The equipment is also out of the price range for most college students. Students would be looking at spending around $3788 for the kind of lab equipment used at DeVry. By creating an inexpensive and portable oscilloscope, function generator, and power supply that fits in one box about the size of a brief case we've addressed the primary issues associated with this equipment. This project has many applications and many future expansions and functions that can be added on. By having a variable floating DC power supply, 7Hz-6 KHz function generator, and oscilloscope with leads connecting to any circuit built, the comprehensive hands-on learning tool would be ideal for most DeVry students. Project Operation: There are three main parts to this project: the power supply, function generator, and oscilloscope. There are a few hardware and software requirements for these components. The power supply will require two wall wart power supplies connected to two potentiometers to control the variable voltage and display it on the LCD. Then it will connect to the student's circuits. The function generator can be completed in two ways. One method is to assemble it through hardware. This would have little involvement with the 68HC12, but would allow a more hands on approach. The other technique is to generate it through software. This would allow it to be more portable, but creates more use of the computer instead of circuits. The function
