PicBerry is a Digital Oscilloscope and Function Generator created by students at Cornell University.
Function Generators are used to create different types of electrical waveforms. They’re incredibly handy when learning how to diagnose and test problems with electrical equipment.
The waveforms created by a function generator are observed using an oscilloscope.
Advitya Khanna, Jeff Witz and Danna Ma are researchers at Cornell University. They’ve used a Raspberry Pi to create a device that performs both tasks at once. This is ideal for learning how electrical waveforms work.
“We created an affordable Digital Oscilloscope and Function Generator that is able to plot and produce (at the same time) generated electric signals (voltage) changing over time along a calibrated scale,” says the group.
