The FlexRIO Adapter Module Support media comes installed with component-level IP (CLIP) options that provide access to the NI 6584 physical I/O from within the LabVIEW FPGA environment.
In the IO Module Properties dialog box, select either the NI 6584 Full-Duplex, NI 6584 Full-Duplex No Termination, NI 6584 Half-Duplex, or NI 6584 Half-Duplex No Termination from the IO Modules list in the General category. The compatible CLIP items are automatically displayed in the Component Level IP window.
To use a CLIP item with your LabVIEW project, select the CLIP item in the Component Level IP window and select OK. The I/O defined by the selected CLIP automatically populates the IO Module item in the Project Explorer window.
The following NI-developed CLIP options are compatible with the NI 6584.
|CLIP Name||CLIP Description|
|NI 6584 Basic Channel||Provides read/write access to all RS-485/422 channels using a simple channel-based interface. This CLIP has 16 data output lines, 16 data input lines, 16 data output enable lines, one clock I/O, one clock output enable, one PFI I/O, and one PFI output enable. This CLIP also allows for clock output inversion. The input lines are always enabled. In the LabVIEW FPGA Module, each input, output, enable, and PFI line is accessed using a Boolean signal.|
|NI 6584 Basic Connector||Provides read/write access to all RS 485/422 lines. This CLIP has 16 data output lines, 16 data input lines, 16 data output enable lines, one clock I/O, one clock output enable, one PFI I/O, and one PFI output enable. This CLIP also allows for clock output inversion. The input lines are always enabled. In the LabVIEW FPGA Module, the data inputs, data outputs, and data enables are accessed using a U16 data type. The Clock_Out, Clock_Out_Enable, Clock_Out_Invert, and PFI lines are all accessed using a Boolean signal.|
|Caution You can create custom CLIP items for the NI 6584. If you choose to develop a custom CLIP item for your application, NI recommends using one of the provided NI 6584 CLIP items as a template while referring to the NI 6584 Specifications to ensure that the proper electrical characteristics are maintained. Failure to adhere to the specified electrical requirements and signal directions may result in device damage. National Instruments is not liable for any damage resulting from such misuse.|
