I've been thinking about picking up this http://www.gabotronics.com/development-boards/xmega-xprotolab.htm one. -14V to 20V in, only goes up to 200Khz :(, but it has a built in protocol sniffer and some other nice features. Only $50.


While attractively priced, they both seem have a maximum 5 volts input specification. While that is useful for logic and low level stuff, I would find that limit would cramp my style. Guess I'll just stay with my vintage analog Tektronix 2213 scope.  ;)

Presumably 50v with a 10x probe - but if you already have a Tektronix, I guess you've no reason to look elsewhere!

I got a nice analog oscilloscope (dual channel 60MHz) on Ebay for only about $100, after giving up on finding a USB plugin that would work on a Mac OS X system.


The problem with analogue scopes is that they generally don't have any storage capabilities.
Great for repetitive waveforms, not great for catching one-offs.

I started with analog... and then realised I wanted more...so replaced it with a lecroy waveace.
