The Lithuanian capital is still the home of oscilloscope development. This pictorial essay takes you through the development of oscilloscopes behind the former Iron Curtain.
Every so often, we hear about oscilloscopes and test equipment built in the Soviet Union and later Russia, but most of the oscilloscopes come from Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. How did Vilnius become the center of life for oscilloscopes in Eastern Europe? Learn the story from Jakovas Rososkis and Aleksandr Denisov who are still involved in the design and manufacture of oscilloscopes in Vilnius.
Through a pictorial essay, Rososkis and Denisov take you on a tour of oscilloscopes that came from the Soviet Union. Their company is what remains of the oscilloscope business in Vilnius, but engineers are still designing and building modern USB oscilloscopes for UK manufacturer Pico Technology.
