    I've reworked the whole code of an old project of mine from August 2009.

    The results are shown in the video which happens to be my very first in life. (Why Youtube provides that awful blurred image, is a mistery to me :()

    Critics of any kind are kindly requested and will be appreciated.



    Today I feel happy.

    Neat stuff!

    Most of my Tek 7000 series analog scopes have on-screen readouts (Tek 7K series are a mainframe with 3-4 slots for plug-ins). I read about someone who made an analog clock using the readout subsystem.

    Cool video.

    Am I correct in assuming you are using the scope in X-Y and using an R2R paired with an octal latch for the Ch1, then the same for Ch2?

    This is a clever project.

    Yes, in X-Y mode plus the Z axis where, instead of enhancing the beam I cut it prior the beam moves to the next dot. I expect to post more complete info shortly.

    Thanks DL.

    I think I had the chance to see one of those Teks, just once. They impressed me a lot.

    Eventually you could get a " 'chas gracias" in return. :)

    Very nice!:D --- Additional kudos on your refreshing choice of (highly intelligible) 'rasterized' (as opposed to 'vector') graphics -and- on coding in assembler! :):):)

    Best regards

    They should be quite affordable now. Literally for pennies on the dollar. After I bought my first one, I realized it had some custom parts and got several more for parts. Most of them work, so I can set them up for certain things and leave them (one with a 70 MHz DSO, one with a logic analyzer, ...).

    Verrrry nice. I especially like your self-documenting code.;)

    Thus it is that I should have disclaimed: "pun not necessarily not intended";););)

    Nah, it's just that I learned that word (phrase? term?) a couple of days ago and was looking for a chance to use it... who would've thought that I'd use it here? :D

    Well, tired of writing pure nonsense for testing

    I decided to use it for real info.

    I learnt things along this journey.

    Unless you show exactly where, the closest I am is my second name: Tomás. :p :D
