The AVR Oscilloscope clock from Dutchtronix was covered here @ MAKE before, but I finally got around to building one – it’s great. Makes an awesome clock out of an oscilloscope. Not bad for $35… Above are some pictures from the build! It’s not actually supposed to work on a digital scope, so this was an experiment – and it worked!

This AVR Oscilloscope clock is available as a kit, using all through-hole components. The kit included ALL components necessary to assemble the board shown below, including a preprogrammed ATmega168 microcontroller. It does not include an oscilloscope. It also includes connectors for the Power and RS-232 headers on the board. The user can use these connectors to build the power and serial communication cables.

    I notice you are using a Tek 2014B even tho the AVR clock FAQ says it won’t work. Can you tell us what your scope configuration was? How did you set it up?
