I think I've heard good things about that scope, but I'd prefer to avoid a USB based scope.

I was attracted to it due to its price and it was enough for the arduino stuff I am doing. However I can't recommand these chinese handhelds. Got one of the DIY, tiny display and to switch settings with three buttons is a pain.

Unless you find someone here that has experience using this device I would be hesitant to take opinions from others as to whether this device might fit your needs.

For instance I own a Rigol MSO2102A, which more than meets my needs.  Some would say it is overkill, while some might think it isn't enough.  So It really comes down to what works for you!

So unless someone can advise you yea or nay because they have tried it, I'd say if it fits your budget then go ahead and give it a shot, then let us know your thoughts.  Who knows, your experience may benefit many other members of our forum.

I've got FNIRSI-5012H 2.4-inch Screen Digital Oscilloscope 500MS/s Sampling Rate 100MHz Analog Bandwidth Support Waveform Storage. It does exactly what they say it does, which is more than good enough for what I do.

It was worth it to me, but it really depends on what you want it for.

I say that someone built a logic analyzer out of a Pico to capture the data up to 125Mhz and display it on a Raspberry Pi 4.  It was being used for looking at the 800K signal for Neopixel controls being driven by another Pico using it's PIO feature.

I'll see if he's posts a how to.  This was a Discord conference call I was on about CircuitPython deep dive on the PIO feature of the Pico

If your code won't compile, have another glass of bourbon. Eventual the problem will be solved.

Here's the link that I found:
