There are two kinds of digital oscillosocpes: sampling and real-time. Real-time scopes attempt to capture a signal one sampme at a time and reconstruct it one sample after another. Thus, real-time scopes can work on any waveform. Sampling scopes sample at a slow rate but have very high bandwidth. Signals must be repetitive because the scope samples at different points on each cyle then reconstructs the waveform.
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.
