3205MSO: I need help with maximum Sample rate

Post by phdussud » Wed Feb 26, 2014 10:23 pm

Hello!
I just acquired a 3205MSO and have some trouble getting the sampling rates indicated on the spec sheet:
I can get 500MS/S with only one analog channel (A or B)
I can get 500MS/S with only one Digital port (Hi or Low)
Any other combination indicated on the spec sheet only gets me 250MS/S
I am using PicoScope 6.8.8.16
Can you please tell me if you truly can get 500MS/S with the following combinations:
Ch A or B + 1 Digital port
1 or 2 Digital ports
Thank you very much!
Patrick

You are not mistaken. This was working in an earlier release of the software but appears to have been broken in the latest release. Our development team have been notified of the issue.

Hi Patrick,

It is possible to achieve a sampling rate of 500MS/s with the combinations in your post above using the latest PicoScope 6.10 and 6.11 Beta releases available from our Downloads page.
