USBscope50 marks a new era in ultra portable modular instrumentation for the PC or notebook. Using a USB1.1 or USB2.0 port on the host computer, USBscope50 offers the best of all worlds for converting your PC into a powerful diagnostic tool: tiny size, low power, low cost, modularity and high performance.

A single USBscope50 can be operated as a one-channel scope, or can be stacked with other USBscope50s to make a multi-channel solution. In this configuration, each module shares its phase and trigger status with the other modules in the stack ensuring tight channel-to-channel matching and concurrent triggering, plus each module retains a dedicated USB connection to the host ensuring independent configurability.

USBscope50 is small enough to be carried in a shirt pocket or laptop bag and yet retains features normally reserved for scopes 10 times its size. It uses standard BNC type scope probes, and is powered directly from the host port. It can be directly plugged into a host USB port or can be connected via a standard male-to-female USB cable. In multi-channel mode, this cabled operation is required and typically an external USB Hub would be used to provide the extra USB ports.
