Multi-Instrument Digital Assistant – PIC16F84A – “It contains four instruments in one unit: logic probe, single channel logic state analyzer, frequency counter and serial code receiver.
The Engineer’s Assistant – Erik Grindheim
“This compact instrument is intended to be a digital laboratory tool for hardware and, in some cases, software debugging. It contains four instruments in one unit: logic probe, single channel logic state analyzer, frequency counter and serial code receiver”
Serial code receiver The serial code receiver receives 42 bytes and displays them in both HEX and ASCII. The baud rate is selectale in 8 steps from 1200 to 115200.
Logic state analyzer This is a one-channel logic state analyzer. It fetches 300 single bit samples in a selectable rate from 25ms to 1µS (40 Hz to 1 MHz in 16 steps).
Frequency counter The frequency counter displays the frequency with up to 8 digits on the LCD. The refresh rate is 500ms.
Small Electronic Testing Tools
Logic probe The low and high logic levels are displayed by LEDs which are OFF if the probe tip is floating.
