Static acquisition samples the configured channels once, reflecting the present state of the channels. Static acquisition, like static generation, is controlled by software and does not use hardware timing.
Because a function call is required for each data point acquired, static acquisition is generally used only for single-point or low-speed applications. Static acquisition can be helpful for system and cable debugging, DC-level semiconductor testing, and many other applications.
Static acquisition is also called immediate, unstrobed, or nonlatched acquisition.
