Bench hardware


After my recent purchase of an oscilloscope, I realised that I was also in the market for a bench power supply and a signal generator.

  • The power supply should produce 0-15V @ 2A, but 30 V @ 5A would be good.
  • Signal generator 5 MHZ, 5Vp-p (40 MHz, 10Vp-p), can make one using Arduino, but a bench boxed model would be nice
  • Frequency Counter – I have one in my DMM, so not absolutely necessary, but a nice to have.

The Kit

HP 3310A manual, missed it, Function generator, great piece of kit, £32. Low frequency response. See also Sending out the right signals.
