ranging from gigabit data to megahertz clocks (see some links below), and in most cases, one expects to need a high-end scope to make meaningful measurements. But with a midrange Tek MDO scope at my disposal, I wanted to see what measurements I could make with it, even though it doesn't explicitly support jitter analysis.
