I am a scientist who is frequently tasked to characterize instrumentation ( As opposed to calibrating to NIST standards.) I noted with interest on the OpenScope Kickstarter page: "monitor long-term (create an IoT device to capture, calculate, and log readings over many hours or days)" Life would be a LOT easier if I could use an affordable solution like an OpenScope-WaveForm with two 16-bit sensors at <<1000sps each. Then I read the part about 12-bit 48 channel ADC. Well, I would settle for 12-bit, but I have to ask.. Question: Is it practical to sacrifice bandwidth and <44 channels to achieve some semblance of 16-bit resolution? I appreciate that Digilent should not be expected to cannibalize their commercial offerings in favor of the OpenScope project. I am hoping that EE wizards will find a 2-channel, 16-bit, 1000 sps OpenScope to be of no threat to their productline/market. On the other hand, it would of tremendous help to scientists! 😬 Thanks for your patience, and congratulations on a spectacular Kickstart!
