    Physical connection to breadboard.jpg

    That's a good looking right angle header
  2. HI Mike, we don't have plans to include those in the Kickstarter shipments, however, if you email us support@digilentinc.com and ask for Larissa/Martha, we will see what we can do. -Larissa

    Learning Edition

    Hi Everyone, this is the FINAL version of the workbook. We got edits from the technical support team and had many friends and family help read it! It's off to the printer! Digilent-OpenScope_Workbook-final.pdf

    Learning Edition

    Hello everyone! we are in process of writing the update, but our workbook has come back from the designer and it's getting prepared for printing! Digilent-OpenScope_Learning_Edition_Workbook.pdf

    Birth of an OpenScope!

    9 days left of our campaign! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/342199468/openscope-instrumentation-for-everyone
  6. Hi 

     

    Can  i   plug   CHIPKIT  BASIC I/O  SHEILD  over  CHIPKIT WF32 ?

  7. We got a series of photos of the OpenScope going through the manufacturing line. Unfortunately, Kickstarter didn't allow me to load all of them onto the update.
  8. Not sure at all, but for simple data logging this could be an option (http://www.ni.com/en-us/shop/select/multifunction-io-device?skuId=12362) Not super cheap, but it's probably has the hardware that you need without modification.
  9. HI Guys, We loaded the first version of the OpenScope Mechanical Files. We have two versions, a single extruder and a dual extruder version. Since the dual is much more complicated and still being tweaked, we are only loading the single (backers who get a 3D printed case by us will get one off of the dual extruding printer, photos attached). So check them out and let us know what you think: http://repables.com/r/821/ http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2080883 (exact same file as on repables, but on Thingiverse... we prefer repables)

    Stretch Goals?

    Yeah... I think the mini-grabbers would be helpful (get a good grip on your circuits). The other is a SD Card (good for loading and the logging) ... or a USB cable? We didn't include one because it was such a dime a dozen thing and would affect cost.

    Learning Edition

    @Dirk We are in process of developing it! Attached is a photo of the idea (on my desk, so it's a tiny bit messy). We will include the OpenScope with the needed wires (my photo has way too many in it) + a parts kit. the photo has some extras in it (the Mini Grabbers and the extra breadboard), that may not be included. The workbook would have a lesson in each of the following: 1. Intro to circuits 2. Circuit reduction 3. Modal and Mesh analysis 4. Systems 5. Op Amps 6. Energy storage 7. First Order Circuits 8. Second Order Circuits 9. Intro to state and Variable Models 10. Additional Resources.

    Stretch Goals?

    @werecatf YES. We are also in awe of how quickly it happened! It's a completely different way of doing instrumentation for us, so we weren't a 100% sure how it would take with the market. Any suggestions for stretch goals will be VERY appreciated. We are trying to brainstorm over here. re: Hardware--- we made it open source, so people could upgrade the hardware and share the improvements! There could be an upgraded one, but right now, we are focusing on the one we have! We also don't want to jeopardize the ship date. Hardware changes = longer ship date. Completely agree about the usefulness... We hate throwing silly things in boxes just for the sake of it. Thoughts so far: 1. If we hit 30K, we could afford to splurge for an injection mold for cases and include cases in the first round. 2. we have project boxes that we usually ship with our student kits. We could include one of those for free. 3. We could get USB battery packs, so the Open Scope is free to roam?

  14. Dave, you may want to use the Pmods with the chipKIT WF32, by just breadboarding them (we do this all the time). You can get long right angle headers here: http://store.digilentinc.com/pmod-female-right-angle-6-pin-header-5-pack/

    Offline simulation software for mac

    ... does it have to be offline? Otherwise, Multisim live is a really good choice: https://beta.multisim.com/ I've heard really good things about TI's Web Bench http://www.ti.com/lsds/ti/analog/webench/overview.page?DCMP=sva_web_webdesigncntr_en&HQS=sva-web-webdesigncntr-vanity-lp-en it looks like TINA-TI is available for download, but I don't know if it's in Mac OS. Also LT Spice.
