Hardware

  • PXIe-5654

Issue Details

In the manual, I see that the PXIe-5654 can implement pulse modulation.  There is an external connector labeled PULSE IN, do you need to provide an external signal to implement pulse modulation?

Solution

Yes, in order to implement Pulse Modulation with the PXIe-5654 you need to provide a pulse signal from an external source to the device.  This signal gates the output--when the signal is high the output is enabled and when low there is no output.

Additional Information

The following are guidelines for acceptable pulse signals:

Repetition frequency: DC to 10 MHz

Minimum Pulse width: 50 ns

Input Levels:

RFON: TTL HIGH
RFOFF: TTL LOW
Max: +5.5V
Min: -0.5V
