Test Equipment Principles

A fully equipped electronics laboratory has the entire gamut of test gear from spectrum analysers and oscilloscopes to DVMs, insulation testers, variable power supplies, signal generators, and component analysers. Sooner or later, you will have to bite the bullet and buy some test equipment. Your purchase might range from a tatty used moving coil meter found at an amateur radio fair to a shiny new oscilloscope. Either way, your money is a finite resource and you will want maximum bang per buck.
