Use the NI-HSDIO properties to get and set the individual parameters of your NI digital waveform generator/analyzer.

Property Description
Active Channels

Specifies part of the instrument session to which subsequent properties apply. The Active Channels property is most often used to specify a channel or channels. You also can use the Active Channels property prior to specifying a Script trigger or a Marker event. Details

Dynamic Channels

Configures channels for dynamic operation. The group of dynamic channels is reconfigured each time this property is set. For example, setting this property to 0-10 and then setting it to 5-8 results in only channels 5-8 being assigned to dynamic. Channels 0-4 and 9-10 are unconfigured by the second configuration.

Writing an empty string to this property configures ALL channels for dynamic. Writing the value None unconfigures all channels for dynamic operation. The session must be committed before the channel is configured or unconfigured (refer to the niHSDIO Commit VI for more information about committing a session). Details

Static Channels

Configures channels for static operation. The group of static channels is reconfigured each time this property is set. For example, setting this property to 0-10 and then setting it to 5-8 results in only channels 5-8 being assigned to static. Channels 0-4 and 9-10 are unconfigured by the second configuration. Writing an empty string to this property configures ALL channels for static. Writing the value None unconfigures all channels for static. The channel is not configured or unconfigured until you call the niHSDIO Read Static (U32) VI, the niHSDIO Write Static (U32) VI, the niHSDIO Read Static PFI (U32) VI, or the niHSDIO Write Static PFI (U32) VI. Details

Voltage Levels:Data High

Specifies the high data voltage level for the session.

This property applies to static and dynamic data operations.

Note   On NI 6555/6556 devices only, if the Attribute Committal Strategy property is configured to Immediately upon set (Voltage), setting this property while the session is in the Committed or Running state causes the new value to take effect by the time the property returns.
Note   On NI 6555/6556 devices only, you can select the following PFI channels and clocks for the active channel input of the property node using these strings: PFI1 , PFI2 , STROBE , and DDC_CLKOUT . These strings are not case sensitive and can be grouped with the standard input strings separated by commas. The following are examples of valid string syntax: 0, 4, 6, PFI1, 7 or 0-12, STROBE, DDC_CLKOUT.
Voltage Levels:Data Low

Specifies the low data voltage level for the session.

This property applies to static and dynamic data operations.

Note   On NI 6555/6556 devices only, if the Attribute Committal Strategy property is configured to Immediately upon set (Voltage), setting this property while the session is in the Committed or Running state causes the new value to take effect by the time the property returns.
Note   On NI 6555/6556 devices only, you can select the following PFI channels and clocks for the active channel input of the property node using these strings: PFI1, PFI2, STROBE, and DDC_CLKOUT. These strings are not case sensitive and can be grouped with the standard input strings separated by commas.

Refer to the Tristate Mode property to drive the termination voltage for a generation session or to the Termination Mode property to drive the termination voltage for an acquisition session. Refer to the NI PXIe-6555/6556 Specifications for more information about accuracy.

Note   Only NI 6555/6556 devices support this property.
Note   When the Attribute Committal Strategy property is configured to Immediately upon set (Voltage), setting this property while the session is in the Committed or Running state causes the new value to take effect by the time the property returns.

You can select the following PFI channels and clocks for the active channel input of the property node using these strings: PFI1, PFI2, STROBE , and DDC_CLKOUT . These strings are not case sensitive and can be grouped with the standard input strings separated by commas. The following are examples of valid string syntax: 0, 4, 6, PFI1, 7 or 0-12, STROBE, DDC_CLKOUT.

Valid values range from –2 V to 7 V, depending on the range selected with the Data Voltage Range property.

The default value is 0.

The units are in volts. Details

Voltage Levels:Data Voltage Range

Specifies the voltage range used for all voltages on the selected channel. If you are using both acquisition and generation sessions in your application, when you set a voltage range in a session, NI-HSDIO reserves that voltage range for that particular channel after the session is committed. The other session must then set the same voltage range for that particular channel to avoid a reservation conflict error after the initial session is committed.

After you commit both sessions, you cannot change the value of this property until you either reboot the hardware or call the niHSDIO Reset Device VI.

