Oscilloscope Simulation

How to Get Started

  • If your Firefox browser is blocking the execution of Shockwave Flash, use this guide to circumvent the Firefox developers’ dictatorship: Click here
  • Turn the oscilloscope on with the “power” button, before you start a measurement.
  • Operate the device as you would use a real one. You can attach (virtual) cables, turn wheels, move switches and push buttons, combine signals with the “Dual” and “Add” functions and more.
  • If you own a sound card, turn your speakers on, because the simulation contains the original sounds of switches and wheels.

Download Time

  • with DSL ca. 10 s
  • with 2 ISDN channels ca. 40 s
  • with a 56 K modem ca. 1 min. 30 s
  • with a 28.8 modem ca. 3 min.


The simulation features context sensitive help. To obtain help, doubleclick a wheel or button.

  1. It’s awesome. I love it 🙂

    Will use it to teach the basics of wave display, time base and amplitude via V/division and time/division to iGCSE Physics students in China. We only have one oscilloscope!

    Would be great if I could set the input voltage and frequency too.
