Russ' Scope X-Y Display

Russ connected an MCP4822 dual 12-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC) to the fine Tektronix 2213A oscilloscope. A program (sketch) on the Arduino microcontroller drives the DAC and generates the image by steering the scope's CRT beam along the lines in the drawing (vector-scan). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vector_monitor

 

Russ has updated the software with some animation: www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0dRNZrtVjg
