Oscium’s newest product, iMSO-204, transforms the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch into an ultra-portable, two channel oscilloscope.
The Oscium iMSO-204 is the second generation of handheld engineering tools from Oscium. When iMSO-104 was originally released, it won several awards (including being recognized as one of the 100 most technologically significant products of the year). With iMSO-204, Oscium has improved both functionality and performance, making the iPad or iPhone a very compelling oscilloscope solution.
Improvements to the original scope include adding a second analog channel and increasing the sample rate by more than a factor of four to 50 MSPS. The horizontal scaling has also been expanded (200 ns/div – 10s/div) and the sample depth is now 1000 points.
Oscium is the first company to bring a capacitive touch screen experience to oscilloscopes. Martin Rowe of EDN Network says, “[once] you try using your finger to zoom in on a waveform, you’ll never want to go back to knobs.” Oscium has paved the way for a truly intuitive experience and continues to make improvements to the platform. iMSO2 software improvements include the following enhancements:
- Waveforms can be paused and zoomed into
- While zooming the horizontal and vertical scales, immediate feedback is now provided
- Waveforms are sharper with more than four times the number of display points

Both iMSO-104 and the new iMSO-204 work with free downloadable apps in the Apple App Store. Be sure to download the iMSO2 app with the iMSO-204 hardware and, as always, the iMSO app with the iMSO-104.
Since Apple continues to sell and support 30-pin iPads and iPhones, Oscuim has chosen to serve and support all our customers (both 30-pin and Lightning™), rather than require customers to immediately upgrade their Apple hardware. The only way to ensure full compatibility for all customers is to deliver a native 30-pin accessory coupled with a Lightning adapter.
iMSO2 software is free in the Apple App Store. The iMSO2 app requires iOS version 5.0 or higher. Compatible products include: iPhone 5C*, iPhone 5S*, iPhone 5*, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad Mini*, iPad Air*, iPad 4*, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad, iPod touch [3rd (32GB only), 4th and 5th* generation]. iMSO-204 hardware can be purchased for $399.97 from NorthTree Associates directly at www.shop.northtreeassociates.com
*Devices require an official Lightning adapter to unlock compatibility.
Oscium delivers personal instrumentation that leverages the easy-to-use interface of the iPad, iPhone and iPod. As an app-cessory maker, Oscium designs both an accessory and an app for each tool. Using touch screen-based technology, Oscium is making cutting-edge test equipment more intuitive and easy to use. Oscium has created a new category in test equipment called iOS Test with the following first-to-market accessory tools: LogiScope (logic analyzer), iMSO-104 (mixed signal oscilloscope), WiPry-Combo (combination spectrum analyzer & dynamic power meter), WiPry-Spectrum (spectrum analyzer).
