'[PIC]: Suggestions for Oscilloscope?'

Hi Guys,

The list is pretty quiet today. Sending this more as a test to see if I am
still on it! :-)

I want to buy my first oscilloscope. As I am now dabbling in PICs, I was
thinking about a TEK-210 60MHz

Any comments - negative or positive would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Sean

Seemed quiet to me, too.

I splurged and bought a Tek TDS-210 60 MHz 2-channel digital scope. I love
it. It's small, and bench space is limited here.

The scope is such a useful instrument that I would encourage you to get the
best one that you can afford, and even stretch a bit to get the next one up
from that. I prefer digital to analog for just about anything, although
someone with a bigger brain than mine could probably tell you if there are
reasons to get an analog scope.

Just my 2 cents...

Price is usually king, but 60 is a bit light.
It's not horrid, but imagine a 10 MHz square wave, in order to see the
edges accurately, I'd recommend 100 MHz.

Good triggering is important, especially with a non-storage scope.

The Tek 7000 series might give more value for the money.
$250 or so will buy a good mainframe, and vertical and horizontal sections.
You can get all sorts of plugins, even spectrum analyzers, for <$1k
Don't run them without the plugins though!

I have a 7000 that's usually an RF spectrum analyzer, and a TDS-420 DSO
which I use for waveforms and logic debugging.

Also, the tek 308s are pretty cheap, as a dedicated LA.
Small screen, but easy to set up.
As with any LA, don't even bother if it dosen't have the probes.

Great scope for the money.  One nice thing about it is that once you learn
the user interface, you can operate most any modern Tek digital scope.  I
used a 220 for a month (my first exposure to the newer Tek digital scopes)
before getting my THS-730 and was able to jump right in and really USE that
'730.

One word of advice: if you can afford it, go for the 220.  That extra
bandwidth really comes in handy!

Sean,
Why not go with one that is PIC based?  I'm using the Velleman
K7103 for my PIC stuff and it's great.  Here are a couple of
URLs to check out:

AH! I wasn't aware that it was a DSO. That makes things better.

Absolutely.

Both have their advantages. I like being able to email waveforms around,
and that's  a DSO sort of thing.  Analog is better at details, and dosen't
suffer from aliasing. It also dosen't hide noise as digital does.

I have a Tektronix TDS-210 and find that it's a great tool. I don't
think that you'll be disappointed.
