R&S scopes and vertical sensitivity
MeasurementBlues   7/1/2013 2:02:22 AM

R&S scopes differ from competitor's scopes in one crucial way: the user interface. That is, others have kept dedicated knobs for vertical sensitivity. R&S uses a single know with color-coded rig around it to indicate which channel is in use. Does that work for you or do you prefer dedicated V/div knobs?

Yes, but I'd say the bigger UI differentiator is their strong embrace of the touchscreen, not the 1-knob issue!

@anon1416625, Agilent also has touch screen scopes now.

Go into your profile and change your nickname, unless you don't want us to know who you really are.

I already had twitter and LinkedIn info in the system, so it liked me. What if you don't have them? Are you stuck?
