DSO Nano v3 – Pocket-size color digital oscilloscope #FathersDay
While purchasing a starter bench scope such as our primo Rigol 1 GS/s Digital Storage Oscilloscope might not be in every Father’s Day budget, this super handy pocket-sized DSO Nano will be a treat for all electronics-enthusiast dads out there. You never know when he might be able suss out signal-gremlins in an analog circuit by taking a reading on his handy pocket scope. And plus, with a tool like this always at hand, he will always be able to share insights into mysteries of electronics with anyone he encounters, including members of his family!
DSO Nano v3 – 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! The new version 3.0 has a nice fully-metal case for increased durability…. (read more)
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
