Default TiePie Handyscope-HS3-100MHz ??

Does anyone here have any practical experience with this computer controlled measuring system ?
http://www.tiepie.com/uk/products/Ex...scope_HS3.html

I'm thinking to clean a bit out on my workspace, and think that some kind of "all in one" will do most of the measuring jobs I do on my circuits....

God and bad! Let me know

Thanks in advance

Jan I have one (the 25Mhz version). The scope/multimeter/logger/spctrum analyzer works great. Needs some getting used to, but a usefull addition to my bench.

I'm not too thrilled about the AWG. It's pretty limited, although they say that you can feed it with a file previously recorded from the scope etc.

If I would have to buy something like that again I would probably take a look at their HS4 with the two differential inputs option. That would be more usefull, to be able to measure a voltage somewhere in a circuit and not against ground only. But I'm not sure how the CM rejection would hold up versus frequency.

Thanks janneman

It seems like my doubts regarding the AWG was right.....
Thnaks for confirming this.

I see the advantage of HS4, and share your concern regaring CM.

Are there other products out there, that are being used by one of the members here, which may be a better choise ???

Default PicoScope?

Sorry I can't offer any experience here. In fact I have the same question regarding the picoscope USB systems. I've been contemplating to save the money to buy one...

http://www.picotech.com/oscilloscope.html

the 3200 series seems comparable to the TiePie. Any comments one way or the other for pico? Seems so far, we have a +1 for the tiepie ;-)

Thanks in advance for any info!

I would like to avoid Pico products, as we had a Pico Datasampling kit at the company i work for. We had so many software issues, that 1/3 of all measurement had to be repeated because the software stopped responding........

Ok the software is a few years old, and they may have improved the stabillity (but I don't dare to be the one to test it)
