Need to do some debugging? Who doesn’t? But do you really want to be weighed down with a logic analyzer, a pattern generator and a DSO? Well with this tool from Link instruments, you won’t be. The MSO-19 is a single-channel 2GSa/s oscilloscope as well as a 200MSa/s logic analyzer and pattern generator. This combination does more than save space, though, because with all nine channels being sampled during the same clock you get accurate time correlation between logic and o-scope events. All channels on the instrument can be viewed simultaneously using the included software. Simply plug in the device, install the drivers and you’re ready to do some serious troubleshooting. Also, at just 2.5oz, it’s small and light enough to pack in your laptop case or tool bag.
The MSO-19 offers several different triggering options including adjustable rising and falling edge triggers, pulse width, logic triggers, even I2C and SPI trigger words. Also, because of the large buffer size and quick processor in the MSO-19, the speed of your computer won’t significantly effect the performance of your instrument. Did we mention that the MSO-19 is also an 8-channel pattern generator? Pattern generator output can be triggered by any of the advanced triggering methods and the software allows to simple data creation and import/export.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Experienced - You will need to consult a datasheet for calculations to determine a components output format, linearity, and do a little math to get what you need. You will be using a datasheet or schematic beyond basic pinouts.
