Multi-frequency Capacitance and Inductance Measurements

Get information on measurement methods and theoretical accuracy, as well as two test examples to introduce capacitor/inductor/equivalent series resistance (ESR) measurement using an oscilloscope and a function generator. 

Comprehensive debug with
just one instrument

Our new application note shows how you can use an oscilloscope and a function generator to make capacitance and inductance measurements.

With its optional 50 MHz arbitrary / function generator, the 2 Series MSO Mixed Signal Oscilloscope provides both the stimulus and the measurement in just one instrument. It’s also equipped with these other integrated options for all your debugging needs:

  • Optional serial bus decode and trigger for common buses including SPI, I2C, CAN and LIN
  • Optional 16-channel MSO
  • Optional 4-bit pattern generator with pre-defined voltage levels
  • Digital voltmeter and frequency counter
  • USB 2.0 and ethernet ports for flexibility to connect to a network, PC, or other test equipment
