What is a “Virtual Oscilloscope”?

An oscilloscope is a device to visualize oscillations (waves). The “virtual oscilloscope” is a free, interactive Shockwave simulation of an oscilloscope. You can use all buttons, wheels and connectors as if you were using a real oscilloscope. Signals are displayed on the virtual screen, and you will even hear the clicking and ratcheting of the wheels and switches. You also get explanations on every element of the device.

The oscilloscope simulation shown on this website is based on the HAMEG HM203-6 20 MHz oscilloscope by Hameg GmbH in Frankfurt/Main, Germany. Hameg GmbH is in no way associated with the software provided. Neither is Hameg GmbH responsible for the content of the simulation software, nor did it have a share in developing the simulation. The HAMEG HM203-6 oscilloscope only was the inspiration for developing the simulation, because it is very well suited for this purpose. Any quality limitations of the simulation software do not represent limitations of the real oscilloscope. The real HAMEG oscilloscope works impeccable in all areas tested.
