An event is a signal generated by the NI device at a device state. Typically, events are configured to indicate when a specific hardware condition has been met. Refer to Features Supported to determine what events your signal generator supports.
Events can have one of three output behaviors.
Events can return their status in two ways.
The following table describes the event output behaviors and statuses supported by NI signal generators.
|Event Name||Description||Output Behavior||Status|
|Ready for Start||Ready For Start event indicates that the signal generator is configured and ready to receive a Start trigger.||Level||Live|
|Started||Started event indicates when the signal generator has received a Start trigger and is generating a waveform.||Level, Pulse||Latched|
|Marker||A Marker is an event that the device generates in relation to a waveform that is generated. The event is configured to occur at the time that a specific location or sample n if the waveform generates on the analog output connector. If the waveform loops multiple times in a segment, the marker generates each time the waveform loops.||Pulse, Toggle||Latched, Live|
|Data Marker||A Data Marker is an event that the signal generator generates in relation to the data bits of a waveform that is generated. Up to four bits can be configured to export to any valid destination on the signal generator.||Level||N/A|
|Done||The Done event indicates that the generation of the previous waveform is complete.||Level, Pulse||Latched|
