Issue Details

I have an NI device that can be used with the SMA-2164 or SMA-2165 breakout box, but I am unsure how the pin out of the device maps to the pin out of the SMA breakout box. 

Solution

The SMA 2164/2165 is a breakout box for NI digital waveform generator/analyzer modules, arbitrary waveform generators, and FlexRIO adapter modules. Refer to the tables below for the pin mappings.
