Timebase calculation

Post by jcoeandersen » Mon Jul 02, 2018 7:21 am


I am making an application using the PS6000 SDK.
My question is regarding the timebase calculation in section 2.7 of the programmers guide.
I states that the timebase value has a range of 0 to 2E32 - 1. In the table describing the formula for calculating the the sample interval from the timebase value, it says that that timebase 2E32-1 ~ 6.87s. But when I use the given formula: "(timebase - 4)/156250000" I do not get a value of anywhere near 6.87s for timebase = 2E32-1.

Can you please help my figure out what's wrong with the calculation?

Thank you.

The maximum possible sampling rate will depend on the number of enabled channels, it will 4 times higher than 6.87s with a single channel enabled.
