This rig is designed to familiarise students with signal generators and oscilloscopes in a controlled environment before using the actual devices in a hands-on lab.

Signals can be outputted from a signal generator (Arbitrary waveform generator) and are observed and measured on an oscilloscope.The rig features a Tektronix AFG3022B Arbitrary function generator and a TDS2024C digital storage oscilloscope. In industry, especially in telecommunications the personnel involved in the testing and repair of electronics make extensive use of oscilloscopes and signal generators typically by injecting a known signal into an electronic circuit then tracking it through the stages of the circuit and viewing the waveform at each stage.
