Oscilloscopes for Busy People – List of hardware used in the course

This page contains a list of the hardware tools and components that I used in this course.

Please take some time to go through the list and decide what you need in order to complete the course.

The most important item in the list is the oscilloscope. The list below contains models that I have used in the course (the Loto OSCA02 and Rigol DS2072A) and are my regular scopes. I have also listed alternatives that I have not used, but trust their capabilities and quality.

For your convenience, I have also listed the tools that are permanently on my bench and use almost daily.

The items in these lists are provided in an effort to make it easier for our students to find the parts and tools they need. While we take care to find reliable sellers, we cannot be responsible for problems in their supply chain or fulfilment. Sellers may run out of stock at any time, or shipments may be lost in transit. For issues like these, or for warranty claims, please contact the seller directly.

This course is for people that are familiar with basic electronics, and can create simple circuits and programs with an Arduino and ESP32. For this reason, I assume that you already own an Arduino Uno, an ESP32, things like breadboard, capacitors, resistors, potentiometers, and LEDs. You can find detailed list of these components in the hardware pages for my Arduino and ESP32 courses.

Who’s selling these items?

All these items are sold and fulfilled by Amazon or stores that sell their product through Amazon. Tech Explorations will earn a commission if you purchase by clicking on these links (around 3% to 5%). This does not increase the price you pay. 

Returns and refunds are governed by Amazon relevant policies. I shop regularly on Amazon and never had any problems with either returns or refunds.

If you do not live in the US, UK or Germany, or the Amazon stores that we provide links to below do not deliver to your location, consider using a freight forwarding service like Shipito. You can ship your shopping to them, and they will forward to you, anywhere in the world. This is useful in case, for at least some of the items in your shopping list, Amazon will not ship to addresses outside the US. 

To complete this course you will also need these resources:

  1. Arduino IDE | Download
  2. MS Code and PlatformIO | Download
  3. Computer (Windows, Mac OS, Linux)
  4. Access to the Internet
