Title: Terminology for High-Speed Sampling-Oscilloscope Calibration
Published: December 01, 2006
Abstract: We discuss procedures for calibrating high-speed sampling oscilloscopes at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the terminology associated with those calibrations. The discussion clarifies not only the calibration procedures, but how to use the calibrations to perform traceable oscilloscope measurements.
