Issue Details

I have the NI PXI 6509 module. Can I use it to generate PWM signals at a loop rate of x microseconds? 


The NI PXI 6509 is a Static DIO module. This implies that it uses software timing for the generation of its DO signals.

If used with a Windows system, anything faster than a loop rate of 1 ms cannot be guaranteed by the Operating System.

For difference between Static and Dynamic DIO modules, please refer to the Related Links Section.
