DSO Nano v2.0 Puts An Oscilloscope in Your Pocket

 |  |  |  January 16, 2011


Boy, I can remember when an oscilloscope was an unwieldy box with a vector screen, which required significant desktop space  – and cost at least a few hundred bucks. Now, thanks to modern technology, you can get an oscilloscope that’s so compact, you can throw it in your pocket or backpack.

Measuring in at only 3.74″ (W) x 2.44″ (H) x 0.51″ (D), and weighing  just 76 grams, the DSO Nano v2.0 is a portable oscilloscope, designed for use in simple electronic engineering work. The compact gadget runs on an ARM Cortex-M3 processor, and displays signals on a color 320×240 display. Here’s a grab of the screen interface:

The DSO Nano v2.0 comes with portable probes, as well as a signal generator. It runs on a  rechargeable battery pack, and can capture and play back waveforms on a microSD card. If you’ve got the patience to sit through a 24 minute video, here’s an instructional demo of the scope I found over on YouTube.

You can get your hands on the DSO Nano v2.0 over at seeed studio for just $89 (USD). If you need a 4-channel scope, keep an eye out for their new DSO Quad – currently running Beta software – which sells for $159.
