Issue Details

What protocols am I able to test with NI High Speed Serial devices? 


The table below lists the various protocols that can be implemented on NI High Speed Serial devices. In addition to existing protocols, it is also possible to implement custom protocols with NI High Speed Serial devices. To check if our devices are electrically compatible with your custom protocol, please reference the device specifications document. 

In the table below, the first column include items where a reference design exists in the form of LabVIEW sample projects. Items in the middle columns mean that IP exists for the protocols, and NI devices are electrically compatible, but we have not implemented it in LabVIEW so there are no existing LabVIEW sample projects. The items in the last column are not electrically compatible with our High Speed Serial devices.
