Description: This kit includes everything you need to build your very own, fully functional, digital oscilloscope. Once you’ve got it up and running, the oscilloscope features up to 5M samples/second, 8-bit resolution, up to 50Vpp max input voltage, and more!
This kit includes a semi-populated PCB, with all of the surface mount components already soldered on for you. The components left for you to solder are all through-hole. This is on the higher end of difficulty as far as through-hole kits go.
This kit pairs nicely with our BNC Probe Kit! A 9V power supply is required to run the oscilloscope; supply is not included.

The kit arrived well packed. It took roughly an hour to solder in parts. The documentation is good and easy to find. I have owned many Textronic scopes over the last 55 years but donated my last one to the ham club here. Then I needed a scope. For my use it is great, takes up very little room and is easy to use. Whether it is a first time scope or if you have used one for years, this is a good portable, fun tool. Bruce KT4ET

Was a fun kit to assemble and performs as advertised and expected. Would’ve been nice to have a power supply included but no problem. Overall I’m satisfied.
I think the product is fine. Works well, easy to use. However I paid $79.95 for it from Sparkfun and on the documentation sheet it came with was an address for support at jyetech.com. When I went to that website I found the same oscilloscope on sale for $49.00. Needless to say I will not be buying from Sparkfun again without doing much more research. I feel ripped off! Update: After seeing the above review, I received an email from Sparkfun giving me a $20 credit matching the price I originally paid with the current price. I consider that very good customer service and am changing to 4 stars. Would be 5 except there is no case which would be nice. And it’s still $10 cheaper at Jyetech.
Hey there! I’m sorry about the inconvenience - please keep an eye out for an email from me addressing this. :)
The instructions are excellent and the testing along the build process is great too. Some of the soldering is trickier, requiring some patience and a good soldering iron, but most of it is not too bad. Expect to be carefully adjusting the contrast of the screen at the end: it is only visible in a small range of the adjustment screw, so be patient there as well. In the end you’ll have a useful little tool. Much thanks to the Customer Service people at SparkFun as well, because I have yet to have an interaction with them that doesn’t make me a happier person.
I did some videos about this kit, showing how to use it and detailing the build. I hope you find it helpful. This kit requires intermediate soldering skills.
