In the product specification page 165, I see than the continuos mode is 2 to 16kbps. In the page 167 this mode is 2 to 16ksps.

Which unit is correct, kbps or ksps?

If that were 16ksps at 12 bits = 192kbps?

Hi,

I am newbie to Nordic and I am building a program that samples adc value. I just wanna know about the difference between two functions "nrf_drv_adc_buffer_convert"and "nrf_drv_adc_sample_convert".

How is the usage different?

(I'm using SDK11)

Thanks!
