Launching BitScope Micro for Raspberry Pi
27 October 2014
Farnell element14 has partnered with BitScope Designs to manufacture and distribute a full feature dual channel digital oscilloscope for Raspberry Pi.
BitScope Micro is also an eight channel logic analyser, spectrum analyser, waveform and clock generator all packaged in one low cost lightweight water resistant test probe.
BitScope Micro captures digital signals at up to 40MSps and has a 20MHz analog bandwidth. The software supports frame rates beyond 20Hz and includes a digital phosphor display. It is fully user programmable and downloads are freely available for Raspberry Pi, Linux, Windows and Macintosh.
It also includes 10 mixed signal test clips, a USB cable and input terminators. It uses an industry standard IDC-10 connector for signal I/O. It offers programmable switching levels on two of the logic channels and impedance sensing, multiple ranges and a “macro mode” resolution of 12bits on both analog channels. It has standard oscilloscope input impedance (1M/10pF) so BNC adapters can be used to connect regular oscilloscope probes.
Chris Godfrey, global product director at Farnell element14, said there has long been a requirement in the market for an entry level oscilloscope to support the maker community and Raspberry Pi specifically. This low cost model from BitScope has all the functionality required for a plug and play oscilloscope.
Eben Upton, CEO at Raspberry Pi, comments that BitScope Micro is one of the most impressive add-ons for Raspberry Pi currently seen. The BitScope team have successfully optimised their software for Raspberry Pi including the new Model B+.
Priced at £89.00, BitScope Micro is available from Farnell element14 in Europe and CPC in the UK, Newark element14 and MCM in North American and element14 in APAC.
