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.
If you don't understand an example, don't 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...

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

I like the LIFETIME WARRANTY

I presume that means "for the life of the tool"  :)

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

Electronic Cigarette Vape Mod Aspire NX100 E Cig Box Max 100W
510 Thread Compatible with 18650 and 26650 Battery


€ 17.88 free shipping to Germany (I always wonder how that is possible)



I like the 26650 battery, the color display, upgradability, integrated charger and the many operation modes,
so I just ordered a second unit as a present for a friend.

Too bad the device is not Open Source.

Good point.
If not, that means they might be good for ~15 more years :(
