I am using AiBurst under Windows XP to sample an approximate sinusoidal waveform.


The logged data is showing discontinuities suggesting that the sampling freezes for a while


The command is


    aiStatus = AIBurst( &ljId, 0, NULL, 0, 1, 4, nChannels, nGains, &scanRate, 0, 0, 0, NUMBER_OF_SAMPLES, 2, rawValues, digStates, &overVoltage, 0 );
In the attached file, column 1 is a record count, column 2 is the output from an incremental encoder and the other columns are the raw logged values

Did not get an attachment.  Please try again.


Do you see the same issue with LJscope.exe?

I have not tried LjScope - I have reattached the file - the png shows an example of the discontinuity

Each call to AIBurst gets the specified number of scans at the specified intervals, but there will be gaps between each call to AIBurst. 




Since you are doing 2 channels, the max number of scans will be 2048.  In your data the discontinuity shows up every 1024 scans, so I suspect you are passing numScans=1024.


For continuous data, you need to use stream mode:






Note that our newer devices (U3/U6/T7 recommended for new applications at this time) are all much better at streaming.
