I´m getting a lower data rate than expected in my own code using the GetValues call on a pico 4227.
status = ps4000GetValues(unit.handle, 0, (unsigned long*) &sampleCount, 0, RATIO_MODE_NONE, 0, &overflow);
This call is taking approx 3.8 secs to return 12500000 samples (from both channels so 400 mbits of data). overflow = 0.
I am getting approx 100 mbps on an otherwise quiet PC (USB 2.0 theoretical is up to 480 mbps but you quote in your data sheet a typical rate of 30 MB/s or 240 mbps) I'm trying to increase the sample frequency and this is the main delay for me now.
Any ideas on how I could speed things up? Or could I be setting up something wrong?
My driver version is ps4000.dll v 188.8.131.52 date 21/10/2010. Is this the latest?
