Adafruit has announced the availability of the Digilent analog discovery 2 USB oscilloscope and logic analyzer. Developed in conjunction with Analog Devices and supported by Xilinx University Program. Priced at $275 the USB digital oscilloscope is driven by the free WaveForms software (Mac, Linux, and Windows compatible) software.
“Digilent Analog Discovery 2 is a USB oscilloscope, logic analyzer, and multi-function instrument that allows users to measure, visualize, generate, record, and control mixed-signal circuits of all kinds – using any desktop computer or Raspberry Pi 4!”
“This test and measurement device is small enough to fit in your pocket but powerful enough to replace a stack of lab equipment, providing engineering professionals, students, hobbyists. and electronic enthusiasts the freedom to work with analog and digital circuits in virtually any environment, in or out of the lab. The analog and digital inputs and outputs can be connected to a circuit using simple wire probes; alternatively, the Analog Discovery BNC Adapter and BNC probes can be used to connect and utilize the inputs and outputs.”
- Two-channel USB digital oscilloscope (1MΩ, ±25V, differential, 14-bit, 100MS/s, 30MHz+*)
