    Why the oscilloscope's vertical resolution usually is 8 bit?
    Why not use 12bit even 16bit?

    you probably can get 12 or 16 bit resolution units but they are also likely to be much more expensive

    so different resolutions depending on if the scope is for the general/hobby market or the professional market

    do you have a particular scope in question ?
