Using the test equipment to observe the operation of a microcontroller circuit board

Here's the first video showing how to setup and use the oscilloscope to measure key behaviours of the PCB.

Measuring voltage with the oscilloscope.

Basic measurements with the oscilloscope.

Various menu items on the oscilloscope to measure frequency, voltage range, and many others.

Multimeter checking for shorts and to measure voltage variation with PWM.

Measuring the current flowing through a motor using the multimeter connected in series with the motor.

And we also measured the capacitance of two different capacitors (10nF and 10uF), again it's interesting to see the tolerance with these, one is 5% out...the other 22% out!!
