AVR XMEGA oscilloscope and signal generator

Posted on Sunday, May 29th, 2011 in dev boards, oscilloscope by Ian

bearmos found a multifunction MSO:

…it appear to be an MSO, with an OLED display, in a DIP package, for $35

The Xprotolab is the first mixed signal oscilloscope with an arbitrary waveform generator in a DIP module. It measures only 1 x 1.6 inches, and can be mounted directly on a breadboard. The Xprotolab can also be used as a development board for the AVR XMEGA microcontroller.

    I have one of these, and I must say, it’s amazing what they have packed into such a small package! I don’t own a ‘real’ o-scope, but I think this will serve my hobbyist needs for quite some time!
    (BTW: They’re now $40 US assembled, but still WELL worth the money!)

    43oh.com has one of these as top prize for this month’s msp430 project contest. http://www.43oh.com/2011/05/may-2011-project-of-the-month-contest-win-a-xprotolab/

    Has any one tested this board out as an antennas analyzer? I’m only interested because its the smallest I’ve ever seen and would be a great tool to have wile I construct antennas.
