Brings Lots of test & measurement gear, including logic analyzers, oscilloscopes, multimeters, ...
Seats needed 15
Extra seats 0
Assembly specification 3. We need something special or in between those options: Please specify in the field planning notes.
Planning notes If possible we'd like to be in a corner, the better to keep an eye on our gear. We also plan to do a lot of hacking on code, so a quiet spot would be great. If possible not the hackcenter.

We will have at least 5 people permanently at the table, but also needs quite a bit extra room for all the equipment, and typically have lots of visitors drop by. The SDR project at our assembly will also have visitors.

The sigrok project aims at creating a portable, cross-platform, Free/Libre/Open-Source signal analysis software suite that supports various device types, such as logic analyzers, MSOs, oscilloscopes, multimeters, LCR meters, sound level meters, thermometers, anemometers, light meters, dataloggers, function generators, power supplies, GPIB interface, and more.

It is licensed under the terms of the GNU GPL. Design goals and features include:

  • Broad hardware support. Supports many different logic analyzers, oscilloscopes, multimeters, data loggers etc. from various vendors.
  • Cross-platform. Works on Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, and FreeBSD (and on x86, ARM, Sparc, PowerPC, ...).
  • Scriptable protocol decoding. Extendable with stackable protocol decoders written in Python 3.
  • File format support. Supports various input/output file formats (binary, ASCII, hex, CSV, gnuplot, VCD, ...).
  • Reusable code. Consists of the libsigrok and libsigrokdecode shared libraries which can be used by various frontends/GUIs.


We'll be hacking on the sigrok code (architecture, core hardware library, protocol decoder library API, GUIs, and Python protocol decoders plus their API).

We'll have a ton of supported (and yet to be reverse engineered) test & measurement gear with us, including logic analyzers, MSOs, oscilloscopes, multimeters, sound level meters, dataloggers, function generators, and lots more.

Bring your own device if you own models we don't yet support or know about. We'll be happy to have a look!

Chat with us, give us your suggestions which features you'd like to see, which devices you want to be supported, which protocol decoders you'd like to have, or even help us write some drivers/decoders!
