Advice on Logic Analyzer

    I am looking for a logic analyzer and wanted to get some advice.
    Overall would it be better to go with a device that interfaces with a
    PC or just a standalone device? There was an ad in Circuit Cellar from
    a company called Intronix that sells a 34 channel analyzer for $389!

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    I bought that Intronix device and I'm happy with it. I also bought the
    extra probe assembly and a bag of those micro clips, they are very
    handy.
    PC is the only way to go IMHO. After all, most "stand alone" units are
    running Windows these days....
     
  3. The difference being that the standalone device is still
    running in 15 years, whereas the PC-addon only runs as
    long it fits to a PC and its software.

    Have had one of these for about a year and a half now, and think it's
    great. I'd buy one again. Recommend that you download the host software
    and run it as a demo to get some idea of the device's capabilities.

    ~$30 last year. works great came with 4 pods and 200 micro-clips.

    I am still running an old Dolch LAM. Slow but enough for most of my
    stuff. Grab it by the handle, set it down where needed, flip the power
    switch and go. And it don't need no stinkin' PC ;-)

    Depends on the speed your target is running at. If it's going relatively
    slow this might suit your needs. We use loads of them all over the place
    because they're so cheap......

    That is why people sought / bought devices that connected via standard
    interfaces, serial, parallel, GPIB, USB and Firewire.
