The Oscilloscope Module (or ScopeBit) is a small output module that displays the waveform of the signal going through it. It is based on the popular Xprotolab oscilloscope: http://www.gabotronics.com/development-boards/xmega-xprotolab.htm
The Oscilloscope Module is a one-channel oscilloscope with an input range of 0 to 5V and a maximum sampling rate of 2 Mega Samples / second.

The module has a switch to select the menu mode:
- Basic Menu: The module will set all parameters automatically, the user can only change between three operating modes: Scope, FFT, and Voltmeter.
- Advanced Menu: The user can change all parameters of the module. There are additional settings, like gain, time base, triggering, cursors, etc. that can be accessed.

Now, you’ll be able to see your synth sounds!

    It would be awesome to have something like this that was an interface that could be plugged straight in to the POD connector on the Bitscope Micro.

  • ninjafox724 over 2 years ago

    Nice job! I think it would be cool to have something that you could have an advanced mode.

    This would be a great add-on, hope it gets approved.

  • rodneywl@scea.wa.edu.au over 2 years ago

    perhaps the freq. range could be extended so it could be used as an inline test device...

    Great basic tool for electronics of all types. I've used professional models for years. You can not understand electronic work fully without one. This is an advanced learning tool for all interested in what occurs in an electronic event - from voltages, sounds, transient events, light, and much more.

    Great idea.

  • vggundar over 2 years ago

    I have one of Gabotronics 2 channel oscilloscopes for breadboarding. It is a great tool! The computer software adds the ability to view traces on your PC through the USB. Just a great idea for a bit.

  • JakeyFlower over 2 years ago

    This is simply a must have!

  • phillip.sherwood@gmail.com over 2 years ago

    I hope to get one someday soon to help me learn the basics of how an Oscilloscope functions for a hobbyist vs. an Engineer. Great idea and good luck! You have my vote...

  • GibbyStuff over 2 years ago

    An Oscilloscope addition to the LittleBits library would provide a great Bits tool to visualize just what is happening in a LittleBits project. How about a Synth output? A connection via the Oscilloscope USB port to a computer can provide endless opportunities. A great way to add educational value to the LittleBits library of Bits.

  • Andrew_littleBits over 2 years ago

    Hey @GibbyStuff - you actually can do just that with this module. Gabotronics has their own software that they've built that will allow you to visualize the oscilloscope's output on a computer via micro USB.

    Thanks for all the comments and suggestions!

      Hi Gabriel,
      Does your oscilloscope compute/display the frequency of the signal?

    • brendanmulv about 2 years ago

      Exactly that, a read of the frequency of signal would be really helpful for real time note tuning.

  • Andrew_littleBits over 2 years ago

    It was great to have Gabriel from Gabotronics on last week's bitLab Live. Check out the video, share his submission, and help him reach the votes needed to make it to the next phase!

    This is a great way to learn about sound waves

  • oscguy over 2 years ago

    I bought the xProtoLab board and connected it up with the littlebits hardware development kit - it is amazing! I can't wait for the production version of this bit. It is so much easier to show and teach when people can see immediately the effect of each bit and what happens when you move the scope to different positions in the circuit path.

  • Scott F. Thompson over 2 years ago

    having a tuner option in this would be optimal.

  • JavaLaurence about 2 years ago

    A picture is worth a thousand words. Visualizing an output would be extremely cool. Hope the final price of this will be very aggressive (max 70 USD?)

  • rcon303 over 1 year ago

    whats the price??

  • zackantel over 1 year ago

    Will this include a display of the frequency? It would be great to have a bit that can show you the frequency of the Oscillator Bits so you can fine tune several oscillators together.

  • jay.hudson over 1 year ago

    Can't wait

  • DieterVDW over 1 year ago

    This is SOO cool!

  • Squirt1 12 months ago

    Thats so awesome cant wait till i can get the mp3 player bit or the synth kit! add that bit on top an its even better!
