But the icons….

It is only that Apple changed their icons lately in a very horrible design. Yikes! (Crying out loud:) " I want my icons back "....

Back on topic: This is a very good idea, but not more than a logical development step. The interface has been done, it is there, the iPad. I always wondered why people would pay for a windoze computer in a box, while the rest in the same box is from the '70s (well often, but not always as with modern oscilloscopes) But hey, lots of us have to agree that our old HP stuff from the '70s and '80s still is doing a good job for us. The IEEE interface is a bit cumbersome, but playing with IEEE to USB dongles takes the old gear to a higher plan.

Personally -as an engineer- I think that the measurement equipment manufacturers are going to get a hard time: Less and less companies dare to do hardware design. It is all box-2-box design (unfortunately) and thus software developement. This is good and bad for our industry, but I think bad for the measurement equipment manufacturers.

Buying generators, network analyzers and spectrum analyzers I always had a reference: How many MHz for a buck on the 2nd hand market. Nowadays I do not dare to do this anymore: A friend of mine bought an Anritsu 3GHz analyzer for EUR 1100 (= $1400) while my reference 10 years ago was EUR 1000 for each GHz. Wow!

@Sanjib, I don't know of anything for a Windows phone, but you'd think writing the software would be easier for a company with other Windows-based products.

Nice feature!

Are you aware of any low cost oscilloscope & logic analyzer solution available for smaller development use (home use)which would work along with any Windows phone?

I've been saying the same thing to T&M companies over the last few years. If students in chem lab can run their instruments with an iPad.... Anyway, one of the most memorable implemetations I saw of a touchscreen interface was last year on Keithley's SMU.

Oscium Instruments are revolutionary

Its nice to see that Agilent has finally caught up with Oscium.

In addition to Scopes, Oscium produces Logic Analysers and Power/Spectrum analysers.  They are more convenient to use than a large bench scope as they utilise the User Interface of your iPad, iPod or iPhone.

In Europe, Oscium instruments are stocked by The Debug Store based in the UK.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
