Routes signals (triggers, clocks, and events) to a specified output terminal. The NI-RFSG device must be in the Configuration state before you call this VI.

Supported Devices: PXIe-5644/5645/5646, PXI/PXIe-5650/5651/5652, PXIe-5653/5654/5654 with PXIe-5696, PXI-5670/5671, PXIe-5672/5673/5673E, PXIe-5820/5840

instrument handle identifies your instrument session. instrument handle is obtained from either the niRFSG Initialize VI or the niRFSG Initialize With Options VI.

signal specifies the type of signal to route.

Start Trigger Exports a Start Trigger.
Script Trigger Exports a Script Trigger.
Marker Event Exports a Marker Event.
Ref Clock Routes the onboard 10 MHz synchronization clock (PXI chassis only).
Started Event Exports a Started Event.
Done Event Exports a Done Event.
Configuration List Step Trigger Exports a Configuration List Step Trigger.
Configuration Settled Event Exports a Configuration Settled Event.

signal identifier specifies the Script Trigger or Marker Event to configure. This parameter is useful when the signal parameter is set to Script Trigger or Marker Event. Otherwise, set this parameter to None.

scriptTrigger0 Specifies Script Trigger 0.
scriptTrigger1 Specifies Script Trigger 1.
scriptTrigger2 Specifies Script Trigger 2.
scriptTrigger3 Specifies Script Trigger 3.
marker0 Specifies Marker 0.
marker1 Specifies Marker 1.
marker2 Specifies Marker 2.
marker3 Specifies Marker 3.
None Does not export a signal.

output terminal specifies the terminal where the signal will be exported. You can choose not to export any signal.

Do not export signal Does not export a signal.
RefOut Exports a signal to the REF OUT terminal.
RefOut2 Exports a signal to the REF OUT2 terminal.
ClkOut Exports a signal to the CLKOUT terminal.
PFI0 Exports a signal to the PFI 0 terminal.
PFI1 Exports a signal to the PFI 1 terminal.
PFI4 Exports a signal to the PFI 4 terminal.
PFI5 Exports a signal to the PFI 5 terminal.
PXI_Trig0 Exports a signal to the PXI trigger line 0 terminal.
PXI_Trig1 Exports a signal to the PXI trigger line 1 terminal.
PXI_Trig2 Exports a signal to the PXI trigger line 2 terminal.
PXI_Trig3 Exports a signal to the PXI trigger line 3 terminal.
PXI_Trig4 Exports a signal to the PXI trigger line 4 terminal.
PXI_Trig5 Exports a signal to the PXI trigger line 5 terminal.
PXI_Trig6 Exports a signal to the PXI trigger line 6 terminal.
PXI_Star Exports a signal to the PXI star trigger line terminal. This value is not supported by the PXIe-5644/5645/5646.
PXIe_DStarC Exports a signal to the PXIe DStar C trigger line terminal. This value is supported on only the PXIe-5820/5840.
TrigOut Exports a signal to the TRIG IN/OUT terminal.

error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.

/images/reference/en-XX/help/371025V-01/iio.gif

instrument handle out passes a reference to your instrument session to the next VI. instrument handle out is obtained from the niRFSG Initialize VI or the niRFSG Initialize With Options VI.

error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.

Details

If you export a signal with this VI and commit the session with the niRFSG Commit VI, the signal is routed to the output terminal you specify. If you then reconfigure the signal to have a different output terminal, the previous output terminal is tristated when the session is next committed. If you change the output terminal to Do Not Export and commit the session, the previous output terminal is tristated.

Any signals exported within a session persist after the session closes to prevent signal glitches between sessions. If you want to tristate the exported output terminal that the signal was exported to when the session closes, first change the value of the output terminal for the exported signal to Do Not Export, and then commit the session again before closing it.

You can also tristate all PFI lines by setting the reset device input in the niRFSG Initialize VI.
