Purpose

Writes an 8-bit, 16-bit, 32-bit, or 64-bit value to the specified memory space and offset.

C Syntax

ViStatus viOut8(ViSession vi, ViUInt16 space, ViBusAddress offset, ViUInt8 val8)

ViStatus viOut16(ViSession vi, ViUInt16 space, ViBusAddress offset, ViUInt16 val16)

ViStatus viOut32(ViSession vi, ViUInt16 space, ViBusAddress offset, ViUInt32 val32)

ViStatus viOut64(ViSession vi, ViUInt16 space, ViBusAddress offset, ViUInt64 val64)

ViStatus viOut8Ex(ViSession vi, ViUInt16 space, ViBusAddress64 offset, ViUInt8 val8)

ViStatus viOut16Ex(ViSession vi, ViUInt16 space, ViBusAddress64 offset, ViUInt16 val16)

ViStatus viOut32Ex(ViSession vi, ViUInt16 space, ViBusAddress64 offset, ViUInt32 val32)

ViStatus viOut64Ex(ViSession vi, ViUInt16 space, ViBusAddress64 offset, ViUInt64 val64)

Visual Basic Syntax

viOut8&(ByVal vi&, ByVal space%, ByVal offset&, ByVal val8 as Byte)

viOut16&(ByVal vi&, ByVal space%, ByVal offset&, ByVal val16%)

viOut32&(ByVal vi&, ByVal space%, ByVal offset&, ByVal val32&)

Resource Classes

PXI INSTR, PXI MEMACC, VXI INSTR, VXI MEMACC

Parameters

Name Direction Description

vi

IN

Unique logical identifier to a session.

space

IN

Specifies the address space. Refer to the table included in the Description section for more information.

offset

IN

Offset (in bytes) of the address or register to which to write. For viOutXX() operations, this is a 32-bit value for 32-bit applications and a 64-bit value for 64-bit applications. For viOutXXEx() operations, this is always a 64-bit value.

Note Note  VISA Out and VISA In functions require the offset to begin at a value evenly divisible by the number of bytes being accessed. For example, VISA Out/In 32 requires an offset evenly divisible by 4 bytes, so valid offset values could be 0x00, 0x04, 0x08, 0x0C, 0x10, 0x14, and so on. Values other than these return an error saying the offset is not properly aligned.

val8, val16, val32, or val64

IN

Data to write to bus (8 bits for viOut8[Ex](), 16 bits for viOut16[Ex](), 32 bits for viOut32[Ex](), and 64 bits for viOut64[Ex]()).

Return Values

Completion Codes

Description

VI_SUCCESS

Operation completed successfully.

Error Codes Description

VI_ERROR_INV_OBJECT

The given session reference is invalid.

VI_ERROR_NSUP_OPER

The given vi does not support this operation.

VI_ERROR_RSRC_LOCKED

Specified operation could not be performed because the resource identified by vi has been locked for this kind of access.

VI_ERROR_BERR

Bus error occurred during transfer.

VI_ERROR_INV_SPACE

Invalid address space specified.

VI_ERROR_INV_OFFSET

Invalid offset specified.

VI_ERROR_NSUP_OFFSET

Specified offset is not accessible from this hardware.

VI_ERROR_NSUP_WIDTH

Specified width is not supported by this hardware.

VI_ERROR_NSUP_ALIGN_OFFSET

The specified offset is not properly aligned for the access width of the operation.

VI_ERROR_INV_SETUP

Unable to start operation because setup is invalid (due to attributes being set to an inconsistent state).

Description

The viOutXX[Ex]() operations use the specified address space to write 8, 16, 32, or 64 bits of data, respectively, from the specified offset. These operations do not require viMapAddress() to be called prior to their invocation.

The following table lists the valid entries for specifying address space.

Value Description

VXI and VME

VI_A16_SPACE (1)
VI_A24_SPACE (2)
VI_A32_SPACE (3)
VI_A64_SPACE (4)

PXI INSTR

VI_PXI_CFG_SPACE (10)
VI_PXI_BAR0_SPACE (11) to VI_PXI_BAR5_SPACE (16)

PXI MEMACC

VI_PXI_ALLOC_SPACE (9)

INSTR Specific

Notice that the offset parameter to these operations for an INSTR Resource is the offset address relative to the device's allocated address base for the corresponding address space that was specified. For example, if space specifies VI_A16_SPACE, then offset specifies the offset from the logical address base address of the specified VXI device. If space specifies VI_A24_SPACE or VI_A32_SPACE, then offset specifies the offset from the base address of the VXI device's memory space allocated by the VXI Resource Manager within VXI A24 or A32 space.

MEMACC Specific

For a MEMACC Resource, the offset parameter specifies an absolute address.
