Product Description

Electronics Hobbyists, Learn How To Build An Oscilloscope: Great Test Gear For Little Cost


You've found an exciting electronics project. You've built it and can't wait to see it in action. You switch it on and then what?...

You are going to need test equipment. A multimeter is essential and cheap but it will only take you so far. What you really want is a digital oscilloscope, the ultimate tool of any electronics engineer or hobbyist.

Follow this book, make it your next project and you will have an oscilloscope to fault find and explore your future circuits with.

Full construction projects:

  • Oscilloscope
  • Calibrator
  • Signal Generator
This book is about how I built a dual trace sound card oscilloscope, calibrator and signal generator project from start to finish. I've recorded my steps in detail so that you can build one too. I describe all the circuits and how to build them into small cases that sit nicely on your desk. I tell you where you can buy the components, where to download the computer oscilloscope software and how to use it.

Build the projects and learn:

  • What an oscilloscope is and how to use one
  • Why you need an oscilloscope
  • How to calibrate a sound card oscilloscope
  • What a signal generator is and how to use one
  • How to build circuits on stripboard
  • How to work with enclosures and put your projects into neat boxes
  • How to use two very different oscilloscope applications for your PC
  • Enough theory to understand how it all works but not too much


Also covered:

Waveforms, frequency analyzers, phase shift, Lissajous figures, working with plastic enclosures, simple mechanical design, practical experiments, case studies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read. Build. Learn. 29 July 2014
By Daniel Grant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am an electronics hobbiest with 30 years plus of DIY experience and primarily self taught through reading. I haven't seen a book of this aptitude in a long time. Steve Garratt is personable in his writting and challenges you to enjoy learning while reading this well written, fun and very easy to follow book. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the field of electronics no matter how new or advanced!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Informative 22 December 2014
By Maurice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The sound card scope is an excellent device for the novice in electronics. It is low dollar and low risk and gives you an introduction to viewing waveforms. The text is conversational. The construction techniques in the text are helpful in showing how you can approach things. I am looking forward to the author presenting another such book
5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful guide on building a very cheap oscilloscope 25 July 2014
By Oyvind Dahl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really liked how this book provided clear instructions on how to build a oscilloscope from home. Oscilloscopes are extremely useful, but usually very expensive. In this book, the author showed how to do everything from soldering the components to making a nice box for the project.

It gives you exactly what the title promises. A sound card oscilloscope. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone interested in DIY electronics.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worthless, at least 28 September 2016
By William Farver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
NOT what I expected. The book is all about how to build a "PROBE" and the product description made me think that it was what I was actually after, "a book on how to build a USB Oscilloscope". The probes are the easiest part of the scope to build, you can get the design information for those FOR FREE on the internet in 30 seconds. This book has taught me absolutely NOTHING, it gets a -4 (minus four)...
