I have a signal generator and an oscilloscope.
When I connect a plain BNC cable between them, and I generate a square wave, I see the square wave on the oscilloscope with the correct voltage.
However, I want to connect the signal generator to a breadboard, and use an oscilloscope probe to measure the voltage. If I connect the signal generator directly towards the oscilloscope (using an oscilloscope probe with banana plugs -> jumper wire -> resistor -> oscilloscope probe) and connecting grounds together, I get a much lower voltage on the oscilloscope.
I guess the problem is that I use an oscilloscope probe to 'output' the signal generator's signal.
Should I cut a BNC connector apart and directly connect banana plugs or whatever onto it?
