After much discussion I’m going to modify the initial vote for the oscilloscope.
This vote is for $1000 to purchase equipment for the electronics area.
A Rigol DS1054Z for $399
A Saleae logic 8 analyzer for $220
A function generator for $50-$300
So the max would be $1000, could be less if I can find a good signal generator on the cheap.
If anyone would like to provide guidance/opinions on the choices please add to the original oscilloscope thread.
We will use this more for voting.
