    Is the pulse repetition rate that same thing as the frequency and time period of a waveform?
    Or how do you convert the frequency or time period of a waveform into the pulse repetition rate?

    Why would a technician want to know the pulse repetition rate of a waveform?

    I measured my Pulsar logic probe
    it has 400pps selector switch and a 0.5PPS

    measured with an oscilloscope and frequency counter

    400pps = 454HZ

    0.5PPS= 406 hz

    The 0.5PPS waveform on the oscilloscope was very very small, look like a pulse glitch , it was very hard for the frequency counter to capture the 0.5PPS pulse

    The O.5PPS pulse = 3.47milliseconds

    I used an analog storage scope to try to capture the O.5pps pulse but still it has hard. I used the normal mode triggering also

    400PPS pulse per second is converted how to frequency and time period?

    what is the formula to convert frequency and a time period to the pulse per second PPS?

    What circuits would you want to measure the PPS? a clock circuit?
