memory depth

Normaly specified in MS (megasamples) per channel. This value indicates how many measurement values of the analog-digital converters (ADC) can be stored per channel. The total acquisition time for a given signal is depending on the sample rate and the memory depth per channel. This is especially important for non repetitive signals.

Synonyms: acquisition memory
