Question about Streaming and Block transfer modes

First let me explain how I think it works. My understanding is streaming works like this: sample number: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 ... Every single sample is transferred over the USB port, as it is generated by the oscilloscope. And that block transfer mode works like this: Block 1 samples: 1 2 3 4 5 ...

How do I make posts appear faster?

Every post I make gets moderated before appearing. How do I get my posts to appear immediately?

Re: Do any of your scopes support bit-depth over 8bits?

Ben, Reading your post I remembered seeing something a while ago. (ok a long while ago 8) ) https://www.picotech.com/support/topic11185.html And the result. http://codeandlife.com/2012/07/31/realtime-composite-video-decoding-with-picoscope/ And in color http://codeandlife.com/2012/09/12/color-compo...

Re: Do any of your scopes support bit-depth over 8bits?

For some reason, when I made the previous post, the quoted post remained, but my own content disappeared. So I'm posting again, this time with JUST the content, which was supposed to have been in the previous post. Thanks for the info. However, that still doesn't take into account my intended use. I...

Re: Do any of your scopes support bit-depth over 8bits?

Hi Ben321, There is no extra filter in the signal path. In the industry of Data Acquisition, the manufacturers goals are to provide a well specified, high quality instrument at a cost-effective price. When designing with ADC's you do indeed need to avoid aliasing and other phenomena that will degra...

Re: Do any of your scopes support bit-depth over 8bits?

Take a look at 4000 series which are 12 bit, or the 16 bit PicoScope 4262 which is designed for audio applications. Additionally there are the flexible resolution 5000 series which can switch between 8/12/14/15/16 bits depending upon number of active channels and speed of sampling required. Thanks ...

Do any of your scopes support bit-depth over 8bits?

I noticed the specs on your scopes are all 8bits, and 12bits only with enhancement enabled. Do you actually sell any scopes that have bitdepth greater than 8 bits? I'm thinking 14 to 16 bits would be good actually. I know that even cheap soundcards have 16bit ADCs (analog to digital converters) in t...
