gage_cs220.device is a driver for the CompuScope 220 ISA Digital
Oscilloscope board from Gage Scientific. With this driver and a
GoldenGate 2 or GG2+ ISA/ZorroII bus bridge, you can use the CS220
on an Amiga.
The driver allows access to nearly all features of the hardware,
including dual channel sampling at up to 20MHz, and single channel up
A demo disk is available. The demo disk contains gage_null.device, a
demonstration and test version of the driver that doesn't require a
CS220 or even an ISA/Zorro bus bridge. It simulates the operation of
the gage_cs220.device and provides the same interface, and allows
development of software for gage_cs220.device when hardware is not
available. Since gage_cs220.device is a binddrivers-style device, and
since gage_null.device is based on much of the same code, the
gage_null.device is also a binddrivers style device and must be bound
to an autoconfiguring board on your system. However, gage_null.device
doesn't actually access the board it is bound to, so it is safe to
bind the driver to any unbound board on your system. A ram expansion
board is a good candidate.
The disk also contains the full autodocs and headers necessary to
program for the gage_cs220.device, and to allow you to get a feel for
the capabilities of the real driver. Or, with the gage_null.device,
you can develop complete applications for the CS220 without having the
hardware or driver available.
See the file README.DataWeb on the demo disk for information on the
DataWeb, a complete scientific data acquisition and processing
environment that can be used with the gage_cs220.device.
Amiga 2000, 3000, or 4000 with OS 2.0 or later. See the section
titled 'OTHER' for a special note about the A3000.

The price is $99.95 plus $5 S/H. Texas residents add sales tax. We
also accept purchase orders from large organizations!
The demonstration disk is free on Aminet, or can be ordered for $5
plus shipping/handling. If you have previously ordered a demo disk,
$5 will be deducted from the price.

The CS220 board will not work in an A3000 as-is. It draws too much
power on start-up and prevents the 3000's power supply from coming up.
It works fine on 2000s, 3000Ts, and 4000s, but not the standard 3000.
Gage can provide a modified board that works around the problem, or
you can modify your own. Please contact us for details.
The driver has only been tested with the 32K board model, but should
work with the other small (<512K) models. It may not work without
additional work on the large models. I am unable to test this without
access to a large-memory card.
If you need a driver for other Gage Scientific hardware or require
features not supported in the current CS220 driver (for example,
non-automatic software triggering, or large-memory cards), please
contact us. We may be able to help.