This property is valid for generation and acquisition sessions.

Note  Only NI 6555/6556 devices support this property.
Note   When the Attribute Committal Strategy property is configured to Immediately upon set (Voltage), setting this property while the session is in the Committed or Running state causes the new value to take effect by the time the property returns.

If the Reference trigger is enabled (not disabled), then the fetch occurs from the first pretrigger sample. If the Reference trigger is disabled, then the fetch occurs from the first sample. Details

Dynamic Acquisition:Fetch:Fetch Offset

Specifies the offset in samples to start fetching acquired waveform data. The offset is applied relative to the Fetch Relative To position. Offset can be a positive or negative value.

If the specified offset would cause the fetch to occur before the start of the waveform or exceed the end of the waveform, NI-HSDIO returns a data overwrite error.

This property is valid only for acquisition sessions. Details

Dynamic Acquisition:Fetch:Fetch Backlog

Queries how many acquired data points remain in onboard memory.

This property is valid only for acquisition sessions.

Dynamic Acquisition:Termination Mode

Specifies the action taken by NI-HSDIO when a channel is tristated. A tristate condition can occur during initial states , idle states , per cycle tristate , and static tristate. Selecting High impedance sets the channel to a high-impedance state when tristated. Selecting Drive termination voltage sets the channel to drive a termination voltage (V TT ).

You must set this property to the same value on a channel in both acquisition and generation sessions, or NI-HSDIO returns an error. If you are using both acquisition and generation sessions in your application, when you select a value for this property in a session, NI-HSDIO automatically sets the same value in the other session. However, NI-HSDIO allows you to change the value only in the original session in which you configured it. For example, if you select High impedance in your acquisition session, your generation session is configured automatically to the same value. If you want to change the value to Drive termination voltage , you can do so only in the acquisition session until you close the original session.

Note   If you set the Termination Mode and Tristate Mode properties to different values on the same channel, NI-HSDIO returns an error.

If the Tristate Mode or Termination Mode properties are set to Drive termination voltage , then you must set this property to Active Load Disabled or NI-HSDIO returns an error.

You must set this property to the same value on a channel in both acquisition and generation sessions, or NI-HSDIO returns an error. If you are using both acquisition and generation sessions in your application, when you select a value for this property in a session, NI-HSDIO automatically sets the same value in the other session. However, NI-HSDIO allows you to change the value only in the original session in which you configured it. For example, if you select Active Load Disabled in your acquisition session, your generation session is configured automatically to the same value. If you want to change the value to Active Load Enabled When Tristate , you can do so only in the acquisition session until you close the original session.

You can select the following PFI channels and clocks for the active channel input of the property node using these strings: PFI1 , PFI2 , STROBE , and DDC_CLKOUT .

Dynamic Generation:Initial State

Specifies a dynamic generation channel state after the session is initiated and before the first waveform sample is generated. The channel changes to the Initial state after the data operation has been initiated. When the Start trigger occurs, the Initial state is replaced by the first sample in the waveform.

Channels explicitly disabled with the niHSDIO Tristate VI remain disabled, but the channel data value changes internally. Re-enabling a channel with the niHSDIO Tristate VI while the device is waiting for a Start trigger causes the channel to go to its Initial state.

This property is valid only for generation sessions. Details

Dynamic Generation:Idle State

Specifies a dynamic generation channel state while the device is idle. Details

Dynamic Generation:Drive Type

Specifies what the data channels generate when set to logic 1. Selecting Open collector to generate a Z is useful for wired-OR logic buses, such as I2C or SMBus.

Note   NI 654 x devices support open collector generation only for static generation. NI-HSDIO returns an error if you try to configure the channels on these devices for open collector dynamic generation.

This property is only valid for generation sessions. Details

Dynamic Generation:Tristate Mode

Specifies the action taken by NI-HSDIO when a channel is tristated. A tristate condition can occur during initial states , idle states , per cycle tristate , and static tristate. Selecting High impedance sets the channel to a high-impedance state when tristated. To drive a termination voltage on a channel in a generation session, select Drive termination voltage .

