I get this question alot when I talk to guys at work.
"Hey that displayed wave from your ADC212-100 looks great on your laptop, but I wonder how many sample points are on the curve? If your sample rate is too slow, you might miss a narrow spike or alias the signal."
So, I know that it is capable of 100 Mega samples per sec, but this must vary some how in accordance to the on-board memory. I would like a math formula that, based on the settings in PicoScope, would tell me how many horizontal samples are taken in a given domain of time.
I think it is simply: (100x10e6)/duration of time in full window. But, at what point does the memory become a limiting factor?
Also, please check my concept of vertical resolution. If my voltage scale is 10v Pk-PK, then the smallest detectable change in the signal would be:
10v/(2e12)= .00244......volts or 2.441milliVolts.
