The ScopeFun prototype is currently being evaluated by an independent EMC testing lab, which will verify that ScopeFun meets international EMC standards. Meanwhile, we have run into some issues sourcing one of our main components. Unfortunately, while our supplier was able to source this part, long lead times will delay board assembly by a few weeks. Delivery dates have been pushed back accordingly. Read the full update.
Three days left! In this update we will provide information about where to find ScopeFun documentation and how to make use of it. Read the full update.
ScopeFun provides 12 digital General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) pins. These digital channels – which can serve either as inputs or as outputs – are useful for a wide range of applications. ScopeFun includes two instruments that make use of the GPIO: the logic analyzer and the digital pattern generator. For this update, we have created a short tutorial that demonstrates both applications. Read the full update.
In consultation with Crowd Supply, we managed to reduce the minimum number of boards we can deliver while still covering the cost of production. Read the full update.
In this update we will look into the client-server architecture that makes it possible to control the ScopeFun hardware remotely and to access measurement data from a separate, Intenet connected device. Read the full update.
ScopeFun provides a Python API that you can use to create your own applications. It allows you to build upon and extend existing ScopeFun features without modifying the source code. To demonstrate it's use, we have created a Python script that turns ScopeFun into a Bode analyzer. Read the full update.
Because ScopeFun is completely open source, users can modify it or add new features simply by editing the source code. To show how easy it is to customize ScopeFun, we have created a short tutorial in which we implement a filter inside the FPGA to average digital samples coming from the onboard AD converter. As we discussed in our previous update, this filter has the effect of reducing noise in the captured signal. Read the full update.
Noise affects accuracy, especially when measuring low amplitude signals. Let's take a look at how ScopeFun performs in this regard. Read the full update.
ScopeFun in an open source, all-in-one instrumentation platform that includes an oscilloscope, an arbitrary waveform generator, a spectrum analyzer, a logic analyzer and a digital pattern generator. Our crowdfunding campaign is live! Read the full update.
