Scopy is a multi-functional software toolset with strong capabilities for signal analysis.



Once you downloaded the installer, run it and follow all the required steps. After completion, system reboot is required.


Run Scopy from the Desktop Shortcut / Start Menu / Installation Folder (Scopy.exe).

Using the Application


The Home view is divided into three sections:

  • Devices: List of devices (USB or remote) that Scopy can connect to. USB devices are detected automatically at startup. The Add button can be used to add remote devices to the list.
  • Instruments Menu: List with instruments provided by the application.
  • Information Window: Welcome page with tool information and links to useful online resources.

Instruments Menu

Scopy interacts with only one hardware device at a time. Once a device is selected to be used with the application, a list of instruments that are available for that device will be enabled. Each instrument can be opened from the left menu. The icon on the right of the instrument name specifies that the instrument is enabled and provides a shortcut that allows an instrument to be turned on or off.

The instruments menu can be minimized by clicking on the Scopy button near the top-left window. Scopy Home View
