Electromagnetic interference (EMI) troubleshooting

With the Spectrum View option, each analog channel on the 4 Series MSO can show you a time domain waveform, a spectrum or both. The time and frequency plots are synchronized to help you quickly determine which signals are the victims and which are the aggressors.
