Analog Discovery 2 – a hand-held USB oscilloscope and multi-function instrument


A new version of Digilent Analog Discovery USB oscilloscope and multi-function instrument is available in our store. Analog Discovery 2 allows you to measure, visualize, generate, record, and control mixed-signal circuits of all kinds. It is small enough to fit in one hand, but powerful enough to replace a stack of lab equipment.


The new version not only looks more modern, but it also has better electrical characteristics than its predecessor, while keeping its huge functionality. It features among other things:

  • Two-channel oscilloscope,
  • Two-channel arbitrary function generator,
  • Stereo audio amplifier,
  • 16-channel digital logic analyzer,
  • 16-channel pattern generator,
  • 16-channel virtual digital I/O,
  • AC/DC voltmeter,
  • Network analyzer,
  • Spectrum analyzer,
  • Two programmable power supplies (0…+5 V , 0…-5 V).

Thanks to great software it allows you to easily draw Bode, Nyquist and Nichols transfer diagrams of a circuit in the range of 1Hz to 10MHz as well as analyze different digital interfaces (SPI, I²C, UART, Parallel).
