This just happened to catch my eye

http://uk.farnell.com/buynowpaylater?CMP=ADV-GRUK-T&M-BNPL-T
Link from a 'random' advert on a web page, what caught my attention was the mention of oscilloscopes, does anyone still use one?  If so, what do you use it for?

Re: This just happened to catch my eye

With digital technology being so prevalent these days I'd be surprised if there were many real hard core people left who were still experts in analogue waveforms to be honest. That said, I've been lusting after a scope for many years but never had the money for one lol and completely given up hope now.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Plenty of people using sillyscopes out there, the world of electronics wouldn't work without people probing about with them, just ask Dave:

Re: This just happened to catch my eye

digital circuits still have signals in them, silly scopes can be used to see how clean that signal is to identify bad parts on a board but its less likely to find someone doing it considering most things are considered disposable .....

How does that work then? - I'm assuming your probe is a blue tooth one?
