Working with waveforms in mixed-domain oscilloscopes

Waveform generators generally contain a library of common waveforms, which can be individually accessed and displayed by running a BNC cable to an active analog channel input in an oscilloscope. Most oscilloscopes have, available as an option, an internal arbitrary function generator (AFG), which permits the user to create an endless variety of waveforms and display and save them to internal memory or to an external medium. These internal AFGs also have a selection of pre-made waveforms, although not as extensive as in the stand-alone bench-type waveform generators.

The Tektronix MDO3000 Series oscilloscope’s internal AFG has a library of 13 permanent waveforms. Shop the series here.
