Finding hidden signal errors with your oscilloscope has never been easier! Discover the first-of-its-kind Fault Hunter capability that characterizes your signal and automatically finds errors. Fault Hunter helps you perform root cause analysis and save hours of test time with just a few clicks.

Troubleshooting, testing design ideas, or performing quality assurance is time-consuming. If you do not know what you are looking for in a problematic signal, you could spend hours trying to find it. Learn how to automatically find faults in positive & negative glitches, runts and slow-rising and slow-falling edges.

Key Learning Points: 

  • Glitch (positive or negative) is a pulse-width trigger that focuses on a pulse of a width that is thinner than normal pulses.
  • Runt (positive or negative) is a pulse-width trigger that focuses on height rather than width. A trace that does not reach the expected height triggers on the runt or the smaller trace.
  • Slow-rising or slow-falling edges are triggers related to the slew rate of the signal.
