ABSTRACTS
Oscilloscope is electronic test instrument that we can use to observe the different of signal voltages, change of an electrical signal over time like time and voltage to describe a shape which is continuously graphed against a calibrated scale. By using this tool we able to analyze the waveform for such as amplitude, frequency, rising time, time interval, distortion and others. In this project we are going to use PIC32MX450F256L (Microchip Technology) board to work as oscilloscope and help us to convert the analog signals to digital signals and the waveform will be collect and analyze on the computer display the desired waveform on the screen for us to observe.

Oscilloscope measure voltage waves form. One cycle of a waveform is the portion of the wave that repeats. Wave form is a graphic representation of a wave. A voltage waveform is shows time on the horizontal axis and voltage on the vertical axis. Waveform shapes will show a great deal about a signal. Voltage has changed will affect the changing height of the waveform. If time is flat horizontal line, there is fix length of time. Straight diagonal lines mean a linear change rise or fall of voltage at a steady rate. There were four types waves (sine waves, square and rectangular waves, triangle and sawtooth waves and lastly is step and pulse
