MDO4000 Series: In spectrogram mode, are the slices time continuous or are there time gaps between slices?

Question:

MDO4000 Series: In spectrogram mode, are the slices time continuous or are there time gaps between slices?

Answer:

Each slice is a new acquisition, thus there will be a time gap between each slice (acquisition).

The MDO4000 Series spectrogram shows what is happening in the spectrum over time and allows you view how the spectrum changed over time by looking “back in time” through the spectrogram. The MDO4000 Series spectrogram is helpful in monitoring slow changing RF events and for identifying low amplitude signals that may be too subtle for the eye to catch in the regular spectrum display.

The time between each spectrogram slice is not specified because it depends upon the instrument settings such as RBW (resolution bandwidth), trigger frequency, horizontal time/division when time domain is correlated to frequency domain, etc.
