NEW PRODUCT – DSO Nano v2 – Pocket-size color digital oscilloscope

Dsonanov2 Lrg

NEW PRODUCT – DSO Nano v2 – Pocket-size color digital oscilloscope. This cute pocket oscilloscope is a perfect companion to your tool box. For beginners, its a good starter scope – it is not as complicated as a benchtop scope so its easy to use. For advanced EE’s, its useful as a scope-on-the-go, for field-debugging, when you don’t want to drag your scope over, or when a floating-ground is needed (it will naturally do ‘differential’ measurements as long as its not plugged into a computer USB port). It’s not a terribly fast scope, best used for signals up to 100KHz, and it is only a single channel, but we still find uses for it all the time, especially with analog projects!

  • Portable and lightweight, only 76 grams and 95mm x 62mm x 13mm
  • 320×240 Color TFT display
  • Built in Lithium polymer battery, USB rechargeable
  • Waveform storage and playback to microSD card slot (microSD card is not included)
  • 6 triggering modes
  • 1 channel input, 200Khz Analog Bandwidth, 1 Mega-sample-per-second. Best for use on signals from DC to 100 KHz
  • Complete measurement markers and signal characteristic
  • Built-in Signal Generator
  • Comes complete with: 2 types of probes, one with hooks, one for plugging into a PCB, screwdriver, carrying bag, stand
  • Updatable firmware! – check the Downloads tab above
  • DSO Nano manual

  1. Recently, The Custom Geek posted a nice video on the operation of the DSO Nano and installation of the Benf firmware. The Link is http://thecustomgeek.com/2011/09/28/the-dso-nano-v2-pocket-oscilloscope-explained/

  2. This looks so nice! Can you speak to how long the battery typically lasts?

  3. for battery life – display being left on the whole time?

  4. @adafruit, I would be interested in “typical” usage but also worst case usage (i.e. display being left on the whole time).

  5. To address the battery life question, I usually get at least about 3 hours of use on a single charge. This is also running the BenF firmware. (see link above)
    Hope this helps. 🙂

  6. so far we’ve used it for a full day, on and off and it’s not dead yet. we think it being on for about 3-4 hours non-stop is likely a good estimate.

    but we’ll have a follow up update of course too.
