I own a DS1102E oscilloscope with 1x/10x switch on the probe, and I need to measure voltage output from the MEMEs driver similar to MAX14515 (I can not find the exact datasheet for MAX14574). The driver provides 0-140V biased at 70V at 5kHz wave.
Is it safe (for the chip and the oscilloscope) to measure the voltage between GND and outputs (p.5-2 says 400V max input, just want to make sure I got it right)?
Should I have 1x or 10x attenuation on my probe when measuring this voltage magnitude at the given switching frequency?
I would appreciate the explanation on under what conditions 1x/10x setting is best fitted (i.e. high frequency, low voltage, high voltage, input/output impedance/capacitance...).
