Hardware: PSoC 5LP-based CY8CKIT-059 programmed as a CyScope
Support Materials: Create a two-channel oscilloscope and 100 KHz waveform generator for under $20.00. The PSoC 5LP-based CY8CKIT-059 is a Programmable System on Chip featuring programmable digital, configurable analog, and a Cortex 3 MCU all on a single chip. The CyScope project is completely open-source and can be found on Github. When programmed as a CyScope, this kit becomes a 100 KHz waveform generator and a dual-channel oscilloscope. It is currently being used as part of the take-home test equipment and in projects at Arizona State University in EGR 304 "Embedded Systems Design Project", at MIT in 6.115 "Microcomputer Project Laboratory", and is under evaluation for use at several other universities in the USA and EU. The kit is re-programmable so it has a multitude of uses in digital, analog, and MCU-based courses and projects.
