Xprotolab: oscilloscope and Xmega development board - Hack a Day

Xprotolab: oscilloscope and Xmega development board

Here’s a nice hands-on overview of the Xprotolab, a development board based around the AVR ATxmega32A4 microcontroller. The tiny DIP package includes an OLED display, four tactile switches, and it can be powered via a micro USB connector. The device ships ready to use as a two-channel Oscilloscope, but check out how small it is in the video after the break to decide if this will actually be useful for you. It’s not that it doesn’t have a lot of features, in fact it’s packed with them, but that screen is quite small for meaningful work. Still, at $35 it’s an inexpensive way to get your hands on the hardware and acquaint yourself with this line of microprocessors. Not that in order to flash new firmware you will need a PDI capable programmer.

The XMEGA Xprotolab looks Really Nice!:) I have an old Oscilloscope that didn't work when I got it. I bought it in an Auction along with some other AV Gear. I've hung on to it hoping to be able to fix it one day. I wonder if this board would be able to display it's output on the Analog 6 inch Display on my old Oscilloscope? I wrote Gabotronics and asked. We'll see what they say...
