The union is what we are using for our fast DAQ data from FPGA.
Our engineers designed the structure that format, and it has similar structure with AD image.
We do not use a union containing a structure, which might complicate the system.

In this case, you mean what I got is what I should expect. Right?

    What you are showing looks like a discriminating/tagged union.
    This is quite different to having a union containing a structure,
    which is maybe what you expect?
