From the Back Cover

Electronic instruments: theory, applications, and real-world practice.

  • The practical guide to electronic test and measurement: instruments and techniques, digital and analog
  • Measurement techniques for maximizing accuracy
  • Meters, signal sources, oscilloscopes, frequency counters, power supplies, spectrum analyzers, network analyzers, logic analyzers, and more
  • Includes many circuit models and conceptual block diagrams

Electronic Test Instruments: Analog and Digital Measurements, Second Edition offers a thorough, unified, up-to-date survey of the entire field of electronic instrumentation: instruments and techniques, digital and analog.

Robert A. Witte first introduces basic measurement theory, then covers each type of commonly used electronic test equipment. Using detailed examples, Witte shows how these systems are applied in real-world applications, introducing core functionality and showing how to choose the right instrument for each task. This new second edition has been updated throughout, reflecting the latest technologies and presenting extensive new coverage of digital oscilloscopes and power supplies.

  • Introduces essential measurement theory and explains its relationship to practical measurements
  • Covers all mainstream test instruments, including meters, signal sources, oscilloscopes, frequency counters, power supplies, spectrum analyzers, network analyzers, logic probes, and logic analyzers
  • Presents circuit models and conceptual block diagrams that clarify the behavior of complex circuits and instruments
  • Explains key commonalities and differences between digital and analog instrumentation from the user's standpoint
  • Introduces advanced circuit concepts and techniques that help users achieve higher quality measurements
  • Illuminates important concepts such as loading effect, grounding, and bandwidth

About the Author

ROBERT A. WITTE is an Engineering Manager with Agilent Technologies (formerly Hewlett-Packard), where he is responsible for the design and development of electronic test and measurement equipment. He has taught electrical engineering courses as an adjunct professor at two universities and has written two books and numerous magazine articles about test and measurement instrumentation.

Format: Paperback
This book does a good job of covering the most common pieces of test equipment....DMMs, function generators, signal generators, scopes, power supplies, spectrum analyzers, logic analyzers, etc. It supports these instrument topics with the right level of theory and application information.

This book is just the ticket for the engineer or technician who requires an overview of all the basic test instruments used to measure electronic products or devices. The book starts out with basic measurement theory for dc and ac and pulsed signals. Then introduces basic instruments like voltmeters, ammeters and ohmmeters. Then he dives in to more advanced instruments like signal generators, oscilloscopes and spectrum analyzers. The great thing about this book is that the author uses plentiful examples when explaining the theory behind the various measurements. Use of oscilloscopes and spectrum analyzers are major sections in the book, which is good, because these are used so frequently in the "real world". Highly recommended for someone just getting into engineering design and measurement.

I stand in applause for the author's book. For me, Robert Witte's main goal wasn't just to teach the reader how to use (modern) test equipment, but to give the reader some of the knowledge/intuition that he has gained throughout his career. Each chapter is planted with little "gold nuggets"--derived from real life application (not a text book experience). I say this with much joy. As an engineer, I've been exposed to many, many engineers with varying experiences and knowledge on using test equipments. But none have demonstrated the ability to collate his/her ideas on this subject matter of great importance as the author demonstrates. After all, when you're dealing in the nano or pico range, it's nice to be intimately aware of your measurement device and its inherent errors. I wish I could meet the author and shake his hand.
