Home Product Articles The Xprotolab


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. The Xprotolab uses an ATXMEGA32A4U microcontroller, it uses the internal ADC with up to 2MS/s and the internal DAC for the arbitrary waveform generator of 1MS/s.

  • World's smallest, fully featured oscilloscope, just 1" x 1.6"
  • ATXMEGA32A4U microcontroller with 32K Flash, 4K SRAM, 1K EEPROM
  • Inputs: 2 Analog Channels, 8 Digital Channels
  • Sampling rate: 2MSPS
  • Arbitrary Waveform Generator, 1MSPS, using the XMEGA's internal DAC
  • 4 Tactile Switches
  • USB Connector for power
  • PDI interface for programming and debugging
  • Graphic OLED 0.96" 128x64 pixels, wide viewing angle
  • Very low cost
Expand the functionality of your breadboard:
  • Breadboard friendly DIP module.
  • No probes needed.
  • Power your breadboard: get +5V, -5V, +3.3V, with just a USB connection.
  • Keep your attention to the breadboard while measuring.
  • The device can be used as graphic display with high level commands
A scope not just for everyone, but a scope for every project!

I bought one of these, put it on an arduino protoshield, then programmed the arduino to generate a sine wave. Set the awg to sine, plug it into ch1, then plug the arduino sine into ch2. Voila! Lissajous patterns on a chip!
But now I wonder; can this thing run Doom?

Info says power needed is 5v to run unit but picture show several units running with three AA batteries, how does this work??
avatar ganzziani
Yes, the device can work with 4.5V

Got an Xprotolab running 1.02 - had it a long while. I'd like to upgrade it but the only programmer I have is a PicKit2. Will that work?

avatar ganzziani
I don't think the PicKit2 is capable of PDI programming. You could buy a AVRISP mkii to update it, or you could buy a newer Xprotolab. The firmware on the newer Xprotolabs can be upgraded using USB, you only need a USB cable to program (and a computer).
