I'm thinking it's from an O2 sensor.

...I didn't think the O2-sensor had a "dwell" state between it's "rich-vs-lean" voltage swings...just 'slam-bam' output.

Lots of interesting (and funny!) guesses but still nothing correct. Keep on guessing!

Hint: Many modern electronic devices have signals similar to it. Even some cars, such as the Prius, have such signals.

Something to do with a computer chip?

I can't think of a sensor on a car that operates in a range where 292mV is the high signal, and -300mV is the low... unless I'm mistakenly reading the scale in quadrants, in which case the low would be ~50mV

Also, that entire waveform occurred over 154ms, or is that time between peaks?

Cheaters can't even find the answer! I even went over to CMPG and didn't find it.
