Data streaming from 5204

Post by Tomnilll » Thu Apr 22, 2010 4:25 pm

I have a 5204 that will be connected to an embedded computer...and I need to stream as much data as I can to the disc on the computer. Has anyone done this, and if so what is involved in terms of additional software tasks?

I also need to set up a ramped signal for output on a 3204 using a similar computer. The ramp need to be from 30kHz to 10 MHz by small steps.

Please help!

Tom

the model numbers are switched...should be output with 5204 and record with 3204...

Hi this depends really on how fast you want to stream.

A 3204 can stream continuously at 1kS/s, whilst with the 5000 if you write your own software you can stream continuously at up to 13.3 MS/s (this depends on your PC's performance and overheads).

How quick are you looking to sample and for how long?

Kind regards
