Product Information

This model has been superceded by BS10U.

BS50U is our pocket sized USB mixed mode digital oscilloscope and logic analyzer.

About the same size and weight as a Pocket PC, this highly portable USB powered BitScope needs no bulky accessories. It has similar mixed signal, analog and logic capture capabilities as all BitScopes and it even includes some of its own unique features such as a built-in high speed logic pattern generator.

BS10 has one BNC analog input and 2 additional analog inputs on the POD. The use of low power SMT technology, innovative design, and just one shared memory capture buffer means BS50U is small, rugged, lightweight and low power.

[1] Analog capture from the BNC input is available on channel A only however both channels are available via the POD inputs.
[2] Input bandwidth refers to the analog input circuitry and compensated A/D converter.
[3] User selectable analog input multiplier with x10 gain for use with low level signals.
[4] Specifies minimum measurable peak-to-peak sinusoidal waveform voltage when both resolution enhancement and input multiplier are enabled, when viewed as a waveform (Time) or viewed as a spectrum (Freq), and the minimum measurable average DC voltage (Mean).
[5] Unlike the larger BitScopes, BS50U uses shared memory data capture. When mixed mode (ie, analog + logic) is enabled, the sample rates and buffer depth are halved.
[6] In addition to the fast sample rates, a wide range of "slow clock" and "burst clock" rates are supported (to below 1 Hz). Burst clocking also supports further increased bit resolution (ENOB).
[7] Specifies the maximum effective number of bits (ENOB) achieveable with resolution enhancement enabled.
[8] The waveform generator is standard with BS50U. Note: unlike BS310U, concurrent waveform capture on BS50U is not possible when the generator is enabled.
[9] Like all BitScopes the BS50U POD interface provides power, ground and control signals in addition to the logic and analog capture inputs. However this POD includes signal conditioning which means a seperate cable and Logic POD is not required. Simply plug the logic and analog probes into the POD connector directly !
[10] BS50U is USB bus powered. However if used with unpowered hubs or if using POD power for your own circuits our UPP-02 Universal AC adaptor and US power cable may be purchased as options for use with this product.

Logic and Analog probe leads for use via the POD are included.

Analog oscilloscope and specialized logic probes and leads are sold seperately.
