    I'm not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question but here goes......

    I've been able to purchase a Tektronix TDS 2012C oscilloscope.

    Its my first time using a scope. Could anybody please explain to me what all the data inside the red box is about. This would help me greatly.

    Thanks a lot -JDR04

    One of the nice things about digital scopes is that you can take measurements straight off the screen. With control of the cursor you can measure time differences, delta-t.
    If this is the period of a repetitive waveform, then the reciprocal is its frequency.

    You can also select a voltage mode and measure voltage differences.
