Issue Details

I am trying to synchronize a counter input with multiple analog inputs, but I keep running into errors. I am trying to figure out if this is possible to do and if so, how to do it properly.


It is possible to synchronize counter and analog inputs. The Synchronous Analog and Encoder Inputs  tutorial provides an example VI that synchronizes counter and analog inputs using a Producer/Consumer architecture.

Additional Information

The Synchronization Explained  tutorial walks through different synchronization options available to the PXI(e) platform. Depending on the hardware, the different synchronization options can be utilized to synchronize counter and analog inputs.
