Advanced Math/Integrated Portable Digital Oscilloscope and Multimeter


Dear Prof Scott

Will it be useful to integrate/combine Portable Digital Oscilloscope and Digital Multimeter into a single Product ?

i.e. Combining functions of Oscilloscope and Multimeter in a single device.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

I'm sure at some point this will be done.

It's like when  they 1st made PCs, the languages did such small amounts of stuff since there was so little memory.  A single floppy only use to hold 64K of memory.  Soon, the floppies were 128K, then 256K, and soon were 512K.  At this time, most of the PCs had no internal memory, and there was only 64K or RAM.

As the size of them has increased, so has the products that people sell.  My first PC was an 8086, and that was before the 286s, which were followed by the 386s, then the 486s, and then the pentiums.  I haven't even kept track of what they've advanced since then.

As I was saying, PCs have advanced so much (along with calculators and phones), I'm sure as the use for them continues to grow, the use of  Digital Oscilloscope and Digital Multimeter will grow as well.

Even as we write, they are probably being integrated somewhere.

Did you ever see the movie named, "Click-it"?  At least, I believe that was its name.
On it, they had everything wired into one box.  That one box controlled a lot of stuff in the house.  I know it controlled the lights, TV and PC.  It possibly also controlled the oven, the locks, the bath, etc. and whatever else they could think of.  Granted, it was only a future device in a movie, but it is a device that is not to far off from occurring.

I can answer any question in general math, arithetic, discret math, algebra, box problems, geometry, filling a tank with water, trigonometry, pre-calculus, linear algebra, complex mathematics, probability, statistics, and most of anything else that relates to math. I can also say that I broke 5 minutes for a mile, which is over 12 mph, but is that relevant?


Experience in the area; I have tutored people in the above areas of mathematics for over two years in I have tutored people here and there in mathematics since before I received a BS degree back in 1984. In just two more years, I received an MS degree as well, but more on that later. I tutored at OSU in the math center for all six years I was there. Most students offering assistance were juniors, seniors, or graduate students. I was allowed to tutor as a freshman. I tutored at Mathnasium for well over a year. I worked at The Boeing Company for over 5 years. I received an MS degreee in Mathematics from Oregon State Univeristy. The classes I took were over 100 hours of upper division credits in mathematical courses such as calculus, statistics, probabilty, linear algrebra, powers, linear regression, matrices, and more. I graduated with honors in both my BS and MS degrees. Past/Present Clients: College Students at Oregon State University, various math people since college, over 7,500 people on the PC from the US and rest the world.

My master's paper was published in the OSU journal. The subject of it was Numerical Analysis used in shock waves and rarefaction fans. It dealt with discontinuities that arose over time. They were solved using the Leap Frog method. That method was used and improvements of it were shown. The improvements were by Enquist-Osher, Godunov, and Lax-Wendroff.

Master of Science at OSU with high honors in mathematics. Bachelor of Science at OSU with high honors in mathematical sciences. This degree involved mathematics, statistics, and computer science. I also took sophmore level physics and chemistry while I was attending college. On the side I took raquetball, but that's still not relevant.

Awards and Honors
I earned high honors in both my BS degree and MS degree from Oregon State. I was in near the top in most of my classes. In several classes in mathematics, I was first. In a class of over 100 students, I was always one of the first ones to complete the test. I graduated with well over 50 credits in upper division mathematics.

Past/Present Clients
My clients have been students at OSU, people who live nearby, friends with math questions, and several people every day on the PC. I would guess that you are probably going to be one more.
