hey, that's not entirely related to the audio, but audio repair, it can!!
I found it at half price (which is still high asser!)
I need this product because I often tinker, and when he must know the electronic signals and messages on the digital devices in the home (of course, manufacturers do not diffuse sources proprio software ... ****) and to repair other appareils.par example, I need to make a kind of infrared emitter to control via IR remote control various devices automatically, I use a diode ir with resistors and nutrition and the standard I and the frame on the screen ... For audio, it lets me know the problems of signals on the preamp and amplifiers.
This tilt is the top of the range DPO/MSO2000: 4 analog channels, a way of trigger and 16 digital channels (digital bus), all with a frequency analysis of 200Mhz. (DPOs: just analog, MSOs: analog + digital channels on 16.)
I use it for a week (2010,01,25)
I tried a few scopes: some one with the CRT (fragile), but with digital storage, the other kind TDSxxx with 2-Way, monochrome screen and sometimes a USB port.
into positives, it is frankly very convenient to use, there are some very specific functions that require the manual sometimes, but in most cases, there on the screen (in French, of course) just to manage the all.).
The front USB allows you to receive a QWERTY keyboard or a USB clée, but is able to manage at the same time with a USB hub (it took me to try: little com 'on this point)!
in negative point: the hood and front pouch are optional (200 €!) and small option cards also can decode and display real-time digital frames some common binary, hex or ascii, there 3 modules:
-UART, RS232, 422, 485 (brief, all serial transmission of data type)
-CAN, LIN (communication buses in vehicles)
-I2C, ... (Some small communication protocol circuit μContrôlleur).
to 600 € the small map, it is expensive option! The tilt can be only two at the same time and I got the tilt with one that decodes the UART, RS232, etc. ...
Price level, it remains a relatively expensive tilt (he is out there less than 2 years anyway) but it remains to Current news! and he has good technical specifications.
yet I am very pleased (I spent a year peeling sheets to choose one) and I would do without hesitation that choice (except that I have not the interest and the price does really is not accesible!)
