When to Use an Oscilloscope vs a DMM


Choose the right tool for testing and troubleshooting

DMMs and oscilloscopes are two of the most widely used electrical measurement devices. Both are excellent for testing and diagnosing circuits, but it can be confusing to decide which one is the optimal tool for the job. Join Keithley applications engineer, Liz Makley, for a webinar on when to use each of these fundamental test instruments. 

You will learn:

  • What’s the difference between a DMM and an oscilloscope?
  • Why use a DMM?
  • Why use an oscilloscope?
  • Test examples demonstrating when to choose a DMM and when to choose an oscilloscope

This webinar is great for engineers who are looking to get more from their bench instruments or who are preparing to outfit their bench and want to understand which tools to purchase.
