Girino - Fast Arduino Oscilloscope

Featured

Step 26: To be continued...

Picture of To be continued...
The project if far from completed, though. What it is missing is:
  1. A test with different analog signals (I am missing an analog signal generator);
  2. A Graphical User Interface for the computer side.
While for point 1. I am not sure when it will be completed, because I am not planning to buy/build one in the near future.

For point 2. the situation could be better. Is anyone willing to help me with that? I found a nice Python Oscilloscope here:

I would like to modify it to fit it for Girino, but I am accepting suggestions.

Awesome Instructables! Very well done!

is the source code done in the arduino sketch editor or was it done in C++ code on another compiler? Just curious...thanks

Well I usually code with VIM so I basically wrote the code with VIM and then opened and compiled it with the arduino IDE.

Thank you very much for this project! That's exactly what I was looking for. I think I will write the Qt/Qwt interface as soon as I'm done with the soldering.

Any recent update to the schemes?

Thank you!

No, there have not been any updates so far. I was planning to work more on this project, but some work problem denied that and are still denying.

I am still considering the idea of putting this project somewhere like Sourceforge.

For an alternative implementation of an oscilloscope, which uses an Arduino for data acquisition, please have a look at LXARDOSCOPE, available from Sourceforge. There is also a section on an investigation into the accuracy of the ADC; it includes schematics for a preamplifier which works from the same 5V supply as the Arduino.

You can build a simple analog signal generator with an Arduino driving a R-2R resistor network (google the term and you'll get plenty of hits) from an 8-bit port. Use 1% resistors and you'll get almost 8 bits of resolution. You can the scale an buffer the signal with an op-amp stage. Just a few cents worth of parts apart from the arduino.

Here is such a project that uses an AVR, ready to be copied:

Amazing, great job!
For a GUI you could use Qt which is free and coded in C++.
Check my instructables to get an overview of what Qt could do.

Good luck
