OTG Helper - Android APP (USB compatibility check)
« on: August 31, 2014, 09:07:03 PM »
By reading the users manual of the new GDS-200/300 scopemeter, there is a reference regarding OTG that is  specific Android kernel support for USB connections of equipment which are detected as external storage device by a phone or tablet, and every file stored in them becomes accessible to view or send to others.

In my case I wanted to explore the possibility to use my 10" tablet so to view saved screenshots by the GDS-300 scopemeter.
Which is great for waveform comparisons between the captured waveform that is viewed by the tablet and the one that is active, which is viewed in the screen of GDS-300 scopemeter.

Thankfully my tablet looks compatible after installing this OTG Helper APP which performs an diagnostic check which my tablet successfully passed. :)

My joy is double because this Android 2.1 tablet is something that I actually rescued from be discarded by buying a new touchscreen for it, and later on discovered that it does not have blue-tooth so to use it as data-logger.
My second unpleasant surprise were this weak CPU which even internet browsing due WiFi is sluggish and problematic, by these good news, soon this tablet will have a good use as it would become in a way an extension screen for the GDS-300.  ;)

You may download this APP for free due Google store.
