High resolution data acquisition from Oscilloscope Moku:Pro


I am working with Moku:Pro Oscilloscope using Python API. I want to get data from oscilloscope with the highest resolution possible, because I need to see small structures in a big pattern. How can I do it? This is what I have tried so far:

  1. There is an option frame_length in i.set_timebase(). By default it is equal to 1024 but I can increase it up to 16384. Is it the right way to increase the resolution of the data? Can I increase it even further?

  2. I tried to use method with a promising name i.save_high_res_buffer() but it didn’t work (I used the code from documentation - see below). How to solve this problem? How many points in this buffer? Does it increase the resolution of the data? How can I navigate in the memory of Moku:Pro (how can I know where my file is saved)?

# Connect to your Moku by its ip address using Oscilloscope('192.168.###.###')
# or by its serial number using Oscilloscope(serial=123)
osc = Oscilloscope(ip='', force_connect=True)

    # Get new data
    response = osc.save_high_res_buffer()
    file_name = response["file_name"]
    data = osc.download(target="persist", file_name=file_name, local_path="~/high_res_data.li")
except KeyboardInterrupt:

# Close the connection to the Moku device
# This ensures network resources and released correctly
