Loading a huge .arb file by breaking it to pieces

Question asked by YotamShapira on Sep 12, 2017

Hi,

I have huge .arb files (about 10-20MB) which I want to load to the device using Matlab by calling MMEM:DOWN:FName and MMEM:DOWNDATA commands (works well for small files). 

The device itself has enough space on it however I can't hold the .arb file on a Matlab variable since it is too large and Matlab runs our of memory when I create it (some limitation on the size of char arrays). 

 

An obvious solution is to upload the file in fragments with a few consecutive fwrite commands but the device doesn't seem to allow this. Does anyone know a way around this issue?

 

Thanks! 

Yotam
