Digital Signal

While the digital signal, as with analog, is 1 volt peak-to-peak, some of the components and measurements within that 1 volt are displayed and measured differently on a digital scope. One volt is divided into a thousand units, each referred to as a millivolt, expressed as mV (Figure 14.1). On the graticule, 1 volt of digital video is displayed from –.3 volts (or –300 mV) to a peak of .7 volts (or 700 mV) for a total of 1 volt. Active digital video is displayed between ...
