|NI-SCOPE (English | Japanese)|
Peer-to-peer (P2P) streaming technology uses PCI Express to enable direct, point-to-point transfers between multiple instruments without sending data through the host processor or memory. This enables devices in a system to share information without burdening other system resources.
The NI 5160/5162 supports peer-to-peer streaming using the NI-P2P API. For more information about using NI-P2P to stream data between devices, refer to the Peer-to-Peer Streaming Help. The NI-SCOPE Function Reference Help and the NI-SCOPE LabVIEW Reference Help provide more information on configuring the digitizer's endpoint resources to send data to another peer.
