Saving images from DSO MINI v2 ossiloscope
At Google, there is a fantastic tool to reward employees for going the extra mile to help... called a peer bonus. It really helps driving the right behaviour.
So - when I recently received one of these, I bought myself a DSO Nano. It's a fantastic little pocket sized oscilloscope that have now been so beneficial in understanding some of the electronics that cross my path. E.g. most recently, I could not get a DS18B20 to talk to my Raspberry Pi A+ (as part of my home automation), but hooking the DSO to the pins quickly made me realise I had a poor power connection to thermometer.
The DSO (Digital storing oscilloscope) should be able to *store*... and it does... but until today I've not been able to get the DSO Nano to write to the Micro SD card.
Well, now it does :)
- I'm running BenF Firmware v 3.64
- I've got a micro SD card that is 2GB (some struggled with more than 2GB)
- The instructions is, imho not clear on the steps to capture an image, so here are my instructions documented below:
Power up the DSO, add micro SD card. Get your signal on the display as per usual (see manual) and then navigate to "FI" with +/- buttons.
Press "M" to get to menu for "FI" (files). With "Save Img" highlighted ...
PRESS AND HOLD the "M" button.
Hope this helps!
