Goal

Use the bt878 TV capture card as a DSO (as in sampling, not in storage).

Rationale

This is the fastest ADC we can easily connect to the PC to obtain constant capture (w/o triggering and small sample buffers). It may be a good fit for some Software Defined Radio experiments (on the AM band or together with a mixer).

Progress

26th November 2007

Not much progress yet. The card was connected and a BNC connector was brought out of the computer case. The nest step is to measure some DC and AC characteristics.
