wpwrakDocScrutinizer05: (scope) depending on what price level you're looking at, you may want to have a closer look at rigol DS1000Z or and siglent SDS2000. the 1000Z should still be "hackable" by entering a code that unlocks advanced features. so you can get a basic model but use it like a better one.13:14
wpwrakthe siglent is very new and has appealing specs. the company has been around for a while and seems to do good work. sds2000 is similar to rigol's DS2000A, but specs are a bit better, the price of comparable units is considerably lower, there are 4 channel versions in the line (rigol's ds2000 only have 2), and the siglent also has optional 8 digital channels13:18
wpwrakthe rigol DS2000 series can also be "hacked", which would offset the specs and price difference, but they fixed that in the DS2000A, which is current now13:19
wpwrakbut it all depends on how many channels and what bandwidth you want13:22
rjeffriesNot a bad board, once it is real. Fair degree of open-ness, it seems: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/udoo/udoo-android-linux-arduino-in-a-tiny-single-board16:50
larscif I ever need a million or two I think I'll create one of these kickstarter projects ;)17:52
rjeffrieslarsc: ok, but on the merits, udoo is a fairly nice and reasonably open machine. It is a dufferent approach than Ben Nanonote, obviously.18:12
hozerbut will the schematics and PCB layout of the Udoo be editable?18:45
hozeranyone know much about the imx6 GPU if it's got full specs?18:46
