Examples

niRFSG Configure Start Trigger Digital Edge

Configures the Start Trigger for digital edge triggering.

Note  For the PXIe-5654/5654 with PXIe-5696, the Start Trigger is valid only with a timer-based list when RF list mode is enabled.

Supported Devices: PXIe-5644/5645/5646, PXIe-5654/5654 with PXIe-5696, PXI-5670/5671, PXIe-5672/5673/5673E, PXIe-5820/5840
