The Xprotolab is the first mixed signal oscilloscope with an arbitrary waveform generator in a DIP module. It measures only 1 x 1.6 inches, and can be mounted directly on a breadboard. The Xprotolab can also be used as a development board for the AVR XMEGA microcontroller.


  • Mixed Signal Oscilloscope: Simultaneous sampling of analog and digital signals.
  • Advanced Trigger: Normal / Single / Auto, with rising or falling edge and adjustable trigger level.
  • Meter Mode: Average, Peak to peak and Frequency readout.
  • XY Mode:
    - Plot Lissajous patterns
    - See the phase difference between two waveforms
    - V/I Curve tracer with an external resistor
  • Spectrum Analyzer with different windowing options and selectable vertical log.
  • Horizontal and Vertical Cursors with automatic waveform measurements.
  • Arbitrary Waveform Generator with Sweep on all parameters.
  • Display options: Persistence, Different grid options, and more.

General Specifications:

  • Graphic OLED display 0.96", 128x64 pixels
  • Module size: 1.615" x 1.01"
  • PDI interface.
  • 4 tactile switches
  • USB connectivity: Windows, Linux, MAC, Android

Logic Analyzer specifications:

I have both XProtoLab's, with screen and without. The one with the screen works very well when you can see it. You need a very good magnifier. The other you have to use the interface. I am running windows. The interface has so many problems I am just not sure where to begin. They have not updated it since I bought mine. Everything on the site is last YEAR.
The screen crashes but the board is still working. It is so unstable that its unusable. I would like to see some updates and if you have new firmware for the boards I would to get it.

This product is worth every cent! The display is beautiful and the features are rich. It is perfect for audio applications. You will have a lot of fun with this little device. Guaranteed.

However, there are two problems I'd like to point out:

Problem 1:
It is IMPOSSIBLE to install the drivers on Windows 8. Microsoft doesn't allow you to install this driver unless you have a valid certificate (which one has to buy for sixty dollars). This is not necessarily a problem of the device itself, but rather a problem created by Microsoft.

Problem 2:
When one uses the waveform generator, the amplitude changes when generating signals over 10kHz. This problem should be fixable to an extent by code though... :/

Unbelievably useful UI. Every time I use it, I'm amazed at how intuitive a 4 button interface can be... to a full-function DSO, and AWG, and everything else. Look at any DSO/analog scope... all those controls. Look at the Gabotronics PC interface... the 4 button UI is actually more intuitive and easier to use! Amazing, especially when you consider how many 4-button wristwatches out there make setting the time nearly impossible. I've actually had to use a manual to figure out a stupid wristwatch. This little scope... 5 minutes of messing around and I was functional... no manual, nor any previous DSO experience (just old-school analog). It just makes perfect sense; it just does everything I want.

Best on site oscope to trouble shoot my installed arduino projects. I can carry this into my backyard or to a friends to work on projects. Most can't believe I am serious when I bring it out then marvel when I use it. One friend said it was cost effective to attach to a project and leave it. I love it so much I bought its parent the mini. Great job.

Great little device! Got my XProtoLab a week ago and the functionality really impressed me. The display-layout and menu structure is very well designed to give a convenient user-experience. Although there are only four buttons, I even did not need the user-manual to explore the core functions. For analyzing sub-MHz signals this device surely has the best price-performance-ratio you'll ever find!
