Scanalogic 2 Logic Analyzer Review

The Scanalog 2 is a great inexpensive tool for hobbyists looking to debug digital issues, especially if they can’t afford an oscilloscope. ┬áDebug SPI, I2C, Serial UART, 1-Wire, Maple Bus (more to come with software updates). You can even inspect that PWM or RC servo signal to make sure your arduino is outputting what you think it should.
Features:

  • 20Msps on 4 channels
  • 1.8V – 5V level detection
  • 256k samples of storage on each line
  • Playback on all 4 lines, or just 2 while reading from other 2

Wishlist:

  • Better Triggering
  • More flexible output–static pwm to control RC servos, for instance, or just for a clock generator.
About

CuriousInventor launched in late 2006 (pre-arduino era!) as a place to enable hobbyists, students, and musicians to create their own technology. We sold open-source kits and tools, and offered numerous guides & videos on things like soldering, metal working, screws, electronics, and more. 

The store is now mostly empty, but we’ve kept the product pages and guides up since they have useful information. Many of our guides and videos still rank on the first page of google searches and have been seen millions of times.
