How is binary data represented on Tektronix oscilloscopes?

### 答案：

Binary data can be represented by integer or floating-point values. The range of the values depends on the number of bytes specified. When the byte number is one, signed integer data ranges from -128 to 127, and positive integer values range from 0 to 255. When the byte number is two, the values range from -32768 to 32767. When a MATH (or REF that came with a MATH ) is involved, 32-bit floating-point values are used that are four bytes in number.

The defined binary formats specify the order in which the bytes are transferred.

RIBinary specifies signed integer data-point representation with the most significant byte transferred first. SRIbinary is the same as RIBinary except that the byte order is swapped so the least-significant byte is transferred first.

RPBinary is positive integer data-point representation, with the most significant byte transferred first. SFPbinary is the same as RPBinary except that the byte order is swapped so the least-significant byte is transferred first.

FPBinary is single-precision floating-point representation of data whose width is 4. SFPbinary is the same as FPBinary except that the byte order is swapped so the least-significant byte is transferred first.
