Cleverscope Model CS328A Oscilloscope

A USB connected, PC hosted oscilloscope and spectrum analyser. 2 analog channels, 8 digital inputs, External Trigger, 4M samples storage for each of the 2 analog and 8 digital channels,

Cleverscope Model CS328A Oscilloscope

The cleverscope CS328A is a USB 2.0 connected mixed signal PC oscilloscope which brings benefits to the user that are unavailable from traditional stand-alone oscilloscopes .

Cleverscope has complex triggering capability. Find a glitch, runt or a slow rise time problem by setting the dual triggers appropriately. Can your present scope trigger on a negative runt occurring in 0.1% of pulses?

Cleverscope Model CS328A Oscilloscope

Two 10, 12 or 14 bit analog channels sampling simultaneously at 100 MSa/sec. AC or DC coupled.

USB 2.0 Interface to the PC or 10/100Mbit ethernet, depending on option

Gain automatically set from 20 mV FSD to +/-200V FSD by choosing graph view and probe switch setting.

Offset automatically set to correspond to the selected amplitude axis view. As an example a graph with amplitude axis of 2.40 to 2.42V automatically chooses a 20mV range offset by +2.40V - good for looking at small signals in single supply op-amp applications.

Analog triggering of the waveform in view with a resolution of 1% of the display height. The analog trigger may optionally be conditioned with a low pass, high pass or noise filter.
