Issue Details

Before I purchase my analog input hardware, I want to simulate a signal in LabVIEW and have it as the input to my simulated device. Can I send a simulated signal to a simulated analog input device?


NI-DAQmx simulated devices create a noisy sine wave for all analog input channels. Configuration of other simulated data is not available at this time.

NI-DAQmx simulated devices have certain limitations compared to NI-DAQmx phyisical devices. For more information about these limitations go to the following article: NI-DAQmx Simulated Device limitations.
