A drill press with a depth gauge will come in handy here. Cap showing drilled holes One end of the case is sealed shut with another one-inch end cap, which is glued into place. The cap with the holes is not, so that you can change the batteries. Also, I did not include an on-off switch in the design for the sake of simplicity, and to make the case as moisture-proof as I could. PCB assembly inserted in cap [ 26 ] Chapter 2 The preceding image shows the completed PCB assembly installed in the end cap.
PCB assembly inserted in cap [ 26 ] Chapter 2 The preceding image shows the completed PCB assembly installed in the end cap. These are prototype PCBs, so the ones you download from Packt might look slightly different. Basically, what I did is to remove some of the solder mask from the top ground plane and solder the negative terminal of the battery case to the top copper layer of the board. The white wire is the positive connection. This is where you would put the on-off switch if you wanted to.
Get the highest sample rate and highest SNR your budget will allow. The output section We will start with a description of the output section of the project. I know that oscilloscopes don't have outputs but sound cards do, and a number of software vendors have used this to their advantage. We will cover the details of that subject later. In the meantime, let's look at the output circuit. 48 KHz is only a theoretical maximum. The actual practical maximum frequency you are able to measure might be much lower.
