Saelig Company, Inc. (www.saelig.com) has unveiled the first mixed-signal oscilloscope in the world that moves Apple’s ubiquitous touch-screen interface and iOS devices into the test and measurement world — the iMSO-104.
This revolutionary oscilloscope is an adapter for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad that is easy to use, making it suitable for field service, application and sales engineers as well as hobbyists and students.
With a maximum sampling rate of 12 MSa/s and five MHz bandwidth, iMSO-104 can simultaneously analyze four digital and one analog signals for time-synchronized and versatile troubleshooting. It offers all the usual trigger, input and math features found in high quality oscilloscope, including variable persistence, cursor measurements and integrated 3.3V 1 kHz reference signal.
The oscilloscope also has novel features such as instant emailing of screen captures and computation power. Moreover, simple measurements of period, frequency, reference signal capture and duty cycle are just a touch away. With input voltage display ranging from 50 mV to 2 V/div, the oscilloscope’s timebase range between 2uS and 1S/div.
It is based on Cypress Semiconductor’s PSoC 3, which is a low power, system-on-a-chip mixed-signal IC that handles the proprietary dock interface of Apple for iOS devices while processing incoming digital and analog signals simultaneously. This results to a handy intuitive oscilloscope system that is extremely portable and affordable. It uses intuitive finger movements to adjust trigger level, repositioning channel displays or zooming. Captured signal screenshots can be sent rapidly as a time-saving email image for quick reporting, Sent through other available Apps. In addition, time and current location can be incorporated in the email with a link to Google Maps for distinct logging on-the-job signal information.
