Hi every body,

I have in this moment the chance to get a digital oscilloscope.
50 MHz type.
Would this be sufficient for measuring on AVR home brewing items ?
i am starting with this matter, so no experience is given, and the 
chance to get this oscilloscope is until till monday (emergency sale due 
to avoid filing of administration;-)

thanks for your ideas

50 MHz analog bandwith would be sufficient, but a more important 
characteristic is the sample rate. Do you have any info on that?

yes I do, technical data is 400 mega samples.
I know that others do have a bigger rate.

true, more whould be better. maybe an skilled user could indicate the 
optimal sample rate ?

Ja. höherre Sample Rate wäre sicherlich besser. Vielleicht kann einer 
der erfahrenen Boardmember sich hierzu äußern ?

thanks - danke

What about the price? Which scope are we talking about?

From my point of few, 400 MSamples/s is enough. For my home projects I'm 
still using 20 MSamples/s, but I can run my oscilloscope in analoge 

Anyway, typical usage for measuring higher frequencies might be 
controlling operation of the crystal oscillator, that's it.
