    I need an oscilloscope but they cost to much.
    I have read that you can make one with a ADC.
    I have a AD974ANZ and want to make it into a oscilloscope.

    I am not sure how this would be made or any thing.
    I need some help. is there a website or something that has done this before?

    You can always get the hardware to digitize an input. The hard part is writing the software to take that input and display it as if it were an oscilloscope.

    There's free software to make a sound card oscope also search the site as there is another one I found that is cheap and better specs than most.
