Spectrum Analyzer Operation of the DI-770 Oscilloscope

The common way to examine electrical signals is in the time domain using an oscilloscope. The time domain is used to determine amplitude, time and phase information, which is necessary to describe the behavior of an electrical system. A spectrum analyzer allows incremental evaluation by allowing waveform information to be displayed in the frequency domain. This approach displays in a histogram fashion all the frequencies and their respective magnitudes that comprise a complex time domain waveform.
