Subject: USB-scopes, anyone?

We are interested in evaluating USB-scopes (rack-mounted, no front panel)
for continuous signal measurements, as these are a lot cheaper than regular
scopes (with display and front panel controls). However, it is unclear
whether remote access to such scopes necessarily means using proprietary
(vendor supplied) software under Windows. Ideally, we would like to have an
asyn driver for USB (or some more specific protocol over USB), and then use
stream device support on top of that. Failing that, we would have to explore
other possibilities, like running an IOC on a Windows machine with a special
device support that talks with some (proprietary) vendor library.

Has anyone already done something like that? If yes, which
manufacturers/devices are you using? Has anyone experience with programming
USB? Could the protocol be reverse engineered?

Cheers
Ben
