Oscium has developed a two-channel oscilloscope aimed at the iPad and iPhone. The iMSO-204 increases the sample rate over its predecessor from 12Ms/s to 50Ms/s/ch even when running both channels with no interleaving, stated the firm.

There's no increase in the 5MHz bandwidth, but the 50Ms/s sample rate provides 10x oversampling at full bandwidth. The iMSO-204 also has increased data memory: 1000 points/ch compared to 240 points on the one-channel model. Each digital input can also store 1000 samples on all scales.

At $399.97, $100 more than Oscium's one-channel model, the iMSO-204 is a little pricey compared to other two-channel low-priced oscilloscopes, but it's the only one that you can use with an iOS device. The others require a laptop or have a very small screen. It also lets iPad screen makes waveforms easy to see. Even on an iPhone 4, the waveforms are clean.

When designing the iMSO-204, Oscium's engineers had to decide on the connector. Wisely, they chose to keep the 30-pin connector and not switch the Apple's Lightning connector. Doing so means that users need not replace their iOS devices just to use the iMSO-204. If you have an Apple device with the Lightning connector, you'll need the adapter, which can be ordered from Oscium.
