Oscilloscope Tutorial

Afrotechmods shows us what an Oscilloscope is and how to use it… “An oscilloscope is the most important piece of electronic test equipment you can buy after a multimeter. They allow you to see, in great detail, what is going on with all the voltages in your circuit. If you ever work with audio circuits, timers, microcontrollers, radios, or anything isn’t DC, an oscilloscope will help you get the job done.” Read more for part 2 and 3.

The first video shows you where you can buy an oscilloscope and what to look for when buying, and the second two videos show you how to use it.
