Hardware

  • NI-5762

Software

  • LabVIEW FPGA Module

Driver

  • FlexRIO

Issue Details

The help for the NI 5762 states that the clock can be configured using one of the methods listed below but I'm not sure what resource to write to to configure the clock. 
  • Internal Sample Clock
  • Internal Sample Clock locked to an external Reference Clock through the CLK IN connector
  • External Sample Clock through the CLK IN connector
  • Internal Sample Clock locked to an external Reference Clock through Sync Clock

Solution

The CLIP for the 5762 has a CLIP resource called "Sample Clock Select", you can write to this resource in order to select a clock

Additional Information

  • For more information view the FlexRIO help resources.
  • One helpful resource is the LabVIEW examples.
    1. Searching for the example in the LabVIEW example finder using search "5762".
    2. Choose the most relevant example project.
    3. The project will be named "NI 5762-0x - Clock Select.lvproj" except for the "x" which is place holder for the different versions of the 5762.
