I am using PicoScope 4224 with LabView10 to measure and record short pulses. The record length of each pulse is 10 µs and the Samplerate is 10 MSamples/s.
I am using rapid block mode and tried different numbers of captures before sending them to the PC.
I managed to get a record without skipped pulses up to a pulse-repetitionrate of approx. 30Hz. Above this frequency some pulses are skipped. I would like to record these pulses up to a repetition rate of 400Hz.
In my opionion they are skipped, because LabView is still waiting for the scope-data of the pulse before. I also figured out that there is almost no time difference between the transfer of 1 Sample an 1000 Samples, so I guess my problem is the minimum response time of the scope.
How long does it take to measure and transfer these pulses (100 Samples each) to a pc with PS 4224?
Would a more expensive USB-Scope of yours have a shorter response time?
Thanks for your help.
