Issue Details

How can I output a current that is larger than that specified by the PCIe-6353? 

Solution

  1. Set the programmed analog output voltage to result in an output of the maximum output current drive. 
The PCIe-6353 has an maximum output current drive specification of 5 mA. The value of the output current drive is dependent on the load of the device under test (DUT) and the analog output voltage specified. 
  1. Build a current amplifier circuit to amplify the current to desired output.
