For $476, ($308 for the reduced price AD2 bundle and $168 for 3 months of Contextual Electronics) you will have a compact, portable and flexible tool to probe your electronics and 3 months of access to an online curriculum that teaches you how to design, build and debug custom hardware.
Learning platform + tool = solution
The Analog Discovery 2 (AD2) is now the official multi-tool of Contextual Electronics. And for the first time outside of a University setting, members of this program will have access to the educational pricing on an Analog Discovery 2 bundle of hardware.
The AD2 is a flexible piece of test equipment that includes oscilloscopes, power supplies, function generators, a spectrum analyzer, logic probes and much more! It uses cross-platform software called Waveforms 2015, which allows the user to interact with the test equipment through a graphical interface OR via a programmatic interface.
What’s in it for you?
This bundle includes 3 months of a Contextual Electronics Journeyman subscription ($168) + access to buy the Analog Discovery 2 Contextual Electronics Bundle at the student discount rate ($308). The CE bundle includes a breakout board for the waveform generator and 2 logic probes. For $476, you will have a compact, portable and flexible tool to probe your electronics and 3 months of access to an online curriculum that teaches you how to design, build and debug custom hardware. The AD2 will enable you to peer “inside” your design to diagnose issues and get a hardware product working optimally.
So why are new members required to buy a 3 month subscription? We want to make sure our students are committed to sticking with the course before they get access to the educational discount on the hardware. It’s a bit of an awkward way to charge for that first month, but we did it with the ‘Upfront fee, with a “3 month trial”‘ to preserve your account info. After the initial period, you will still have access to the course at the normal rate of $59/month. This will charge automatically but can be cancelled at any time after the promotional 3 month period.
