X-Y-Oscilloscope-Tracer, for Cat lovers!!
« on: March 27, 2020, 11:15:15 am »
We've all played with a Scopes XY tracer settings for testing components.
This guy takes it to a new level, when outputting signals from his pc/laptop
using an array of specialized software.  (Will see where the 'cat' comes in!)  8)
Maybe this can be repurposed for something practical ??....

Not to rain on your parade  ;D, but using XY mode of scopes to display all kinds of stuff is nothing new really. There are many fun demos out there, and the obligatory clock. Like this: http://tuxgraphics.org/electronics/scopeclock/oscilloscope_clock.shtml

Regarding how to proceed, it's a lot like the old vector displays worked too.

The most advanced thing people have done with vector mode is oscilloscope music, and that's been out for years now.
