The Creative Lab Scope Technique Page
By Tom Roberts
This site will be very basic and will grow very slowly as time allows. Mostly it will be automotive related, specifically automotive diagnostics and use of the digital storage oscilloscope. I hope you enjoy it. Feel free to e-mail me with comments or suggestions. The purpose of this site is to share information that will benefit the industry as a whole, and help individual technicians be more effective. Feel free to use this material, but please credit the source as "Autonerdz.com".

Some of the scope images in the following technical articles are scope captures from a Fluke 97. The software used to download and process the data is AES Wave by Automotive Electronic Services. The high resolution captures were made with a PicoScope PC based DSO.
I often get asked about information sources. Since accurate systems descriptions and wiring diagrams are an integral part of Creative Lab Scope Technique, it is essential to have an information system that is as accurate and complete as possible. There are many information sources and we may have to use more than one. But only one stands out as the single most comprehensive factory source information system available. ALLDATA
