LabTool

LabTool is a versatile and powerful addition to your lab bench!
It is an add-on board to LPC-Link 2 (which is based on the LPC4370 - a 204 MHz Cortex-M4 with an 80 MHz ADC and two extra Cortex-M0 cores). LabTool make use of all features on the LPC4370, creating a powerful development tool.

  • 11 channel logic analyzer (up to 100Msamples per second)
  • 2 channel oscilloscope (up to 80 Msamples per second, 6MHz BW)
  • 11 channel digital signal generator (up to 80 Msamples per second)
  • 2 channel analog signal generator (40kHz BW)

The feature rich Windows software interface supports:

  • One shot and continuous sampling
  • Sorting and moving of signals
  • SPI, I2C, UART signal interpreters
  • Project settings can be saved and restored
  • Collected data can be exported
  • Four cursors available to help interpret captured data
  • Open source software
  • Prepared for running under Linux and MAC

LabTool Case

One of our customers, Christoph Klein, has contributed with a case for LabTool. You can find more information and files on Thingiverse.
