Title: Compensation of Random and Systematic Timing Errors in Sampling Oscilloscopes
Published: December 01, 2006
Abstract: In this paper, a method of correcting both random and systematic timebase errors using measurements of only two quadrature sinusoids made simultaneously with a waveform of interest is described. The authors estimate the fundamental limits to the procedure due to additive noise and sampler jitter and demonstrate the procedure with some actual measurements.
