The 12-bit resolution in the Y-axis gives the ADC-212/3 the ability to detect changes as small as 0.024 per cent. Conventional 8-bit oscilloscopes only have the ability to detect changes greater than 0.4%, but precision analogue and audio engineers require the ability to detect signal changes of less than 0.1 per cent.
Most digital storage oscilloscopes have front end amplifiers designed for high bandwidth, these products are no exception. Unlike most oscilloscopes however, the front end amplifiers also exhibit very low levels of noise and distortion. This low noise and distortion, combined with the 12 bit resolution gives an 80 dB dynamic range for the spectrum analyser.
The ADC-212/3 PC based oscilloscope / spectrum analyser is our recommended product for automotive diagnostics and fault finding. It is ideal for viewing and testing most automotive signals and sensors. Many examples are included in our library of automotive waveforms.
