I am looking for a logic analyzer and wanted to get some advice.
Overall would it be better to go with a device that interfaces with a
PC or just a standalone device? There was an ad in Circuit Cellar from
a company called Intronix that sells a 34 channel analyzer for $389! http://www.pctestinstruments.com/index.htm Any advice would be appreciated! -D A #### [email protected] Jan 1, 1970 0 I am looking for a logic analyzer and wanted to get some advice.

I bought that Intronix device and I'm happy with it. I also bought the
extra probe assembly and a bag of those micro clips, they are very
handy.
PC is the only way to go IMHO. After all, most "stand alone" units are
running Windows these days....

The difference being that the standalone device is still
running in 15 years, whereas the PC-addon only runs as
long it fits to a PC and its software.

Have had one of these for about a year and a half now, and think it's great. I'd buy one again. Recommend that you download the host software and run it as a demo to get some idea of the device's capabilities.

I am still running an old Dolch LAM. Slow but enough for most of my
stuff. Grab it by the handle, set it down where needed, flip the power
switch and go. And it don't need no stinkin' PC ;-)

Depends on the speed your target is running at. If it's going relatively
slow this might suit your needs. We use loads of them all over the place
because they're so cheap......

That is why people sought / bought devices that connected via standard
interfaces, serial, parallel, GPIB, USB and Firewire.
