Hi Leonid,

Thank you bring this to our attention,
I have notified development and they will look into it.

At the moment if you increase the number of sample to something like 24576 you will get closer to 10Hz.

Thanks,
Karunen

Hi,

Update this is expected behaviour.

This is limited by the phase resolution of the DDS. In order to achieve the optimum frequency resolution you must use the whole buffer, if you use less the frequency resolution will be worsened proportionally.

Thanks,
