    Can anyone guide me in acquiring test equipment for use with digital
    devices? I am a novice in the field of electronics and currently own
    a PC(linux), a digital multimeter and a solder iron. I would like to
    acquire programming and test equipment primarily for building digital
    circuits. At the moment I want to program and test EEPROMs. My
    understanding is that I will most likely need:
    1. power supply
    2. programming board
    3. oscilloscope

    Is it at all possible to forget the oscilloscope and use some sort of
    computer program/minimal hardware to use as an oscilloscope? As
    always, I don't have much money or room for extra equipment. Lastly,
    any advice on programming boards is highly appreciated. I want to
    keep things simple so I don't need state of the art equipment. I want
    reliable, straightforward and (hopefully) linux based solution. Thank
    you for your time.
