Fast Fourier transform (FFT) is an analysis method that let's you dissect complex waveforms and determine out of which frequencies they were composed. This function is often present on an oscilloscope and in this blog I will show a basic application of it.
Electrolytic capacitors are known for their terrible accuracy. Just by reading the value on the package is often not enough to know their true capacitance. In this blog I will show how to measure the real value by using a scope.
