  1. Hi all, after reading the other thread about the various mini scopes I
    purchased one of these from Sparkfun for $AUD99.95:

    It only turned up today so haven't had a good play around with but upgraded
    to the BenF firmware and looks good for the price. Quite a nice screen and
    build quality looks pretty decent for the price. I've got an Agilent DSO but
    thought this would be ideal to whip out for quick tests like checking a
    serial line at least has data coming out it, and generally tracing that low
    speed control signals are doing something. Obviously not a replacement for
    "proper" gear but I can see it'll save some frustration moving and setting
    up the bigger gear just to find a broken cable or that a clock multiplier is
    vastly wrong.

    Being open source when time permits I might also have a go at adding a
    serial analyser to view micro debug output and that GPS modules are working
    and have acquired etc. When / if I get around to that it that should time
    having to setup a PC and flip adapters for 3V / 5V / RS232 etc.

    First time I've been here for a while, I'm Peter that used to run CommLinx
    Solutions and it's good to see a few familiar names still around the place.
  2. **S-W-E-E-T. Please give us your impressions of this device. Looks like a
    handy addition to the tool box. Hell, at the price, I could bolt one to the
    dummy loads and another to the line level monitor.
