Arduino: Build Your Own Oscilloscope

Learn how to build your own oscilloscope, a very useful tool that will let you see what's happening in your circuit real-time

In this course you’ll learn how to build a simple oscilloscope using an Arduino.

An oscilloscope is a very useful tool that will let you “see the voltage in real-time”, so that you can:

  • find problems in a circuit that doesn’t work
  • learn electronics by seeing what is going on
  • improve a circuit design

…and much more!

What You’ll Need

  • Arduino
  • USB cable for the Arduino
  • Two jumper wires


This course assumes you have a basic understanding of how to use and program an Arduino.

I love electronics, and I've been building things with electronics since I was a kid. It such a great feeling when you build something and it works! And I want more people to have that.

Since I was a kid trying to learn electronics, I always felt that electronics was taught in a very complicated way. So since 2012 I've been working on new ways to teach electronics so that beginners can quickly get up to speed and start building cool things.
