Previously I reviewed Digilent's Digital Discovery Digilent Digital Discovery with High Speed Adapter - Review and found it to be a very capable
though specialized device, still needed a bit of fine tuning. With the Analog Discovery 2, a unit that has a long history of development, it really shows
what a mature product can do. I found little that couldn't be done with this device that any technician would need in a very portable device.
The Waveforms software is fully utilized to it's extent and I could find very little to improve on. As stated before, the bnc adapter is really a must have to
get the most out of this unit.
