Help: PS3206 no_of_samples vs time_base

Post by feng_lin78 » Tue Jan 31, 2006 5:30 pm

I modified the Excel macro for PS3206:


Block mode;
Timebase = 10 (5.12us)
Oversamples = 1


How many samples can I work with? i.e. maximum no_of_samples

For PicoLog, it seems I can record over 1 million samples, but excel crashed everytime I set no_of_sample to a few hundreds.

I need a sample rate over 200 KHz and recording time bigger than 5 seconds.

Any suggestions? :!:

Hello Feng,

The 3206 has a 1 megasample memory buffer. MS Excel will normally stop at around 65000 rows. MS Access may offer more rows as it is built for handling bigger numbers.

PicoScope is capable of handling data from the 3206. You may find that taking your data from PicoScope is better.

Best regards,
Michael
