Saleae has updated their popular Logic analyzer series to now include analog capabilities. A logic analyzer is a device that lets you watch digital signals in your electronics project, perfect for debugging protocols and communications between two chips. An oscilloscope lets you look at analog signals, good for determining what’s up with your power supply, audio circuit, or sensor. With the new Logic you can now do both!
This is the Saleae Logic 8 in Black. It has 8 channels it can watch at a time. All of these channels can be used for either analog or digital!
Specifications for digital use:
Digital Sample Rate: 100 MS/s
Can view digital signals up to 25 MHz
1.8-5.5V logic levels (as well as RS-232 and RS-442/3)
Specification for analog use:
Sample Rate: 10 MS/s @ 10 Bits
-3dB Bandwidth: 1MHz (signals with frequency components above this will not appear right)

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
