As a member of the TechShop in Austin, TX I teach a class on Electronics Measurements. The class includes a variety of test equipment like power supplies, DMMs, and Rigol oscilloscopes. One of the oscilloscopes is a Rigol DS1052D which is a “Mixed Signal Oscilloscope.” In addition to the two 100MHz analog channels, the scope also include 16 digital channel channels. It is a logic analyzer and oscilloscope in one!
When I teach the Electronics Measurements class at the TechShop in Austin, I take a lot of pride in showing off the Mixed-Signal Oscilloscope. We have a Rigol DS1102D as well as a standard DSO. To help illustrate the power of the combined digital and analog channels, I created a Mixed Signal Oscilloscope Demo Board, based on a counter, that has an issue that could be turned on or off. This board is also my first time making use of OSH Park’s PCB service.
