Voltage Divider Circuit and Signal Analysis on the Oscilloscope (getting hands-on with digital inputs)

Square Wave 5V Signal input giving 3.3V Square Wave Signal output at a frequency of 1kHz:

Circuit Analysis and Calculations:

Square Wave Signal Degradation at High Frequencies (MHz range): 

Voltage Divider Circuit Demonstration on the Breadboard with probes connected to Signal Generator, and Digital Storage Oscilloscope (DSO) Channel 1 = input, Channel 2 = output:

Circuit Simulation:

Now, breaking the Voltage level by Loading the circuit with a smaller Resistor (Compare Voltmeter Readings):


  1. I would like to say that this blog really convinced me to do it! Thanks, very good post for test tag Melbourne. It is an useful blog. To be continue.
