Q: what are the main differences between Electronic Explorer and Analog Discovery?

Main differences
  • AD is USB powered while EE has its own external source, thus EE requires more power
  • AD has 2 differential scope channels, while EE has 4 single ended channels
  • EE has 2 programmable power supplies (one fixed), while AD has only 2 fixed (one positive and one negative) power supplies
  • AD has 16 digital channels while EE has 32 digital channels
