The idea is pretty good even similar product has been available in iTune store. The DIY mentality is very important for next generation to step up to the next big thing. ;)

Perhaps suitable for emergencies, but there are far better commercial products that can turn your mobile -- especially your tablet -- into not only a signal generator, but a logic analyzer, oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, etc.

I remember at a trade show in the 90s, an engineer talked about a colleague who held up a PDA and asked him what it was. The guy replied that it was a Palm Pilot. His colleague said,"No, it's a 286 computer." That smart phone in your hand? It's got more processing capabilityand more memory than the early Cray computers. Think about it – a supercomputer in your hand. We live in amazing times.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
