Tech Note 284 Detail

Oscilloscope replacement

Affected Products:

CI-6400 ScienceWorkshop 500 Interface

Problem/Symptom:
Can the SW500 be used as an oscilloscope?

PASCO Solution:
The refresh rate is quite slow: on a 600 MHz PIII running Win 2K, the ScienceWorkshop 500 interface only manages a maximum of 2.1 frames/second. With the CI-6759 USB-to-serial adapter and the ScienceWorkshop 500 interface, the refresh rate increases to approximately 10-11 frame/second. We recommend the ScienceWorkshop 750 as a scope replacement for higher speed experiments.
