Some bench oscilloscopes do have web servers, but the MSO-28 has only USB. The project basically attaches a web server to the MSO-28.

Who needs oscilloscope like like Raspberry Pi ?

Laptop is good enough. Nobody controls instruments in the lab through Internet.

I think this a nonsense product. I worked on Automated Testing Systems for 40 years and no nned of such nonsense to me.

But at the end your control device still needs a keyboard of some sort...unless it will be driven by voice commands

The Raspberry Pi does not need a keyboard or monitor; it can run "headless", and you can ssh into it to interact with it.  I think the more general point is that once you provide a web interface to anything, you can interact with it from varied clients (PC, handheld, ...), and you can interact remotely.  The oscilloscope could directly provide a web interface, which would obviate the need for this Raspberry Pi intermediary.  Our routers and other appliances already do this; presumably oscilloscopes etc. will do so, soon.

Why Raspberry Pi was chosen over Beaglebone & others

"...it works with Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, and all others." Raspberry Pi was the choice...

I would be interested in knowing if there were any particular reasons, why Raspberry Pi was the choice or it was just a choice of convenience.

Build a DAQ system for about $30, about using Arduino with a LabVIEW driver.

@kris, the point is to replace the PC with a tablet or phone.

So the point here is to replace PC with Rasberry Pi board, correct? But you need to have a monitor and keyboard to input some info and observe what you are doing. That sounds like you are effectively building a small cutom PC out of the Rasberry Pi being a new motherboard, did I get that right? Kris
