I may need to save the data collected by 5133(100MHz, 8bit)

 

The data was processed and extracted by Single data type, and a lot space for saving.

 

Can I re convert back it to integer, by fit the value into 256 grids divided with the whole input range.

 

Also, the input range for divide is 0 to V or -V to V.

 

Any suggestion, thanks.

I'm not quite sure I understand.

Your equipment collects with 8 bit resolution but you stored it as a Single (32 bits). You want to convert the data back down to something using less bits?

 

Why not just use the 'To Byte Integer' function (numeric palette, conversion)?

Rather than scaling it to SGL in the DAQ driver, just acquire it directly as U8 integers.  No conversion required.

In the processing part, I need to process the data by single.

 

After processing. some data need to be saved, so I want to save as integer.

 

Not sure the 255 divider for input range is from 0 to V or -V to V, thanks.
