Scope manufacturers closely guard their ADC “secret sauce”. However, they all have one thing in common: ADCs that are built up from multiple interleaved ADCs that together comprise the overall device. At least that was true until the recent development of an oscilloscope that defies convention by only using one ADC to significantly reduce distortion.
Imagine if all of your instruments had the ability to connect to a WiFi network or act as a WiFi router instead of a wired IO interface. Considering this, here are some ways it could make your testing life easier.
