Owon DS7102V teardown and review

Some time ago I bought myself a Owon DS7102V 100MHz oscilloscope. It is similar to the Rigol entry level scope DS1102E, but thinner and with bigger screen. Oh, this beautiful screen, totally worth the money. But as time passed first flaw of this eBay originated scope surfaced - the fan broke. It didn't stop, it just started to make screeching noise whenever I turned it on. When taking aparart for the first time I also managed to break soft power button.. Oh well. I ordered new 12 V 60 x 60 x 10 mm fan and KDC-A11 power button to fix it.

Internal layout is really impressive. One third of the scope is cheap power supply, middle section is battery compartment, and all the scope electronics is one small PCB. Whole scope worth of electronics small enough to put in pocket.

Interesting chips I found from scope:

Old KDC-A11 next to new one. Slight problem with pin sizes.

Small bodge inductor, probably against ripple on the line.
