A Multimeter is an electronic device that is used to make various electrical measurements, such as AC
and DC voltage, AC and DC current, and resistance. It is called a Multimeter because it combines the
functions of a voltmeter, ammeter, and ohmmeter. Multimeter may also have other functions, such as
diode test, continuity test, transistor test, TTL logic test and frequency test.
CRO is an electronic device which is capable of giving a visual indication of a signal waveform. With an
oscilloscope the waveform of the signal can be determine. Oscilloscope can also be used for measuring
voltage, frequency and phase shift.
An oscilloscope is a test instrument which allows us to look at the 'shape' of electrical signals by
displaying a graph of voltage against time on its screen. It is like a voltmeter with the valuable extra
function of showing how the voltage varies with time.
