Status supported
Source code atorch
Connectivity serial over Bluetooth, BLE
Measurements voltage, current, power, energy, voltage over USB data lines
Features measures USB devices; color display


It features the following connectors :

  • USB-A male ( USB 2.0 only )
  • USB-A female ( USB 2.0 only)
  • USB-C male
  • USB-C female
  • USB-microB female

A CH573F MCU is responsible for performing all the measurements and managing the user interface.

A small SOIC-8 IC (marking BP0D608-68A2) handles the Bluetooth communication (both RFCOMM and BLE). Might be AC6328B


Example use

 $ sigrok-cli -d atorch:conn=COM5 --continuous
 $ sigrok-cli -d atorch:conn=bt/ac6328/12-34-56-78-9a-bc --show


The device communicates through serial-over-Bluetooth (RFCOMM), appearing under the UC96_SPP name, and BLE, under the UC96_BLE name. The same protocol is used both on the BLE and Bluetooth link.

The manufacturer provides an app named "E_Test" for Android and iOS, but no protocol documentation, although it appears that the protocol has been fully reverse-engineered [1].

The RFCOMM transport uses channel number 2. The BLE transport can be made to work using the following parameters : handle_rx = 0x000C, handle_tx = 0x000F, handle_cccd = 0x000D, value_cccd = 0x0001