You must set this property to the same value on a channel in both acquisition and generation sessions, or NI-HSDIO returns an error. If you are using both acquisition and generation sessions in your application, when you select a value for this property in a session, NI-HSDIO automatically sets the same value in the other session. However, NI-HSDIO allows you to change the value only in the original session in which you configured it. For example, if you select High impedance in your acquisition session, your generation session is configured automatically to the same value. If you want to change the value to Drive termination voltage, you can do so only in the acquisition session until you close the original session.

Note   If you set the Termination Mode and Tristate Mode properties to different values on the same channel, NI-HSDIO returns an error.

You can select the following PFI channels and clocks for the active channel input of the property node using these strings: PFI1 , PFI2 , STROBE , and DDC_CLKOUT . These strings are not case sensitive and can be grouped with the standard input strings separated by commas. The following are examples of valid string syntax: 0, 4, 6, PFI1, 7 or 0-12, STROBE, DDC_CLKOUT.

If this property is not set to a valid waveform name and more than one waveform is in onboard memory, you receive an error upon calling the niHSDIO Initiate VI. If only one waveform is in onboard memory and this property is set to an empty string, then that waveform is generated upon calling the niHSDIO Initiate VI.

This property is ignored when the Generation Mode property is set to Scripted , since the Script to Generate property defines the sequence of waveforms to generate.

This property is valid only for generation sessions. Details

Dynamic Generation:Script To Generate

Specifies which script in onboard memory is generated upon calling the niHSDIO Initiate VI when the Generation Mode property is set to Scripted .

Note   This property is supported only for NI 655 x devices.
Advanced:Maximum Bandwidth

Specifies the maximum data transfer rate in bytes per second on the PCI Express bus. Details

Advanced:Preferred Packet Size

Specifies the preferred size of the data field in the PCI Express packet. In general, the larger the packet size, the more efficiently the device uses the bus.

Advanced:Maximum In-Flight Read Requests

Specifies the number of memory reads on the PCI Express bus at the same time. In general, the larger this number, the more efficiently the NI device uses the bus because the system has more information about the device needs. A larger number of in-flight read requests means that more read requests are then expected by the system, so it can allocate bandwidth appropriately. Decrease the number of in-flight read requests when your application is using other hardware that is not as efficient as the NI device. The amount of reduction depends on the behavior of the other hardware. Details

Note  Only NI 6555/6556 devices support this property.
Advanced:Supported Data States

Configures the supported digital data states in a waveform. Use this property to enable tristate data generation or real-time hardware compare data. To use the hardware comparison feature, you must have an acquisition and a generation session running concurrently. When you select hardware compare data you must set this property to the same value in both sessions.

Note  For NI 6547/6548 devices, when you set this property to an extended data mode it reduces the number of channels available for dynamic generation to 24. The top eight channels (24-31) are available for dynamic acquisition or static generation, and the lower twenty-four channels (0-23) are available for dynamic generation of supported data states.

When you set this property to L, H, X (resp only) , all data is configured for comparison. When you set this property to 0, 1, Z, L, H, X (stim/resp) , the software is configured for either driving generation data or comparing data.

Use the Waveform Data Type (WDT) instance of the niHSDIO Write Named Waveform VI to write tristate or expected data to the device. The device drives any values of 0, 1, or Z in the waveform, and values of H, L, or X are treated as expected data values.

You must set this property before you write data or allocate a waveform to the device. Details

Note   This attribute is supported for NI 6555/6556 devices only.
Advanced:Hardware Compare:Filter Repeated Sample Errors

Specifies whether the device stores and counts errors when the same error appears in consecutive samples. If this property is set to TRUE, the device counts only distinct errors. The niHSDIO HWC Fetch Sample Errors (U32) VI returns the number of clock cycles for which each error was present. Details

Advanced:Hardware Compare:Sample Error Buffer Overflowed

Returns whether the FIFO used to store sample errors has overflowed. If the FIFO overflows, the hardware stops storing error information for further errors, but it continues to compare data and count the sample errors encountered.

You can remove sample errors from the FIFO using the niHSDIO HWC Fetch Sample Errors (U32) VI. Removing sample errors creates room for additional sample errors to be stored in the FIFO. Details

Obsolete:Device Serial Number

Returns the serial number of the device. Details
