High Resolution Meets Mixed Signals
The ADP3450 and ADP3250 are the first in the line of Analog Discovery Pro devices and take the analog and digital instruments from the internationally popular Analog Discovery and turn up key functionalities to meet the growing need for professional-level home electronics test benches. At the heart of each device is a four or two channel high-resolution oscilloscope, offering 14-bit resolution at up to 0.5 GS/s. Additionally, to meet the needs of an increasingly digital world, 16 dedicated digital channels make the Analog Discovery Pro a true mixed signal oscilloscope. With the included digital power supply, digital outputs, two channel arbitrary waveform generator, and two dedicated external triggers the Analog Discovery Pro comes with up to 13 instruments ready to analyze mixed signal systems through our free software, WaveForms.
Introducing Linux Mode
Whether at home or in the lab, engineers are routinely asked to design and validate increasingly complex systems and decrease design cycle time. Using flexible test equipment that can research, validate, and test is one of the ways engineers can expedite this process. In addition to the up to 13 built-in instruments enabled by WaveForms, the Analog Discovery Pro introduces Linux Mode. Linux Mode provides an on-device terminal-based operating system that, when combined with WaveForms SDK, is a flexible starting point for all kinds of custom tests and applications. Running embedded on the device itself or via WaveForms, engineers and measurement enthusiasts alike can take advantage of data streaming via ethernet, and the on-device storage to capture buffers of millions of samples.
Advanced Trigger Modes
Whether in Linux Mode using WaveForms SDK, or in Standard Mode connected via WaveForms, the Analog Discovery Pro features a variety of advanced triggering options. Instruments within WaveForms can be cross-triggered for example, activating an oscilloscope capture based on a received and decoded digital protocol. And external signals can trigger events using the two dedicated external trigger inputs on the back of the device. WaveForms provides these features configurable in the instruments themselves, or for more control or automation in one of the available scripting interfaces.
TL;DR: high-res, giga-sample speed, mega sample memory depth, mixed signal analysis, advanced triggers, and customizability - all included in a device smaller than a laptop.
