Voltage cursor adapter. Measure the voltage values of waveforms accurately and easily on your oscilloscope by superimposing horizontal cursor lines on the top and bottom of a waveform.

3-D oscillography (stereophonic images of waveforms) can be achieved using a dual-trace oscilloscope, a pair of simple lenses, a dual 15-volt power supply, and a handful of ordinary electronic components.

Sweep/function generator. Build this sweep generator to create sine, triangle, and square waves. Also provides a horizontal sweep for an oscilloscope.
