USB Oscilloscopes, Analyzers and Signal Generators

Digilent's selection of USB oscilloscopes and test and measurement devices (Discovery family) may seem small, but each device contains an entire benchtop worth of instruments. Each product is designed to be the first stop in debugging and test targeted at Analog and/or Digital signals. Lovingly referred to as the swiss army knife of electronics by our customers, the Discovery family of products combines portability, usability, and flexibility with affordability. All test and measurement devices use our free software application, WaveForms, that has been finely tuned for 10+ years and continues to be improved with new features and instruments. 

Our USB test tools are easy to use and offer advanced features such as oscilloscope signal generators, allowing you to quickly test and troubleshoot electronic circuits. With high resolution and fast sampling rates, our Discovery line deliver accurate results every time.

WaveForms is a free software application, and along with USB oscilloscopes, is compatible with:

  • Mac
  • Windows
  • Linux
  • Some ARM devices, like Raspberry Pi

So whether you're looking for a USB signal generator for Mac, a USB PC Oscilloscope for Windows, or a USB oscilloscope for Linux, you've come to the right place! Our computer oscilloscopes for USB are the perfect solution for engineers and hobbyists looking for reliable and accurate USB test equipment.

Each PC USB oscilloscope and benchtop device has a wide range of accessories designed to expand the functionality or provide the necessary I/O for specific applications. We continue to actively research and design additional accessories, consistently adding value to your investment in the Discovery ecosystem. 

Combining the features and feel of traditional benchtop equipment and the processing power and user interface perks that you love about your PC, WaveForms provides an incredibly feature rich and highly intuitive interface for our devices. If more customization is desired, WaveForms also includes a script editor to write custom or timed tests in application, and a software development kit (SDK) to write entirely custom applications for your device. Can you tell we're proud?
