re:What is the difference between an equivalent time scope and a real-time scope?Best Answer!
Equivalent or Repetitive Scope - Instead of capturing an entire waveform on each trigger, it measures only the instantaneous amplitude of the waveform at the . Real-time scope - Captures an entire waveform on each trigger. The sample rate of the scopes A/D determines the sample spacing and the acquisition memory sampling instant. The input signal is sampled only once per trigger event. Upon the next trigger event, the scope adds a small delay and samples another point. After many triggers, the input waveform is reconstructed on the display screen.
