I don't see it going over well. People want knobs. Also you gave no specs.

Does it have wifi? Does it have a full OS like Windows 7/8, mini OS like RT or CE, Linux, custom?

To make this absolutely clear:
full touch. no knobs
Fuck, no. No knobs, no sale.

And really, how is this different from all the DSO Nano junk people try pushing to inexperienced beginners?

How 'bout a video of someone using it so we can see waveform update and general usability?

It's a portable or rather a large handheld (battery and optional isolated inputs), I guess it depends on how you look at it but few if any handhelds have knobs. Like everything it's a wait and see.

As well as the "1GMHz" it boasts "up to" 5GSa/s, 200,000wfms/s and 360Mpts memory depth. Oh, and an integrated 6 1/2 digit multimeter and a waveform generator.

http://micsig.gmc.globalmarket.com/products/details/micsig-tablet-oscilloscope-tbook-series-to72-70m-2-channels-3355852.html

All of these world-class specifications are repeated three times on the page, so they must be true...

That's quite the little thing. I don't see fitting much internal shielding in there. So... your specs look decent, if they're true, but quote me this one: noise floor. How much of its own clock and power crap gets picked up? I want to be able to look at a signal at 10mV/div without having to guess how much of what I see is actually coming up the probe cable.

Fuck, no. No knobs, no sale.

This was my first thought as well. But once in a while, touchscreen is done right. Can you do it right? I don't just want LCD buttons to smear my fingers on, I want an intuitive touch interface with proper tactile manipulation of the data. Show it in use!

Also... can a few heavy, thick cables plugged into it knock it down? There is definitely an advantage to equipment filled with bricks...

BTW, Micsig are not spamming the forum, they have permission to post here.
The form factor aside, the specs seem very impressive for a new company.
I do wonder where they get their 1GHz front end from, and 300K/wfmssec, I'm mean, that sort of bandwidth and speed doesn't just pop out of nowhere from scratch from a new company.

Yes. How long would this puppy last in a typical lab before going walkabout and tucked away in someones draw...

As for knobs, well, I don't know of any hand held scope on the market that has knobs?

Isn't that in 1 GHz range, the BNC is simply not the right connector anymore ?  :-//

Unless its a "GMHz", then I don't have any clue at all.  :-DD

You found EEVBlog - good first step.

Now - if you want to sell some of these the next step is to send one to Dave for a proper review..

With 4 channels you don't need external trigger.

They have a whole range 2-4 channels and various bandwidths

several years ago, we used the button cell phone, but now we are using the touch cell phone.  ;D ;D

which is eaiser and more convenient, and you will choose.

As for knobs, well, I don't know of any hand held scope on the market that has knobs?

That's why I don't want handheld scopes. But this one can't even be hand-held properly.

It is a 60 mm thick 10" tablet, weighting 1.8 kg. Just some kind of grove on the top back side, no grip, and the probe cables going out to the left.



So if you are a right hander you can't just hold that thing in your left hand and keep fondling it with your right hand. If you change hands, you'll quickly get tired holding that 60 mm brick in your right hand and touching with the left. You can't hold it in both hands and try to touch-operate it with your thumbs, unless you have super large thumbs.

So you have to have it lying flat or standing on its tilt. This thing is at best portable.


And while we are at it:

CAT rating? Independently verified?
