How do I run a Signal Path Compensation (SPC) on an DPO/MSO/MDO4000 Series oscilloscope?


How do I run a Signal Path Compensation (SPC) on an DPO/MSO/MDO4000 Series oscilloscope?


Signal Path Compensation (SPC) should be run anytime you are getting DC offsets in your signals, or your scope has moved locations and might have changed temperature, or if it's been more then a month since your last SPC. This is a standard procedure, kind of like mantinance on your car. The following video demonstrates this procedure on the MDO4000 Series scope and also shows the difference of the RF channel. 

NOTE: This procedure is the same for all MSO/DPO3000 and MSO/DPO2000 Series oscilloscopes.
