sampling rate of picoscope 3424

Post by KU Stijn » Mon Sep 17, 2007 2:53 pm

the specifications of picoscope 3424 are: 20 MS/s (1 channel)

I'm using 1 channel for my signal and 1 channel for my trigger. When I analyse my data I notice that there is a datapoint every 5 ns (setting 500 ns/div). Are all these points real datapoints, because one would expect a datapoint every 50 ns: 1 divided by 20 MS/s equals 50 x e-9 s?

Or thus the programme interpolates this extra datapoints?

I'm using the latest software r5_16_2.

By the way: I'm happy to see that the microvolt resolution problem when using save as txt is not there anymore in the new software!

Hi could you send me your waveform file or even a settings file?
