This is a followup question to a previous question I had asked about acquiring a large amount of samples. I am using ADC-216 for sampling a voltage signal at 41666 samples/second for a some amount of time.I assume total number of samples to be atleast 5 million. I want to store the data in a single file. When I used PicoLog for acquiring data,my file was restricted to about 32700 samples,no matter what sampling rate I used. Therefore I am thinking of writing my own C program. Is it possible to acquire millions of sample at high sampling using my own program? More specifically,can I control the buffer size? How can I control buffer read/write operations? Do you have any sample code?
I have enough disk space (50GB),fast processor(P4,2GHz) and 1GB RAM.
Really appreciate your help,
