Scoping for the Curious Inventor: Twiddle and Scratch
Saturday, May 21, 2011 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM (EDT)
Saturday May 21 at 4:00 PM
Cost: 20 minutes team cleanup of the hackerspace at 3:40PM or at 6:00PM, you choose!
A vintage 20lb oscilloscope will be provided for you. Feel free to bring your own if your back is up to it. Bring extra probes if you have them, particularly unusual interesting ones!
We'll cover the basics of understanding what the various features and modes of a scope, how to find your trace once you've lost it, what the deal is with all the probes, see how to explore active circuits and signals.
We'll also look at some whiz-bang features of newer scopes such as LVL1's Fluke handheld scopemeter, possibly the DSO Quad, and the USBee AX USB Oscilloscope and Logic Analyzer.
