TV-based Oscilloscope – The LPC2138 Microcontroller-based Device

Many home hobbyists like to try something interesting and different. If you’re one of them that love to take on a challenge, then it’s the perfect time to get into this TV-based Oscilloscope projet!

Hold on a minute! You’re thinking, “TV-based Oscilloscope? I’ve done the similar project before and I don’t want to waste my time on this stuff again!” Come on, guys. This TV-based Oscilloscope is slightly different from the others, as it based on a LPC2138 microcontroller application. It can be used to convert a standard television into a high-functioning oscilloscope.

This means, with only a single chip solution, it able to turn your TV into a digital storage oscilloscope with a sampling rate 160 Ksps. This feature allows you to monitor five different voltages on the five analog inputs simultaneously!

The main purpose of the project is to implement a high-resolution video generator inside the ARM microcontroller, LPC2318. In this case, the video generator is able to operate in the background mode, even though with a very low CPU loading!

It supports two different standards, American NTSC and Europe PAL systems. The best thing about this project is no additional video-controller and video-RAM is needed. Therefore, it definitely helps us to save a lot of money! [Source]

  1. where the hell are the details

  2. kindly update the link coz that doesn’t work and i want to build that if you don’t mind.

  3. Different source link has been added to the end of post. Thanks for notice.

  4. Thank you so much …! This means a lot
