I am about to have a 5444B in my lab.
I'd use it to capture 5us periodic (200Hz) pulse signal.
The sampling speed is set to 10MSPS. Pre-trigger window is 100us. Post-trigger window is 900us.
So each trigger needs 10KB storage space. 200 triggers per second means 2MB. 5444B has 512MB. So continous recording of 256 seconds is expected.
However, my application needs to keep capturing longer than that.
In oder to squeeze more space before 5444B gets full filled, can I retrieve data while rapid block mode is running?
P.S. I only cares about the average of each capture, so downsamling average mode is chosen. Hence the burden of transferring data to PC would not be high.
