Issue Details

I have installed LabVIEW, Teststand, Teststand Semiconductor Module on my development computer, the Digital Pattern Instrument is not listed or missing in the Instrument Type Id drop down list of Filter Pins LabVIEW API (as shown below). How to resolve this issue?



To use the niDigitalPattern in the Instrument Type Id of Filter Pin API you should upgrade your TSM version to NI TSM 16 SP1. The NI TestStand 2016 SP1 Semiconductor Module natively supports digital pattern instruments that use the NI-Digital Pattern Driver, such as the PXIe-6570, and legacy digital waveform instruments that use the NI-HSDIO driver, such as the PXIe-6556.

Additional Information

You can install NI TestStand 2016 SP1 Semiconductor Module over a previous TSM version.
