    Here's a fun little circuit to turn your analog oscilloscope into a video monitor, using the XY mode and Z-axis modulation. Most digital scopes can't do this because they lack the Z-axis input.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FYF5uhCzAM

    Can you post a printable schematic for that, I think my students would get a kick out of that.

    That PDF isn't working for me. I get a blank page.

    Guess I'll try a different PDF reader.

    Got it.

    Nitro PDF failed to open this correctly.

    Many people make videos but few do it as well as you did. Starting from describing the basic concept, to the detailed schematic and then a thorough treatise of the TOO, followed by the tour of your lab using the scope, it was excellent. I can see you've done this before because your narration didn't even hiccup! ;)

    Be sure to check the notes below the video - I made some component changes to the circuit to improve the linearity, clarity and contrast. They're described in the "notes" that appear below the video on the YouTube page.
