The problem, as suggested by Mr. R. L. Snyder, was to design a sweep system for an oscilloscope which would sequentially present on the trace three signals. The first would be the trace of the input signal, the second would be a horizontal line representing a voltage level with superimposed timing markers, the third would be another horizontal line representing a lower voltage than the first. The relative amplitudes of the first trace with respect to the difference of the other two should be variable and calibrated to allow direct indication of the amplitude of the input signal.
