Saelig Company (Pittsford, NY) has introduced Xprotolab - the first mixed-signal oscilloscope with an arbitrary waveform generator housed in a tiny 1" x 1.6" DIP module. It can be mounted directly on a breadboard or PCB for in situ testing and verification. Based on Atmel's ATXMEGA32A4 microcontroller, with 32KB Flash, 4KB SRAM, 1KB EEPROM, Xprotolab can also be used as a development board for the AVR's XMEGA microcontroller. Xprotolab uses a 0.96" 128 x 64 pixel OLED display to provide the functions of an 8-bit mixed-signal oscilloscope with simultaneous sampling of analog and digital signals, providing 2 analog channels and 8 digital channels. It also offers Arbitrary Waveform Generator capabilities. The maximum input voltage is +/-10V with a maximum sampling rate of 2MSa/s, giving an analog bandwidth of 320kHz.
