The Sound Card Scope is a circuit that allows any maker to turn their microphone port on their computer or laptop into a low frequency oscilloscope that is capable of measuring frequencies between 50Hz and 18 kHz (this depends on the sound card being used). While microphone ports are primarily used to read analogue voltages from a microphone they can be used to plot the “volume level” that they are currently detecting on a graph and this is essentially what an oscilloscope does!
To use the Sound Card Scope you will need (none are included with the kit)
- BNC Probe
- 3.5mm male / male cable
- 9V Battery
- Windows 7 to 10
- Soundcard Oscilloscope Software (Free to download)
- Recommended Extra—Analog Explorer V1.0
