Docklight (Scripting) offers time stamps with milliseconds resolution. It uses a high-resolution time provider that delivers true milliseconds time measurements with much higher precision than standard Windows SYSTEMTIME measurements. But you still need to consider that the actual monitoring accuracy depends very much on your PC’s hardware and software characteristics (serial hardware used, operating system, overall PC performance). Our “Docklight Tap” Application Note and the Docklight User Manual contain detailed information about limitations in PC-based data monitoring, and how to obtain best accuracy with Docklight.
