Taiwan is a part of China, didn't your geography teacher teach you that?

My teacher taught me that China was part of the Japanese Empire, never trust geography teachers.  ]:D


Your geography teacher is 100 percent a fool. So sorry for you to have such a teacher....

Made in Taiwan, not in China.

Seeing Taiwan as being part of China depends more on your political view than your geographic one. ....


It's not about political view. It has no doubt Taiwan is a part of China, just like Alaska is part of US. No doubt.

They might talk, read & write Chinese but the currency is different, much like Scotland soon will might be.  :P
Don't PM me for help as I will ignore it.

Not a oscilloscope but do you already own a logic analyser? - https://www.saleae.com/logic/ -
helps to debug digital protocols like serial and I2C

Depending on your projects an LA might be a better choice!


I like that..... probably cost a fortune landed here though, with shipping and duty. I'm going to ask my friendly supplier if they can source these.

Anyone got experience with Zeroplus LAP-C (16032)?

Any advice on purchasing a 'scope for Arduino type projects?


Have you seen BitScope? They have several models that connect through USB to the PC to do most of the processing and visualization. The hardware is a lot simpler and cost is reduced.

So back on topic from the politico-geography.....

Another local supplier has this Velleman APS230 for 4000ZAR. (~370USD, 290EUR, 230GBP.)

I like the look of that: nice and small.....

I would really appreciate comment on that model: bearing in mind I'm a humble hobbyist who has no need for bells and / or whistles. When I read about switch bounce and stuff, and see that my count goes up 2 or more per click, it would be really nice to stick a scope on that and see what it actually does. Be nice to see PWM. Be nice to see SQW from a DS1307, or the output from a 555. That's really it, nothing fancy.

If anyone knows this product, or wouldn't mind watching this YouTube review I'd be grateful.

TIA,

Jim

edit..... This page says it's obsolete, which doesn't really fuss me. The RS232 i'face is pretty old school though: is there a way of hooking RS232 to a laptop with some kind of RS232/USB converter box or cable thingy? (more edit.... found some converter cables....)

and yet more edit..... User Manual


And again.... the above all becomes irrelevant I think, looking at ADS-2102B on special for the same price. Not obsolete, I see a USB on the front.....
