World’s Smallest Oscilloscope Minis Has Achieved Its Crowdfunding Goal!


World’s smallest oscilloscope Minis has achieved its crowdfunding goal on Arıkovanı.

Oscilloscopes were big, hard to move and you need to wire them to electricity. Until Compocket, a Turkish startup, developed the world’s smallest oscilloscope named Minis.

Oscilloscopes which are frequently used by the people who are interested in electronics, look just like microwaves or old radios. These devices, which take so much space in laboratories weigh around 3 kilograms and cannot be carried easily. The display screens and buttons on these highly expensive devices make it very complex and difficult to use.

Minis converts these large, expensive and complex devices to pocket sized and mobile based versions using Industry 4.0 technology. Which means that you can now use your phone, tablet or computer by connecting to your Minis as an oscilloscope.

It aims to eliminate the complexity and learning barrier in oscilloscopes. The buttons on the oscilloscopes are transformed into finger movements according to their functions and a new interface is designed for that.

With Minis’s user-friendly application’s interface, you can observe your measurements at your fingertips, you can work simplier as you wish.

The developers has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Arıkovanı and now has achieved their target. The campaign has still 20 days to go but the project has already raised over 100,000 TL.

Here you can visit its crowdfunding page and pre-order.
