Sample Interval Calculation

Post by williambaker »


I have noticed that at certain sampling rate settings, the rate, interval and number of samples displayed in Properties becomes irregular. For example, see the attachments - a requested rate of 10kS at 10ms/div timescale does not give 1us resolution or 10k samples, but 1.012 us and 9877 samples. Changing the requested samples to 500kS however gives the correct numbers (also in attachments)

Is there a way to fix this - have I got my settings wrong or am I misunderstanding what is going on? I feel as though this has not always been an issue. Please advise
