NEW PRODUCT – 1 GS/s Digital Storage Oscilloscope + Extras

Window-82

NEW PRODUCT – 1 GS/s Digital Storage Oscilloscope + Extras. The ultimate debugging tool for electronics, this oscilloscope will turn you into a “Circuit Whisperer”. You will be able to peer into the workings of your circuits to better understand them. Difficult problems will suddenly become trivial. We tried many beginner oscilloscopes and found this one to be a perfect balance of price and function: it’s perfect as a ‘first scope’ or as a hacker-space resource to share. To learn about how to use oscilloscopes, we suggest reading Tektronix’s great “XYZs of Oscilloscopes” and the other great Tek documents that cover everything you need to know!

One of the cool things about this scope is that people have ‘hacked’ it to do awesome stuff like play Pong! There are many other “hacks” too, we picked this scope because if it’s hack-a-bility!

  1. Good choice LadyAda I have the same exact scope and updated it to 100MHZ and pong:) Great scope! Ez to follow tutorial on Dave’s site http://www.eevblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=553.msg81913#msg81913

  2. I was just going to ask you guys if you were going to start carrying an Oscope. I’ve long been considering going with a digital scope because the newer cheap ones offer sampling built-in. For the moment, I’m sticking with my father’s old Tek 465, but as I get a little more advanced, I’m coming to you guys for my scope needs.

  3. I purchased one of these myself a while back, and have absolutely no hesitation recommending them to anyone who really starts to have a serious interest in electronics and embedded devices. You might not need a scope every day, but when you do need one you’ll be glad you have it in your tools cupboard.

    It’s not a trivial investment if you’re a hobbiest, but this particular model is at least a smart one.

  4. My friend approved and gave it a thumbs up:
