This week I have released the first in a new series of videos I will be doing on test equipment on the channel, the first was an overview of the Rigol DS1202Z-E Oscilloscope.

Scopes used to the tool of choice for the lab tech and well out side the reach of the average person however today they are cheaper and more accessible than ever. You can now get a feature rich scope for under £/$350 helping you to improve your electronics diagnostics and repairs.
