Update: Digital Oscilloscope

It has been a long time and there have been several significant progressions!…

We has scraped the idea of using a PIC and are now using an FPGA that can run a lot faster, SRAM as a data buffer, a Cypress FX2 high speed USB controller and a whole host of analogue circuitry with multiplexers. We are still using the same ADC however. That part of the plan hasn’t changed!

We are currently finalising schematics, then will send the PCB designs off to be manufactured.

The end is in sight! This has turned out to be a project that has given us a vast amount of new knowledge. Now it’s time to share it!…
