Parallax has been awesome to release so many of their books free online.
Understand Signals is one of those books.
www.parallax.com/Portals/0/Downloads/docs/prod/sic/Signals.pdf (http://www.parallax.com/Portals/0/Downloads/docs/prod/sic/Signals.pdf)

In it's current form it is designed for the Parallax USB Scope and BASIC stamp.

We could easily team up and adapt the 137 pages to the Propeller Demoboard
and the new USB PropScope.

We need people who will be willing to help revamp the material to create
an "Unofficial" Propeller version of the book. If several will adopt a chapter
we could give something great to the community.

Being a new PropScope owner and scope newbie I'm not qualified to work
on chapter 1. I'll take Chapter 2 and work on spin conversions of the existing code.

Can we get a few more volunteers for this project?
Anyone else up for a little divide and conquer?

I think it is a great idea.
Changing the first chapter for the propScope shouldn't be a big deal. After all it is also a PC based Oszi. Figures must go, now probes should be shown as well as the demoboard or whatever Propeller-powered system is used trought the book.

I can try to prune some ready version if you want http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/wink.gif

That is a great idea and hope that it comes to light.
