DSO nano - the pocket size digital storage oscilloscope
« on: January 06, 2010, 10:07:04 AM »
Found this today . . . only $89! On first glance it looks really good. Anyone tried it out?

I have been thinking about buying this one, or the kit from sparkfun. There are videos of the sparkfun one running, but none of this one, so i am doubtful on how well this one works.

It looks good for what it can do. Look at the specs:
Analog bandwidth   0 - 1MHz
Max sample rate   1Msps 12Bits
Sample memory depth   4096 Point
Horizontal sensitivity   1uS/Div~10S/Div (1-2-5 Step)
Horizontal position    adjustable with indicator
Vertical sensitivity    10mV/Div~10V/Div (with ×1 probe)
   0.5V/Div~10V/Div (with ×10 probe)

It ok for slow digital (<200kHz) or for audio bandwidths and largish amplitude signals.

it's better then my portable scope. considering my scope is about 30 years old i'd say that's likely.

Hi,

It looks good for what it can do. Look at the specs:
Analog bandwidth   0 - 1MHz
Max sample rate   1Msps 12Bits
I have to seriously doubt a 1MHz bandwidth with a max. sample rate of 1Msamples/s!


It ok for slow digital (<200kHz)
Actually not, unless it's just for well behaved signals. A 200kHz digital signal still needs a fast 'scope to check the transitions.

And it's really not very sensitive, but for a tertiary toy or your first 'scope on a tight budget, I guess it has got its niches.

It appears the DSO was already posted:

Just google "NMCI sucks"
