Issue Details

I would like to align my samples with ticks from the PXI backplane, but I am seeing drift in my results over time. How do I configure my PXIe-5172 to do this?

Solution

To sync with the PXI backplane, set the Configure Onboard Clock.VI to pull the clock source from there:
Feed the value shown the value for the Clock 100 or clock 10.
