The Pointer Asks: When these prototype devices become commercialised/productionised, how is the signal processing aspect of the oscilloscope built in to the device?
I read a lot of research papers that use large and expensive equipment, such as oscilloscopes, to do their signal processing. Oscilloscopes offer high sampling rate and bandwidth, which makes them good for signal processing applications. Also, nearly all of these research papers involve work in a lab (bench-top work), so the convenience benefit of using an oscilloscope, rather than designing, and having manufactured, a custom PCB, is clear. However, when it comes to commercialised/production devices, we often require serious signal processing to be done (that is, signal processing requiring significant sampling rate and bandwidth), and yet, these devices obviously do not have built-in lab oscilloscopes (and such a thing wouldn’t be economical, anyway). So, when these prototype devices become commercialised/productionised, how is this signal processing aspect of the oscilloscope built in to the device? The Digilent Analog Discovery seems like a more modular device, but even it seems too expensive (and too large) to include in a lot of commercial devices that require serious signal processing. All of my study has been on the lab/prototype/research aspect, so I’m trying to understand how things work on the production/commercialisation side of things.
