Issue Details

I want to use the NI 9262 to output a sine wave or arbitrary waveform at 30 kHz.  I am not as familiar with LabVIEW FPGA programming so I would like to use it in Scan Mode on the CompactRIO (cRIO).  What is the highest frequency I can output through the NI 9262 using the Scan Mode? 

Solution

You cannot use the NI-9262 in Scan Mode.  The NI 9262 is only meant to be used on the CompactRIO (cRIO) platform in FPGA Mode as shown in the C Series Module Compatibility Chart.  The module also cannot be used on a CompactDAQ (cDAQ).

The NI-9263, NI-9264, and NI-9269 can perform analog output on a cRIO in Scan Mode.

Please check the software support for your C Series Module. Upcoming driver versions might offer additional software support. 

Additional Information

The CompactRIO Scan Mode is designed for applications requiring synchronous I/O updates at rates of up to 1 kHz.  For applications with higher-performance requirements, such as analog streaming at nearly 1 MHz, high-speed PID control loops more than 1 kHz, custom hardware analysis and signal processing, or I/O modules not supported by scan mode, use the LabVIEW FPGA Module with scan mode. You can also offload processing from the real-time controller with the LabVIEW FPGA Module.  For more information on the cRIO Scan Mode, please refer to Using NI CompactRIO Scan Mode with NI LabVIEW Software.
