D.E.V.I.C.E. is an encyclopedia of terms used by manufacturers of test and measurement equipment. T&M Atlantic created this service to better explain the functionality of instruments it offers, and to highlight the latest developments in the world of T&M Atlantic. We are using such tools as flash and animation to bring words and pictures to life and to create not just an understanding but also an appreciation for technology that goes into the design of every instrument.

A type of automatic measurements. The true Root Mean Square voltage over the entire waveform.
Pk-Pk (Vp): amplitude (peak-to-peak) voltage Max (Ma): the maximum voltage
Min (Mi): the minimum voltage
Vtop (Vt): rectangular pulse voltage peaks
Vbase (Vb): base voltage square wave
Vamp (Va): voltage amplitude (Vtop - Vbase)
Mean (V): the average value of the voltage
Cycrms (Vk): rms voltage over one period
(Vmax-Vtop)/Vamp->Overshoot (Os): Emission measurements at the top of a percentage of the amplitude of the square wave (Vmax-Vtop) / Vamp
(Vmin-Vbase)/Vamp->Preshoot (Ps): Emission measurements at the base as a percentage of the amplitude of the rectangular pulse (Vmin-Vbase) / Vamp
