Farnell expands T&M range with wireless oscilloscope probe
Distributor, Farnell has added Ikalogic to its test and measurement range. Products from the test instruments and software specialist target creative electronics and firmware engineers and include what is claimed to be the world’s first wireless oscilloscope probe.
Designed with engineers in mind, Ikalogic’s product range includes both wireless and battery operation (enabling isolation from mains voltage) and software which runs on Windows, macOS and Linux operating systems. The standard USB connection turns any computer into a measuring system allowing processing of hours of high frequency signals and identification of rare events. Add-on scripts offer in-depth analysis, says Farnell.
Key products available for same day despatch from Farnell include the IkaScope WS200. This is a portable, battery powered wireless oscilloscope probe. It connects to any Wi-Fi-enabled screen including desktop computer, tablet or smartphone to display captured signals and reliable measurements within a few seconds, claims Farnell. Patented ProbeClick technology automatically holds captured signals when the probe tip is released.
There is also the SP209 Series nine-channel, 200Msamples per second logic analyser. This features an embedded 2Gbyte sampling memory and industrial bus receivers. The SP209 can capture logic signals and analyse I2C, SPI, CAN, RS232, 1-Wire, and 30 more protocols. The performance of the SP209 does not depend on USB connection bandwidth. It is suitable for embedded systems development and debugging, serial protocols analysis, industrial bus analysis, ADC diagnostics, reverse engineering, research and educational facilities.
The distributor also offers the SQ (ScanaQuad) series, a budget logic analyser which can capture, analyse and generate logic signals on four channels, at sampling rates up to 200MHz. This allows analysis and debugging of all serial protocols. Free ScanaStudio software is included to display, decode and analyse captured signals. Device performance does not depend on USB connection bandwidth, points out Farnell. The SQ series may be used for development and debugging of embedded systems and firmware, analysis of serial protocols, reverse engineering and education.
