      Confronting Measurement Uncertainty in Signal Generation, Part 3: Waveform Sampling Images

      Eric Hsu 2019.05.15

      In the digital world, a digital electronic system that is designed to process signals does not treat the signals continuously as they are in reality. Instead, the system uses “sample” to indicate the
