Elan's Tiny Oscilloscope Measures Up for Scandinavia

FAREHAM, UK -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 11, 2005 -- The newly launched miniature USB oscilloscope, USBScope50, has taken Scandinavia by storm. Designers of the product, Elan Digital, report that they have been inundated with enquiries and initial orders from distribution companies in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway and are now planning to ramp up production of the USBScope50.

"We are getting an unprecedented level of interest in this product, particularly from Scandinavian countries which appear to be more open to new concepts," says Julian Barnard, Elan's Managing Director. "And of course because of the low cost and portability, it means that every engineer can have one." The use of USB interface means that there is no need for an external power source plus the USBScope50 is compatible with all laptops, desktops and even embedded PCs.

The USBScope50 is the first fully isolated, full-function, single-channel oscilloscope, which is smaller than a marker pen. By clipping two (or more) USBScope50s together they form a dual/multi channel device thanks to a unique synchronisation feature.

This miniature scope features 100MHz analogue bandwidth, 50Msamples/sec one-shot acquisition and 1 Gsamples/sec equivalent time sampling (for repetitive waveforms) and is compatible with any standard scope probes. The unit comes with easy to use USBScope software for Windows.

Elan Digital plan to launch a series of miniaturised test and measurement products in the near future.
