Does anybody arround know about any simple, easy to build osciloscope circuit that can be interfaced to a pc (serial or parallel ports)? A homemade sampling head (not real time) would already be usefull....
My old osciloscope just stoped working and I would like to build something reasonable that could replyce it :D
Thanks to all.

Hi, I'm currently looking for a good and easy to build scope. It can be a pc scope or any scope or maybe with microcontroller but not with hard to find parts. Bit scope is very good but too complex to build for me and it also hard to find or buy from my country

Did anybody try to build it by himself?

I have one of the older Bitscope, I am not satisfied with the frame rate when updating. The new ones is much faster and have ethernet / USB.
I depends upon the budget, last time I checked the PICO were more expencive.
It also depends if you like to buy a finished product or build something yourself.

If you don't have any scope yet, buy a used analog scope first.

I suggest that you build a simple active probe with an attenuation of 100:1.
It might not prevent you from killing yourself, but it will protect your scope. :wink:

Since the frequency of measure is not high, you can build the probes using any coaxial cable. The effect on the measurement should be almost zero.
A cable used in headphones should work fine. The whole constraction can be a homemade probe with a lot of tollerance in is assembly.

A 12 bit 40MHZ scope would require a 4 layer board and someone who is an expert at board layout and a somewhat experienced designer. You will also need an FPGA chip to handle the data coming out of that ADC, because no microcontroller can handle that kind of a raw data stream, plus format it and send it up to a PC or out onto an LCD screen, plus ha

What is the bandwidth of your XYZ signals?
Converting from vector format to raster scan format is a rather complex operation. Some digital oscilloscopes have XYZ inputs and a VGA monitor output. Use one of them, and you won't need to build anything.

What do you mean by 200 MHZ/sec?
ADC 8 bit is enough, but you have to build a good hardware circuit for the actual measurement.
Now as for the results, you can do with a (relatively) low power MCU, for example ARM Cortex M3,
but you have to have an independent circuit for sampling and dumping the samples in memory in
realtime. For this, as

The simplest way is to use audio transformers on each end. They are specified by the power level and impedance of the source and load the work into. Put 100 ohms in shunt with the destination end and use 100 ohm to 100 ohm transformers.
You can try the unshielded cable first to see how much extra noise it picks up. One way is to put a 10 ohm
