We want to use the Picoscope 5242b for our new product. Manly thats because it is one of the few scopes that supports 16 bit resolution.
The problem is that the sampling rate can only be set to a few predefined values.
Currently I am using timebase 6 which corresponds to 48 ns sampling intervall => 20.8333 MS/s
However my application currently requires a sampling rate of about 14,857 MS/s (this might change as development goes on).
At the moment I resample the signal in software using an overlap add filter which is very cpu and ram intensive.
Is there a way to set the sample rate of the picoscope to a specific value? Maybe using a custom firmware?
One of your competitors offers a scope with an optional external sampling clock. Is such an option available for the picoscope?
