Set up your echOpen open lab
You can follow this section's guidelines to set up your own hardware lab ! Here you will find a list of the equipment you will need to build the probe and help us with the hardware.
To build the probe, we have provided some tips for a good start. The following list (LabTool) gives components and consumables deemed essential and required to quickly start a laboratory or a research center to design the echOpen probe.

Figure 3: Testing appliance
The oscilloscope and multimeter can be used as electronic diagnostic tools to get quick access to the signals in different parts of the circuit in the board (test leads are required to get measurements on the breadboard). The signal generator allows simulating different inputs to part of the circuit.
