The Analog Discovery review

Jack did a review of the Analog Discovery bench tool. This is a 5 MHz 2 channel scope,  5 MHz 2 channel waveform generator, and a 100MSPS 16 channel logic analyzer. This was also the top prize in this year’s 7400 contest.

The bottom line is that for $199, and especially at $99 for students, this is a great product. You’re not going to do ARM development with it, but it’s decent for a lot of analog work and for dealing with slow microcontrollers. The pattern and waveform generators are a real boon for running experiments.

    it says
    Software

    Waveforms™ software: full-featured GUI for all instruments
    Windows® XP® or newer

    So I’m guessing that’s a “No”

    I am leching at his scope. That is an Agilent Infinium with Jitter Analysis software. Me wants one.

    Looking at this product, now making me jealous. I hope I have opted it in 7400 contest because I did not received the MPLAB ICD 3 and Explorer 16 Board until yet. But I am still hopeful that I will get this product(MPLAB ICD 3 and Explorer 16 Board) soon or any shipment notification!.
