With my limited electronics knowledge I'm sure I could blow one of those scopes in short order.

Could have used some better equipment to try and decode the signal in order to hack my Greenworks 60V mower.

EDU34450A 5.5 digit multimeter:
http://literature.cdn.keysight.com/litweb/pdf/EDU34450-90002.pdf (http://literature.cdn.keysight.com/litweb/pdf/EDU34450-90002.pdf)

Shame it's not a 6.5 digit (and then of course people will want longer and longer), but with the graphing features in modern bench multimeters, should be great. I've been thinking the Keithley's seem a little nicer, but I love the big screens, really helps when you don't have the instrument right there with you.

EDU33212A Function Generator:
https://docs.rs-online.com/d5bd/A700000007406012.pdf (https://docs.rs-online.com/d5bd/A700000007406012.pdf)
This looks pretty good, for my own personal use 30MHz of square would come in handy, but I have generators that do that fine (and a few arb's, this is one I'd skip).

EDU36311A Power Supply
https://docs.rs-online.com/3089/A700000007406024.pdf (https://docs.rs-online.com/3089/A700000007406024.pdf)

If this has basic graphing of voltage & current it'd be great, and I'm currently lacking a keysight bench supply, all my HP/Agilent linear ones are now gone, and whilst I have two mainframes for the 6700 series, they're not the greatest to use as bench supplies.

Well RIP, couldn't verify my profile on Odysee, since it looks like it is required, to have viewable profile.
- Phone number verification not available in the region.
- Credit card verifcation "IP mismatch".
Now waiting for the manual form verification thing to be done lol.

first I am not using this as an entry as this is my first post here somehow
but have to say that I agree stackability would be very nice feature to add EX to the edu line and the lower trim ones often used in home labs where space is a premium
as for the teardown I would like the powersupply to be first as I personally feel they are the hardest to "cut corners" on and are often very pricey for good "lab quality" units ++ they are more interesting in design - not saying I dont want a look under the "hood" of the other pieces

Better to have small shelves to fit the instruments reasonably tight, just enough for good airflow. Much more stable than stackable light weight tall and short instruments... I have a recessed shelf right over my desk for the small, modern instruments, like my humble scope and a few others mostly home built, and a deeper one on top of that for the more vintage larger ones... Like an analog PS and a matching signal gen.

Hey Dave, Thanks for doing the giveaway, I know tons of people that really need TE and while you might not be able to help them all even helping some of these up and coming engineers will make a difference. Of course I'm in like flynn too. I am a 16-year-old student from Greece wanting to get an EE degree,
I have been developing recently laser drivers of all topologies and sizes(constant current SMPSs) An open-source 1-30v 0-5A CC CV PSU specifically designed with safety features to keep the sensitive laser diodes safe and it also connects to a second board (stacked below the output module) With some 16 bit ADCs not only to read voltage and current but to also make some basic graphs over time with their 100ks/s rate. Any microcontroller can be used with them that supports SPI.

Is it possible that Keysight are reducing production costs in the Edu range by having the same plastic shells for all products? A PSU that size is kind of unwanted, but if it makes things cheaper for universities, it can't be a bad thing.

Hi,
I know I'm a little outside the target demographic but I might as well give it a shot.
I'm a high school sophomore (10th grade) and for the past couple years I've been playing around with microwave circuit design. This year I built two radars: a GPR that cost under $50 COTS and a X-band radar with a resolution of 3 cm at -43 dBm output power. Only issue?
I don't have any test equipment except for a nanoVNA, a DMM, and an out of spec analog oscilloscope. This has been causing a lot of problems. I think I spent close to two months while working on the radars because of a simple analog issue that I couldn't find without an oscilloscope.

I think I can put the gear to good use, I always would love to take more about my projects, or to answer any questions!

Every time, same confusion with giveaway and discussion threads, I hope people won't miss the giveaway by replying at the wrong place.
What comes to the formfactor seen on video, I can't decide if I like it or not. On the other hand, it is always nice to have matching set of test equipment, but modern scopes do not stack nicely on the shelf at all. Plugging jacks in will be two hand job, or otherwise whole bin will fall down faster than you can reply "I'm in" to giveaway thread :D

Wrong thread, people!

I'm a bit conflicted about the form factor. It doesn't come across as being intended this way from the start. It just seems someone looked at an oscilloscope and went "hmmm". The kit not being easily stacked isn't convenient. I'll hold off on judgement until I can try them or can see someone else try them though. It may be better than it looks at first glance. I feel Keysight deserves a bit more leeway than a random cheap outfit and may have actually thought about it.

Well, probably not in, and switching to odysee isn't all that promising. No (official) RSS, and one cannot download videos directly (or at all?) with youtube-dl as I'm used to with the somewhat hidden Youtube RSS feeds. While mirroring videos on different platforms is a great idea, I think I might be stuck with Youtube for a bit longer.

Dave needs to hurry up with the giveaway thread link, though...

>Wrong thread, people!
Thank you so much. You so helpful  :palm:
Well, it is the wrong thread. Read the video description and see this thread is explicitly linked as not the contest thread. This one is to talk about the kit. The proper link is t.b.a. so there's not much more to say.

The vid made me realize I've never actually gotten on the forum! Read enough content here over the years...

I actually like the huge meter if there's bench space. Bit less likely to get accidentally knocked around.

I just redecorated my lab, and these machines will match the work surfaces perfectly!  $2k for all 4 - maybe a little pricey, but for the educational market that is probably a bargain.  They look really nicely designed, I'm looking forward to the reviews and teardowns.

Did you have some footage you planned to share about the instruments btw? Curious to see what your experience was.

It's the second day and I'm lost again.

Anyone know where should I go for the second day live stream?

The video on KULive right now (Will My Face Boost Car Key Range?) doesn't appear to be a live stream.

EDIT: I finally got it. Evidently I have to re-enter my data into the "Enter Now --- Sign me up" form again, despite already registering previously.

I'm in. 

I am glad to see Keysight is coming up with an offering for the education/hobbyist market, so there are more options beyond the Chinese brands.  Love to see the software that comes with it and how it compares with Benchvue.

LINKS COMING SOON to the forum and other giveaways! Check back in a little bit.


I'm wondering where to post the stories for the Dave's pick?

I did not think about Dave's pick initially. But (while watching Keysight University live) I remembered about my first encounters with a scope. In 70ties at kindergarten age 😀 Today I posted (https://www.facebook.com/jtupulis/posts/3696333110403850) it on FB. And, you can take a look at the attempt on review here (https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/soviet-oscilloscope-c1-1-teardown-(coming)/msg1602061/#msg1602061) on EEVblog. With pictures 😉

Veiksmi,
Jānis

Dave is the real Dr Who, he pulls this stuff out of the future from the Dumpster wormhole.  Sometimes from the past too....

I love the new colour of this keysight gear its winner winner chicken dinner in my eyes.


I’m in Like Flyn.

IM a home hobbyist that tinkers and builds things and learning from this forum and others.  THis Chanel is a bit more exciting though and has good pace and explanations compared to others.  So keep it up and keep it dumb for us fairly inexperienced guys please.

The EDU-series DMM just looks like odd. Like it just doesn't fit right, and is awkwardly large while not taking advantage of its size.

I still don't have a benchtop DMM (but many handheld ones), though if I did get one it would likely be something in a more conventional shape.
The rest of them, while different from the regular versions, look far more normal in their design.

Hey Dave I don't see the post on Patreon, did you not put it up yet or does it require a higher donation level than mine is?
