    Anyone used one of these?...

    https://www.crowdsupply.com/andy-haas/haasoscope

    It's plenty fast enough for my current project and I need four channels.

    It would allow me to share live screens with my client on Skype - my
    main scope can't do that, and I'm too mean to spend a lot.

    If I used a webcam for the 'scope people might expect me to turn it
    round and use it for me, but I'm happier with audio and sharing screens.

    My office is in my house, and I'm rarely presentable.

    I don't understand what it does. It has no screen, just a sort of blinking light at the top of the board. I don't see anything about a useful display. They talk about "user software", even in the context of changing the trigger by customizing the "
    firmware". Really? I have to recompile HDL to change the trigger?

    WTF is this thing?

    Yeah, I get it now. I tend to shy away from the gadgets where you have to find details through the grapevine, but you might try asking at eevblog.com. This is right up their alley. I bet you can start a year long thread.

    It's an expandable multi-channel analog front end. Connect
    to virtually any digital channel (even serial ports are supported) .

    small LCD screen not fit for any purpose

    ... that's the display from a cellphone, which is a convenient but low-end option.


    Video output to large LCD monitor, laptop, tablet, smartphone (remote screen) is the must

    Lots of uses for data logging, that don't require a display interface.

    It has digital outputs, not video (no video rate dependence), and isn't a fake product.
    Only real issue with it, is the input gain/attenuation aren't as flexible as (for instance) a full digital o'scope.
    Four inputs, though, are 100 MHz and twelve more go over 1 MHz for sample rate.

    We have a FLIR thermal imager with a horrible non-standard USB cable

    I have built thermal imager based on Night Vision system, converting grey scale image into thermal map.
    Project is highly intelligent, based on AI learning algorithms for flashing objects with IR light gradient to get thermal response.

    Spent $200 for Night Vision and one-month for scripting job to get thermal maps.

    There is no other way to get high-resolution thermal maps and it doesn't matter if you pay $1000 or $1M

    At the same time I can get fullHD Night Vision at $300 + real time image processing to get thermal maps for free

    We design electronics (on topic!) and need to know temp rise on really
    tiny parts. The cheap imagers won't focus close enough to scope small
    stuff.

    We got a free sample of a Flir benchtop thing (that's another story)

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/y8gjiyysz8tc3xd/Demo_Imager.JPG?raw=1

    but it's useless to us. They deliberately made the focus
    not-adjustable so that it can't work up close. The support post keeps
    it from working with any reasonably-sized PCB.

    I think Flir bought Extech to kill their upcoming thermal imager
    product line.

    Anyone used one of these?...

    It's plenty fast enough for my current project and I need four channels.

    It would allow me to share live screens with my client on Skype - my >>> >> >>> main scope can't do that, and I'm too mean to spend a lot.

    Aim a camera at your screen?


    If I used a webcam for the 'scope people might expect me to turn it
    round and use it for me, but I'm happier with audio and sharing screens.

    My office is in my house, and I'm rarely presentable.
    We have a FLIR thermal imager with a horrible non-standard USB cable
    and interface. The way to export images is to photograph them with a
    cell phone camera.
    exactly
    you have demo version not fit for doing any business
    buy FLIR PRO thermal imager to get usb image transfer support
    We have an E45 with the close-up germanium lens. It will image the hot
    spot on an 0603 resistor. It cost $12K.

    I have built thermal imager based on Night Vision system, converting grey scale image into thermal map.
    Project is highly intelligent, based on AI learning algorithms for flashing objects with IR light gradient to get thermal response.

    Spent $200 for Night Vision and one-month for scripting job to get thermal maps.

    There is no other way to get high-resolution thermal maps and it doesn't matter if you pay $1000 or $1M

    At the same time I can get fullHD Night Vision at $300 + real time image processing to get thermal maps for free

    We design electronics (on topic!) and need to know temp rise on really
    tiny parts. The cheap imagers won't focus close enough to scope small
    stuff.

    We got a free sample of a Flir benchtop thing (that's another story)

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/y8gjiyysz8tc3xd/Demo_Imager.JPG?raw=1

    but it's useless to us. They deliberately made the focus
    not-adjustable so that it can't work up close. The support post keeps
    it from working with any reasonably-sized PCB.

    I think Flir bought Extech to kill their upcoming thermal imager
    product line.

    Does Extech make anything, or do they contract all manufacturing out
    in China?

    My guess is that there are Chinese sources of thermal imagers about to
    appear, with or without Extech.

    But germanium optical systems will remain expensive.

    I have a Seek Thermal hand held TIC, it's invaluable. At the time I
    bought it, it was better value than FLIR at IIRC about £400, and the affordable FLIR TICs didn't go hot enough. I do like the FLIR visible
    image overlay though.
