Comparison of PC-based logic analyzers

Here’s a comparison chart I’ve been working on that compares various PC-based logic analyzers. I made this mostly for myself because I’ve been wanting to buy a logic analyzer, but most of them are very expensive for a hobbyist’s budget. PC-based ones are a good compromise…they can be cheaper than standalone units since they don’t need all the processing and display hardware. I’m currently leaning towards the $120 Zeroplus unit, it seems to provide the best bang/buck. There is the $50 open source one, but I think I’d wait a bit for more reviews of it, to see how good it really works.

I’ll write a review when I do decide on one. Also I know someone designing his own Logic Analyzer, if/when he finishes, I’ll give a link to that too.

  2. This oscilloscope can do up to 12 channels of logic + 2 analog channels at 100Msps. It’s cheap, too, at $350. It also has protocol decoding and 2Mbyte memory buffers http://www.quantasylum.com/content/Products/QA100.aspx

  4. Great listing, but it would be a huge help to know which ones also have integrated pattern generators as well as compatibiltiy with 5v TTL logic.

  5. Wow, that’s what I was looking for, what a data! existing here at this webpage, thanks admin of this web site.

  6. The ScanaPLUS is the only 9 channel logic analyzer out there, just enough channels to look at a parallel bus (+ 1 sync channel). Goes up to 100Mhz and streams unlimited samples to host computer. Many decoders available, + you can write your own decoder in minutes.. :) Price tag: ~$200.
