The Great Search – A good beginner oscilloscope #TheGreatSearch #adafruit #digikey @Adafruit @DigiKey
(Video) We have folks ask us what’s a good beginner ‘scope to purchase. Turns out that even with a $500 budget, you can get a pretty nicely spec’d out scope that will help you tons in debugging projects.
Since oscilloscopes come in just about every configuration, a lot of picking out a scope is going to be deciding what trade-offs you want with respect to channels, bandwidth/sample rate, and memory size. Let’s check out what you can get on Digi-Key to kickstart your electronics workbench!
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.
