A new version of DSO is now available. Read about it here.
The main features of this software are:
The screenshot above shows the SCOPE instrument displaying 4 analog signals simultaneously.
There are many other configurations to display analog waveforms, spectra, X-Y plots, and timing diagrams in various combinations. The following pages describe all these capabilities in detail.
DSO is Cross Platform and Theme Aware
What DSO looks like and what it can do depends on the operating system, your selected theme and BitScope model.
Other Linux distributions and desktop environments work similarly.
Mac OSX support is coming soon too.
Our preference is Debian Redmond and Windows Classic so most of the screenshots throughout this site are taken from these two operating systems and deskstop themes.
DSO is Easy, Fast and Interactive
BitScope DSO is not your average WIMP software with multiple windows, pull-down menus or complicated forms.
Instead it uses one form designed to work like a real test instrument with buttons, controls and parameter displays.
DSO is fast to use. Everything you need to know is shown live on screen and all you need to do is adjust controls.
Buttons, controls and parameter displays are used by clicking on them and almost all of them can be right-clicked to pop-up a context menu to select an option, as shown here for the display format.
If in doubt about what a control does simply click it or pop-up the menu and see what happens.
