A Full Electronics Lab on a Single Board

If you do any sort of experimentation with electronics, you at least need a voltmeter to see what’s going on. Beyond that, you would want an oscilloscope to graph changes in waveforms, along with a power supply, generator, and a number of other gadgets that you’ll eventually acquire when you have the need and money for them.

For all of that functionality in one package, the Omniboard — now on Kickstarter — gives you all of that and more for around $35. It can be used as a 3-channel oscilloscope at 10MSPS, a 5MSPS waveform generator, and a voltmeter that can read four channels at a time.

But that’s not all. The Omniboard is an AVR ISP programmer or an Arm SWD debugger, as well as an I2C/SPI host adapter. It can also act as a standalone device using an Arduino-style TFT touch shield, or can interface with a computer for even more features via its five GPIO ports and programming capabilities.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
