@CEO >>  so the possibilities has become enormous in terms of adding more features on it.

That is true but notice that with the complexity comes some lost productivity. There are some features in these scopes which you may need three menus to get to that many will never use. I do hope besides these complex systems, the strip-down ones will be made for some people that want simplicity.

The most important tool for an EE engineer but which very few really know how to use. Scopes are not computers with so much sophistication that if you do not stay focussed, the work will be understanding the scope instead of the experiment. Any learning will surely help.

Hello MeasurementBlues.  Nice handle.  I am a semiconductor test engineer, so I have to carry the scope to the test floor and normally place it on the test head to make my measurements.  So, it needs to be a small portable unit.  I wish I could just have an instrument that would plug into my USB on my laptop, but I don't think it would be possible to have the speed I need.

daleste, In what way is size and iseue for you? Bench footprint, size of screen, height?

Oscilloscopes has got evolved a lot and they are no more a standalone analog device, its all about a computer running an OS behind with high-speed sampler hardware installed, so the possibilities has become enormous in terms of adding more features on it.

To keep up in this industry, it is great to have some help from our measurement instrument suppliers.  It is always a trade off of cost versus capability for oscilloscopes.  In my needs, size is also a constraint.  This could be a way to learn what is coming.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
