Generation Z—those who were born between the mid-1990s and early 2000s—are more often turning to trade schools to avoid the skyrocketing student debt crisis and hone skills that translate directly into jobs, from electrical engineering to cosmetology. While the power of trade unions has dwindled, and societal value still favors more elite professions, young students are finding themselves drawn to stable paychecks in fields where there’s an obvious need.
If you’ve ever wanted to recreate your oscilloscope screen, it’s possible in Excel. This example re-graphs both analog and digital waveforms. And this is how to do it:
First, log data. Then, email that data to a device that has Excel. The data log will be in *.csv file format.
Here’s the excel file that was used to graph the waveforms. Please use it as a reference. The analog is a bit easier than the digital. The digital waveforms require Rows 4-8. Because, Excel isn’t smart enough to translate hexadecimals and you are.
Plot the graph. Now, you can both post-process the data and re-visualize it for your viewing pleasure!!
Analog – Post Processed (via Excel)
Digital – Post Processed (via Excel)
