Why Digilent Test and Measurement?

Digilent Test and Measurement devices combine the feel and functionality of a professional lab bench with a flexible software user experience that is designed to accelerate discovery and design. With one portable or compact device, engineers are provided with up to 12 instruments typically found on an electronics bench with the advantages of a device that is designed with flexibility and portability in mind.

All Digilent Test and Measurement devices are either USB or WiFi connected for a laptop or PC-friendly user experience with Mac, Windows, and Linux compatibility. Along with quality hardware and software, Digilent Test and Measurement devices come with 24/7 forum support and extensive documentation.

In addition to their own software, Digilent Test and Measurement devices are designed to support a wide variety of industry-standard 3rd party software. All devices come with a Software Development Kit that provides the ability to write custom applications and tests in C++ and Python. Select devices come with MATLAB and LabVIEW support.

Portable, flexible, and high-quality Digilent Test and Measurement devices empower engineers to bring the lab anywhere engineering happens.

The Discovery Family

Discovery devices feature professional level benchtop instruments in portable USB connected devices.

The Analog Discovery 2 and Analog Discovery Studio provide access to 12 test and measurement devices. Able to fit into a backpack, the Analog Discovery 2 and Analog Discovery Studio provide an uninterrupted user experience in the lab, in the field, on a customer visit, or wherever engineering happens. Both Analog Discovery products are mixed signal oscilloscopes, featuring analog and digital tools that can be used for analog circuits, logic design, and more! With an Oscilloscope, Logic Analyzer, Waveform Generator, Pattern Generator, Protocol Analyzer, Spectrum Analyzer, Network Analyzer, and more, productivity can increase without the constraints of traditional lab equipment.

The Digital Discovery is designed to be the digital engineers' companion. Featuring a Logic Analyzer, Pattern Generator, and Protocol Analyzer, the 32 channels on the Digital Discovery can help accelerate the design process by displaying and decoding digital signals of all kinds.


What is WaveForms?

WaveForms is Digilent’s free USB Test and Measurement software application compatible with all our Discovery family devices. WaveForms takes just under 60 seconds to download and install and provides the user interface for 12 instruments. Unlike traditional benchtop equipment, WaveForms enables our Test and Measurement devices to be improved over time, and is regularly updated with new features, customer suggestions, and even new instruments!

An accessible benchtop suite of instruments with easy data and image export and programmability provides a stable and easy-to-use test solution with additional opportunities for analysis and custom tests.

Analog Discovery Studio

Analog Discovery Studio™

The Portable Circuits Laboratory for Every Student.

The Analog Discovery Studio is a fully-functional portable test and measurement device that can turn any cross-functional space into a pop-up electronics laboratory. Equipped with 13 instruments including an Oscilloscope, Logic Analyzer, Spectrum Analyzer, Waveform Generator, and more; the Analog Discovery Studio provides an entire stack of benchtop instruments with a convenient breadboardable interface, perfect for enabling circuit design anywhere!

When lab spaces are not always available or convenient, the Analog Discovery Studio is a great choice as a supplement to traditional laboratories.

An Ecosystem of Adapters

The Analog Discovery 2 has been used by thousands of students in countries all around the world. Since its launch, we’ve developed an ecosystem of adapter boards and accessories inspired (and sometimes designed) by academics. With these accessories, students can add BNC probes, impedance analysis, and even a breadboard to their Analog Discovery.

Digital Discovery

Digital Discovery

A USB Embedded Development Tool for High-speed and Multi-channel Applications.

The Digital Discovery is a combined Logic Analyzer, Protocol Analyzer, and Pattern Generator instrument that was created to be the ultimate embedded development companion. Designed with flexibility in mind, the Digital Discovery has selectable voltage levels, output drive, channel number, and sample rate. One portable device provides access to advanced features to debug, visualize, and simulate digital signals for a wide range of embedded projects. Its digital inputs and outputs can be connected to a circuit using the included MTE cables or breadboard wires.

For designs that require speeds up to 800 MS/s, the High-Speed Adapter and impedance-matched probes can be used to connect the inputs and outputs for more advanced projects. The Digital Discovery is driven by the free WaveForms software and can be configured to any combination of power supplies, logic analyzer, pattern generator, static inputs and outputs, and protocol analyzer.

OpenScope and OpenLogger

Wireless, High-Resolution Measurement Devices.

OpenScope and OpenLogger provide our most flexible Test and Measurement experience. Both feature wireless connectivity, expanding the possible measurement opportunities to moving designs and projects that require electrical isolation, freeing you from the restraints of a tethered connection. The accompanying software, WaveForms Live, is available on a browser or mobile application, giving access to measurement devices on a tablet or phone!


OpenScope™ MZ Instrumentation Module

Open-source PICMZ all-in-one instrumentation designed for on-the-go electronics projects

OpenScope provides an Oscilloscope, Data Logger, Waveform Generator, Power Supplies, and Digital I/O with a Bode Plot and FFT view. Applications requiring viewing signals on a robot, testing a sensor on a mechanical design, or testing a project that requires electrical isolation can take advantage of a truly flexible wireless oscilloscope.
