Oscium's New iMSO-104 Oscilloscope Powered By Cypress's PSoC® 3 Device Turns iPod touch, iPhone and iPad into Easy-to-Use Mixed Signal Scopes
PSoC 3 Handles Apple’s Proprietary Interface For iOS Devices While Processing Incoming Analog and Digital Signals for Intuitive Scope System That’s Both Affordable and Portable
The iMSO-104 from Oscium is the first mixed-signal oscilloscope that leverages Apple’s ubiquitous iOS devices. It is the smallest, most portable scope in the world, making it the ideal solution for hobbyists and students, as well as field sales and application engineers. It boasts a 5 MHz bandwidth and up to 12 MSPS (megasamples per second) sample rate, while simultaneously analyzing up to one analog and four digital signals. In conjunction with the iMSO app (available for download from the Apple App Store) and Apple’s intuitive multitouch user interfaces, brilliant displays, and computation power, the iMSO-104 delivers the easiest, most intuitive scope solution on the market. The iMSO-104 sells for US$279.99. More information is available at www.oscium.com.
Oscium engineers were able to quickly and easily interface to iOS devices using
“Our engineers selected the PSoC 3 platform because it delivers the perfect combination of low-power consumption, processing power, and flexible communications interfaces,” said Bryan Lee, President of Oscium. “Our focus is on making test equipment more intuitive and easier to use. We call it innovation for inventors. PSoC 3 helps us deliver on that promise.”
“We’re very pleased to see PSoC 3 adding value to this innovative yet handy product, which taps into Apple’s massive iOS installed base,” said Leon Tan, marketing manager for
PSoC -- Because Change Happens
PSoC devices employ a highly configurable system-on-chip architecture for embedded control design, offering a flash-based equivalent of a field-programmable ASIC without lead-time or NRE penalties. PSoC devices integrate configurable analog and digital circuits, controlled by an on-chip microcontroller, providing both enhanced design revision capability and component count savings. A single PSoC device can integrate as many as 100 peripheral functions saving customers design time, board space and power consumption while improving system quality and reducing system cost.
The new PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures include high-precision programmable analog capability (up to 20-bit resolution for an Analog to Digital Converter) and expanded programmable digital resources integrated with powerful, industry-standard MCU cores and ample memory and communications peripherals. PSoC 3 devices are based on a high-performance 8-bit 8051 processor, while PSoC 5 devices include a powerful 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 processor. The products provide designers with a seamless, programmable design platform, enabling easy migration from 8 to 32 bits. The robust features of these new solutions dramatically expand the applications and markets that PSoC can address, including automotive, portable medical, industrial and many more. The PSoC 1 family is based on a cost-optimized 8-bit M8C core. More information about PSoC products is available at www.cypress.com/psoc and free online training is at www.cypress.com/psoctraining.
