Win the RS Pro Digital Oscilloscope: Revitalised DB50XGFollow article
1) Tell us how you would put the Scope to use in your next project.
I designed my last project with a vintage Tektronix oscilloscope - well past its best days but it still served me well. Having the more advanced features of a DSO would make my next project much easier to test and debug. Being able to decode serial data streams would be a big bonus!
2) What has been the article you liked the most in DesignSpark.
I liked 'Getting The Most Out Of Your Oscilloscope: Setup' https://www.rs-online.com/designspark/getting-the-most-out-of-your-oscilloscope-setup, along with its follow-up and related articles. This has given me an insight into what a modern 'scope can offer.
3) Include a photo of a project you have made or worked on.
This is an image of my mistralXG project. The project reused an old sound daughterboard to provide a standalone synthesiser with USB MIDI capability. Debugging was quite a challenge without professional tools but gave me a real sense of satisfaction when complete.
