Short Name: Sample Clock Mode
Property of niFgen
Specifies the Sample Clock mode for the signal generator.
For signal generators that support it, this property allows switching the Sample Clock to a high-resolution clocking mode. When in divide-down sampling mode, the sample rate can be set only to certain frequencies, based on dividing down the Sample Clock. However, in high-resolution mode, the sample rate may be set to any value.
|Note You cannot change this property while the device is generating a waveform. If you want to change the device configuration, call the niFgen Abort Generation VI or wait for the generation to complete.|
Divide down sampling—Sample rate is generated by dividing the source frequency.
High resolution sampling—Sample rate is generated by a high resolution clock source.
Automatic Selection—NI-FGEN selects between the divide-down and high-resolution modes.
The following table lists the characteristics of this property.
