looks like a good item.
Is it USB3.0 that let you stream a lot of data to a PC harddrive?
Is it digitally isolated from usb port, incase I touch 115V by mistake with it? any risk to fry a expensive pc's motherboard?

Two-channel oscilloscope with differential inputs
Two-channel arbitrary function generator
16-channel digital logic analyzer (3.3V CMOS and 1.8V or 5V tolerant, 100MS/s)
16-channel pattern generator (3.3V CMOS, 100MS/s)
16-channel virtual digital I/O
Two input/output digital trigger signals for linking multiple instruments (3.3V CMOS)
Two-channel voltmeter (AC, DC, ±20V)
Network analyzer – Bode, Nyquist, Nichols transfer diagrams of a circuit. Range: 1Hz to 10MHz
Spectrum Analyzer – power spectrum and spectral measurements (noise floor, SFDR, SNR, THD, etc.)
Digital Bus Analyzers (SPI, I²C, UART, Parallel)
Two programmable power supplies (0…+5V , 0…-5V)
Write custom software or HDL (for the FPGA) that run directly on the ADALM2000 device.
Analog Devices’ ‘Scopy’ software package. (Windows/Linux)

    nice find,
    There are links here

    What's with the name? ADALM2000?

    Maybe WiFi is a better way to isolate these days ?

  • I'm looking forward to this also! However all I could do is to order from their main Analog Devices site and no other information is disclose as of this time.
  • That's fantastic. Especially since "scopy" is an open source cross-platform tool. Looks suspiciously like it's written using Electron, which is great.

    I think I know what my birthday present to my self is this year!


    As for isolation using WIFI. That would certainly do it. But you need power from somewhere. As it happens AD has USB isolator chips that provide signal isolation up to 2.5Kv (Using on chip transforms no less). All it needs is a little power isolation module.
  • Anyone have a guess as to how a standard Oscilloscope Probe would hook up to this device? It looks like it only haas the pin header port.

    Thanks,
    Marcus

    Looks like pin headers are the only option.

    No Coax.

  • I order one last week from Analog, as I take it will be faster than digikey/mouser, though they show available soon too.
    It says shipped from Singapore, though my ground ship option probably be by air I hope.

    I have not heard anything from Analog when I could expect it.
    I will open it up and make a breakdown of what you get for $99, I hope the parts alone cost nearly that and this is a no-profit part for Analog to get people interested/learning.


  • Looking forward to your report.

    Seems like a reasonable price. Parts, plus board, plus software development, plus documentation, etc. I know it's a sales pitch for AD but still. Being AD I don't expect it to be bad.

    Question is, does it fit what I might want to do with such a thing.

    Are they in stock? If these are being stocked in Singapore, I believed it should be faster since I live in the place beside Singapore.

    So far when I tried checking out all it said was "Backorder".

    Edit: I found another similar one which is the Digilent's Analog Discovery 2, but it's more expensive.
  • Kind of reminds me of that NI MyDaq just a lot cheaper in price. Most of my Analog IC's ship from the Philippines but this is a different device.

    It looks to me very much like the Analog Discovery. The linked document is very thorough about what's inside. No wonder they are similar. They are both at their root Analog Devices products and engineering, co-developed with Digilent. I wonder too, what is going on with Analog Devices, coming out with a competitor at lower cost.

    Analog Discovery has been around for several years. At $280, you'd expect it to be well along, but its original version 1 was also introduced at $99 for a while. As version 2, it now has tighter specs, a fancier case, and accessories, like BNC probes, and pages of tutorials and documentation. If we go to Digikey or Mouser just to buy its main ADC chip, an AD9648 (dual 14 bit 105MS/s), that alone will set us back US$80.

    I noticed the ADALM-2000 have an FPGA inside too, like the Analog Discovery 2.

    Right now I'm still waiting for the ADALM2000 to be in stock, but seems that the documentations and the software are quite sparse compared to the Analog Discovery 2.

    Any recommendations on which one is better? :)
  • Quote from Employee:
    Yes, when available, it will be shipped directly by ADI and it's distribution channels.
    Not everyone needs to use Kickstarter to make product pre-announcements . 
    It should be shipping end of May, assuming there are no issues in the final revision of hardware.
