Sirs, I am currently enrolled in an electronics class, and the subject came up about Bode Plot and I have not been able to find much about it. Is it a test machine, if so how do you connect it? Where can I see one, as this was a test question. I will appreciate whatever you can help.
A Bode plot is just a name for a type of plot, specifically, a plot showing gain (usually in dB, of a filter for example) as a function of frequency. The X-axis of the plot---frequency---is a logarithmic scale (e.g. the plot may have equally-spaced X-axis intervals with "tick" values of: 1Hz, 10Hz, 100Hz, 1kHz, 10kHz,...). That is about all I can remember. I'm sure if you do a web search you can find out more information about Bode plots. BTW, Bode is a name: the name of the guy who popularized this method of visualizing filter response.
