    The logos are all waveforms from an oscilloscope. Most likely obtained by putting two sinosoids of different frequencies on the x and y probes.

    They worked for me. I used to love playing around on an o-scope, making Lissajous loops. So many tricks you can do by cross-connecting the probes.

    Curve tracers are still one of the fastest ways I know to find a bad component. Fun to build and use.

    ABC.

    All use variants of the Lissajous curve / Bowditch curve as their logos.

    Lissajous curves in their logos

    The common thing to the logos is that they all have “Lissajous curve”.

    It is the graph of a system of parametric equations


  14. ElatedSipun010

    All the three logos consists of “Lissajous curve”.

    Lissajous curve. Nice qn.

    All these logos have Lissajous curve in them.

    (1) The University of Electro-Communications, Japan
    (2) The Lincoln Laboratory at MIT
    (3) The Australian Broadcasting Corporation

    (1),(2) and (3) uses Lissajous figures for representing their logos

    1) uses (a = 1, b = 3, δ = π/2)

    2) uses (a = 4, b = 3, δ = 0)

    3) uses (a = 3, b = 4, δ = π/2)

    The logos are made of Lissajous curves with different parameter ratios.
