Confused about buffer data type in ps3000aSetDataBuffer

Postby calneel » Tue Nov 10, 2015 10:45 pm

I am a bit confused about the buffer data type in the API

PICO_STATUS ps3000aSetDataBuffer(
int16_t handle,
PS3000A_CHANNEL channel,
int16_t *buffer
int32_t bufferLth
uint32_t segmentIndex
PS3000A_RATIO_MODE mode
)

According to the manual, the data resolution of PS3406B is 8-bit. My interpretation is that PS3406B is recording each sample into a 8-bit data container. I am wondering why we are using a 16-bit container for the data that has only 8-bit resolution.

thanks
