Tektronix 2230 added to my toy chest

A project log for Light Logic

Using a Led and CdS LDR to form inverting Photonic logic gates. The entire Boolean logic set handled by resistors and diodes! Who'd'a thunk

I had to add this to my very basic work area so I can better understand what is going on with my light gates. This Tektronix 2230 scope is just what the doctor ordered.

I have quickly discovered that my astable clock signal for IO is in need for some improvement. Not very square is it...

A late congrats on the o-scope. Maybe someday you can teach me how to use mine (LOL)...

Thanks :-) With all these bells and whistles it is going to take a little while Lol

Very cool.  It must be the season for old Tek scopes - I just ebayed one earlier this week :-)

Congrats!  May you view many interesting waveforms!

Thanks, and just in time for my retirement so I can start hacking full time, if the wife lets me ;-)
