dannyboy 0 Posted January 28, 2012 Share Posted January 28, 2012 Hi all. I'm looking at getting myself a piece of equipment for electronics - I have about $175 AU to spend, and I've been looking at getting an oscilloscope (a self-assembly DPScope) for a while. However, that budget perfectly fits a Saleae logic analyser. My question is - which do you think I should get as a first electronics tool? I'm a uni student in computer science and mechatronics, so I'm thinking the logic analyser will be useful in future assignments - looks like I'll be working with lots of microcontrollers and such. But I find that the areas I tend to struggle with are the analogue portions of each circuit, so it'd be nice to have more than digital analysis. I'm also very interested in appropriate technology, or at least applying technology to low-tech situations, more than high-tech embedded stuff. And my multimeter is pretty cheap; it'd be nice to have a more precise tool at least for voltage measurement. Common sense tells me that since this cash windfall is a gift, I should go with the more expensive logic analyser and save up for the DPScope out of my own wallet, but what do you guys think?
