Handheld scope reviews

I wrote some reviews of handheld scopes some years ago. See Handheld oscilloscope evaluations.

The links to the individual reviews are broken now, but if you search on each model number, you'll get the link.

5MHz does not make a performacne scope, but it's good for audio and power supplies.

Janine, I have an Oscium iOS scope. It has one analog channel and four logic inputs. Being able to use your fingers to zoom in on a signal surely beats turning a knob. I have asked several scope makers if they would ever emulate that on their instruments. The answer is the same, "if there's demand, but people are so sued to their knobs."

Give it time.

The iMSO-104 works better on an iPad than an iPhone becuase of the bigger screen. I haven't tried it on an iPad mini.

Any of the "latest" scopes not on the list? What's your favorite?

Yes I would

 

But the input bandwidth could be a problem. 5-MHz.

Brian Dipert (along with Paul Rako) did a review of this over on EDN.  Looks like a reasonable option for anyone whose applications are within its capabilities and who needs a portable solution, or just doesn't have room for a benchtop model.

What do you make of the iPhone scope on page 4 of this piece? Would you use it?

Scopes, especially the mixed signal ones, are in a position to pick off some other test equipment commonly used. Anyone using a scope for an app today that they needed a specialized piece of test equipment for in the past?
