    All,

    I'm looking for recommendations for the following equipment:

    Oscilloscope: Dual channel would be nice, up to 10mhz
    Power Supply: again dual channel with + and - 15
    Function Generator: up to 10mhz

    I'm trying to keep the price down to about $600.00 TOTAL.

    Thanks all,

    Matt S.

    O'scopes are tough. Either buy new (= $$$) or used with a real warranty
    or used where you're able to try it out (at a Hamfest or similar). There
    are lots of vendors to chose from and many scopes. Try
    www.digikey.com
    www.jameco.com
    www.web-tronics.com
    and many others. Be skeptical.
    There's a nice triple output (5V/3A and 2x 0-30V/2A) at
    http://www.web-tronics.com/dualout03x22.html for about $170.

    If you can get away with up to a few 100 KHz or so, you can build your
    own sine/square/triangle generator with a microcontroller and a few
    outboard components. Very stable freqs and a good student project!
