I have the same logic analyser and love it.  Don't really need a scope, anymore, for most things.  And a scope won't have all of those nice decoders that are so handy (mainly, for me, uart, I2C, SPI).

I bought the more expensive Sparkfun version in December in the hope that they at least contribute part of the money to Saleae.

I'm sure both are clones.

If you understand an example, use it.

Cost me 28 bucks to drop 3.7v down to 3.0v.... I feel robbed. (LDO, caps, SOT-23 breakout board)

But at least it works!

I tried a 3.3v zenner diode but the voltage was still too high at 3.3v... (guess the temperature sensor on the weather station is calibrated to 3v, the 3.3v resulted in a temperature reading 4-7 degrees F too high.


Coulda just gotten a 3v zenner diode i reckon...

Would this have helped, AliExpress.

Hi;
Nice, what bits did it come with, any 2mm, 3mm sockets?
