I have just purchased a PicoScope4262 and I’m particularly interested in spectra. I have the following questions.
1) PicoScope 6 uses an internal processor of PicoScope, or the PC resources? Therefore, it can be faster than a softwere on the PC working online on the acquired data (or offline on the stored data)?
2) PicoScope 6 can show an average spectrum, in Log scale. Does it perform an average of power spectra on different acquisitions, and then the Log of the average, or the average of the Log of power spectra?
3) It seems that the spectral average performed by PicoScope 6 is limited by the 16M buffer. Is it possible to overcome this limit (I’m interested on the average over a large number of spectra, to increase the accuracy)?
4) As an alternative to Question 3, I could acquire several spectra (I need some hundreds, to get a 1 per cent accuracy) and then average them offline. Is it possible to do that (i.e., acquiring a long series of spectra without using the file acquiring procedure for each one)?
