Digital tables contain data that you can plot on a digital waveform graph. You can build a digital table manually, convert analog data to digital data, or acquire a digital signal to create a digital table. Complete the following steps to build or modify a table of digital data.
|Value||Digital Data State||Description|
|0||0 (Drive Low)||Force logic low. Drive to the low voltage level (VOL).|
|1||1 (Drive High)||Force logic high. Drive to the high voltage level (VOH).|
|2||Z (Force Off)||Force logic high impedance. Turn the driver off.|
|3||L (Compare Low)||Compare logic low (edge). Compare for a voltage level lower than the low voltage threshold.|
|4||H (Compare High)||Compare logic high (edge). Compare for a voltage level higher than the high voltage threshold.|
|5||X (Compare Unknown)||Compare logic unknown. Do not compare.|
|6||T (Compare Off)||Compare logic high impedance (edge). Compare for a voltage level between the low voltage threshold (VOL) and the high voltage threshold (VOH).|
|7||V (Compare Valid)||Compare logic valid level (edge). Compare for a voltage level either lower than the low voltage threshold (VOL) or higher than the high voltage threshold (VOH).|
|Note If you wire an array constant to the data input, you can use the Digital Ring constant to simplify entering digital data in the array. The Digital Ring constant allows you to select from the 8 digital data states.
To use the Digital Ring constant, right-click a value in the array and select Replace from the shortcut menu to display a temporary version of the Functions palette. Navigate to the Digital Waveform palette and select the Digital Ring constant. LabVIEW converts any numeric values you previously entered to their corresponding digital data states.
