Issue Details

How can I route the 100MHz on-board clock of the PXIe 5122 out of a PFI line from the soft front panel?

Solution

The soft front panel is an out of the box tool for troubleshooting with the 5122. This tool contains an easy to use UI to interact with different driver calls in the NI-SCOPE driver set. Not all driver calls are available within this standalone tool, so in order to access them you would need to use a separate programming environment. 

To accomplish this in another environment, call the niScope_ExportSignal with NISCOPE_VAL_SAMPLE_CLOCK as the signal, NULL as the signalIdentifier, and NISCOPE_VAL_CLK_OUT as the outputTerminal.
