#190068 - Novel Oscilloscope Techniques
Hello Everyone,

I recently dug up an old lab report from one of my undergraduate classes wherein we learned a novel use for an oscilloscope. It is a technique for measuring the values of reactive components (C of a capacitor or L of an inductor), even characterizing them over a frequency band. Anyway, I was thinking of writing up a short article on this forgotten technique, but frankly I'm not so certain it's as forgotten as I think. As a pseudo-metric of potential interest in such an article, am I the only one or have any of you forgotten how to do this as well?

Also, just out of curiosity, or just for the conversation, what are some of your favorite novel techniques for the bench?

Thanks for the input,
