The BitScope Raspberry Pi Oscilloscope
BitScope Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes and Analyzers are fully compatible with Raspberry Pi.
Connect any BitScope via USB or Ethernet with Raspberry Pi to build a complete stand-alone mixed signal oscilloscope, logic analyzer, spectrum analyzer and waveform generator.
Tiny, just like Pi
A perfect companion for Raspberry Pi is BitScope Model 10 or BitScope Micro. These tiny BitScopes are USB powered (by Raspberry Pi) and can be used with BitScope DSO or any other supported BitScope software all of which run directly on the Pi.
Very Low Power
Like the Pi itself, these BitScopes are very low power. Unlike a lot of other gear, this means you don't need a USB hub. Simply connect directly to the Raspberry Pi, add a monitor and mouse, and you're good to go.
Programmable Test, Measurement & Data Acquisition
Regardless of which BitScope you choose, the ~BitScope Library is also available making it easy to create your own embedded test, measurement or data acquisition applications using BitScope and Raspberry Pi. Program in C/C++, Python or Pascal using an easy to use programming API. Here is a simple C waveform capture example and another in python that reports on BitScope capabilities. High speed mixed signal data acquisition is now a reality on Raspberry Pi.
BitScope & Raspberry Pi - the complete electronics projects lab!
Of course Raspberry Pi works as a very capable little network server and this can be used very effectively with any model BitScope but it's ideal for low power USB connected models including BS10 and BitScope Micro.
You can access BitScope remotely via X or VNC or run BitScope Server and access it directly from any PC or Mac running BitScope Software.
It's even possible to run your own software or third party applications built with BitScope Library this way.
All that's needed is a 5V USB power source and network connection, even WiFi can be used. Whether you run the software directly on Raspberry Pi using a local monitor and keyboard, remotely via X or VNC or using the server, software operation is fast and efficient for such a low power computer because BitScope has been optimized specifically for Raspberry Pi.
BitScope Micro & Raspberry Pi - the perfect combination !
BitScope Micro for Pi
BitScope Micro is our newest model configured as a small Mixed Signal Scope in a Probe.
It's built especially for Raspberry Pi!
BitScope Micro is an Oscilloscope, Logic Analyzer, Waveform & Clock generator and Spectrum Analyzer all in one tiny, light weight and low cost package.
Despite its small size it's still a full feature BitScope and it also works with Windows, Mac OS X or Linux.
It's the go anywhere problem solver that fits in the palm of your hand!
For more information check out Raspberry Pi's BitScope Micro page and the product release page.
