Hello, I came across the Micsig scopes. Anybody tried scopes from Micsig? Are they reliable as measurement devices? From the youtube video, it seems that the lag is not as bad as the Rigol DS1054Z and it is quiet. The touch interface may be similar to the Keysight 3000T scope.

With the powerful iPad PRO and lighting/TB3 connection of the MacBook Pro, I can imagine that somebody could have written software and made an interface to create a low-cost powerful device to use with the iPad PRO or MacBook Pro.

I think they stand alone in the sub-$500 market, but I also expect the other big budget scope makers to catch up soon. Their hardware is solid, but the software still has a lot of room for improvement. You can get most basic functions working, but some features you would expect in a touchscreen device are not implemented well.

They also need to work on their English.

EDIT: Also, I would say that hardware wise, they have some unique features such as built-in battery operation, HDMI out, and WiFi that you won't find on other stock budget scopes.

Thanks. In regard to your comments that the software needs improvement... How long ago have you used their scope to make the comments? If it is awhile ago, could they have improved by now?  Am I right that their scopes are "much" better than scopes like the Oscium's, DSO Nano v3, JYETech DSO 138 DIY, Longruner DSO 138 Open Source, SainSmart and Hantek USB based scopes, etc.? I think at least the Micsig scopes have higher bandwidth (up to 200Mhz and 4 channels).

The video shows the model tBook which is larger and more expensive than the mini tBook.  The mini tBook models are newer and the price is sub $500.

The scopes you mention like the DSO Nano, etc... they are really toys.  They might be good if you need the scope just a couple of times a year to test something, but definitely I don't recommend them for daily use.

Thanks. How the Micsig scopes compared with the Rigol 1054z and the new keysight 1000x series? I read that the Rigol's software is also not that good.

There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.

There was no mention about the Mucsig and other tablet oscilloscopes. Besides, the thread became some kind of debates.

Have just bought a TO1104 from Telonic in the U.K LINK REMOVED as I needed something portable. The touch screen takes a bit of getting used to, but it seem pretty intuitive. so far so good... :)

"Johnbrown" actually works for Telonic.
