Can the buffer memory be increased via the computer?

Postby Nathan » Sat Jun 24, 2006 1:37 am


The 3224 scope has a 512k buffer. Can that be increased by means of the computer's capabilities?

Michael recommended that I purchase the 3224 for thermal conductivity testing. Is there an advantage to the ADC-212/100 over the 3224 because of it's 16 bit capability, or is the 3224 still the better choice?

Hello Nathan,

This choice will depend upon your absolute specifications.

What are you ultimately looking for, speed or resolution?

The scope buffer will help you on longer duration, high speed sample runs.

The memory cannot be increased by the PC.
