The TiePieSCOPE HS801 is no longer manufactured and sold.
For an overview of all oscilloscopes, visit the Oscilloscopes page.


Software will remain available through this web site, but it will no longer be updated.

The TiePieSCOPE HS801 is an instrument with parallel port connection. The TiePieSCOPE HS801 will only work on a computer with a real parallel port. Connection via a third party USB to parallel adapter will not work.
