Abstract:Palmscope is a type of electronic test instrument that allows observation of constantly varying signal voltages, usually as a twodimensional graph of one or more electrical potential differences using the vertical or 'Y' axis, plotted as a function of time, (horizontal or 'x' axis). Although an oscilloscope displays voltage on its vertical axis, any other quantity that can be converted to a voltage can be displayed as well. In most instances, Palmscope show events that repeat with either no change or change slowly.

Palmscope are commonly used to observe the exact wave shape of an electrical signal. In addition to the amplitude of the signal, an oscilloscope can show distortion, the time between two events (such as pulse width, period, or rise time) and relative timing of two related signals. Palmscope are used in the sciences, medicine, engineering, and telecommunications industry. General-purpose instruments are used for maintenance of electronic equipment and laboratory work. Specialpurpose Palmscope may be used for such purposes as analyzing an

automotive ignition system, or to display the waveform of the heartbeat as an electrocardiogram.


In this project we have got two channel that will decode the input data and with the help of ADC and the signal is processed and given to the micro controller. The micro controller will read the data and the data is represented on GLCD. Here we use 128x64 LCD and the data is shown in a graphical form. There is an select switch used to select the channel. The data is also stored in the SSD card available. The data at the same time will be sending to the computer with the help of serial interface. The input voltage will be scaled to 0 5v scale and will be represented on the GLCD.

This unit is simple and handy to use. This unit can be run with the help of battery supply. Hence we can use this as a mobile scope which can be used to read different signals from different electronic circuit.

This device will be powered by Renesass 16bit R8C/25 family micro-controller. Renesas is the worlds largest micro controller manufacturer. Its chips are found in BMWs iDrive and very recently in Toyota Prius hybrid car..
