Description: When you think about a piece of equipment like a mixed signal oscilloscope you usually think of, well, a piece of equipment. What you probably don't imagine is a DIP package. The XMEGA Xprotolab is exactly that: The first ever mixed signal oscilloscope, logic analyzer and arbitrary waveform generator in a DIP module. At only 1 x 1.6 inches, this oscilloscope can be plugged directly into a breadboard.
The on-board graphic OLED matrix can display waveforms, measurements and menu systems. You can also connect it to your PC and use Gabotronics' XScopes software to control the device and view waveforms.
The scope itself obviously allows simultaneous sampling of analog and digital signals but also has several advanced trigger modes, XY mode for plotting Lissajous patterns, phase differences or V/I curves, Spectrum Analyzer with different windowing options and even an arbitrary waveform generator with sweep on all parameters.
The awesome functionality-to-size ratio is due, in part, to the ATXMEGA32A4U microcontroller on board. We can hear you thinking, "This board has an ATXMEGA32A4U, an OLED display and USB interface? Scope or no scope, this would be a great development board!" Well Gabotronics had the same thought and installed a USB bootloader so there's no need for specialized programming tools!
