I'm in the market for an oscilloscope. I started reading the Oscilloscope Buyer's Guide: What to look for when choosing an oscilloscope.
In the section labeled as Resolution and Accuracy, how do you get 8 mV per step with an 8 bit resolution?
Also, regarding real time and equivalent time sampling rates, if I have a repetitive signal (e.g. a 1 kHz tone) that is switched off suddenly at intermittent times, do I give priority to the real time sampling rate when picking an oscilloscope?
