    I would like to build my personal work space ,
    and looking for some PC-based instrument ,
    like logic analyzer , cro , function gen..etc...,
    would anyone suggest some brand name and
    model for me?

    ANT8 or ANT16 for a logic analyzer and USB Instruments for a USB Scope

    If you don't mind being limited to the audio range,
    and you have a system that can run real-mode DOS
    with an ISA-bus Sound Blaster card, you may want to
    check out my Daqarta package. It has real-time scope
    and spectrum analyzer modes, plus a really fancy
    signal generator.

    It doesn't have a logic analyzer as such, but if you
    use the LPTX driver (see the Download page) you
    can use your printer port to look at 4 lines at once.
    They will be summed together in a binary-weighted
    fashion, instead of 4 separate traces. This may
    take a little getting used to, but it does help to
    show gaps and overlaps better. Big problem is
    the sample rate is limited to 100 kHz or so by ISA
    bus. (With a few resistors, you can use this driver
    as an 8-bit ADC or DAC for analysis or generation.)

    Also supports a number of older laboratory-grade
    data acquisition baords.

    A Windows version that can use any sound card
    is in the works. A signal generator-only version
    will be released in a few weeks. I'll mention it here
    when it happens.

    The ANT8 is useful for me , but The Scope resolution only have
    200ksample/sec ,
    any other choice that have higher
    resolution ?
