Issue Details

I have a PXIe-5413/5423/5433 waveform generator and am trying to use the NI-FGEN Express VIs. However, when I try to use the express VIs it doesn't list my device under devices.

Solution

This is a known issue with these particular waveform generators. The CAR ID for this is 623127. The work around is to start with the NI-FGEN examples and create a SubVI to suit your application needs.

Additional Information

To get the the NI-FGEN examples follow these steps:
  1. Open LabVIEW.
  2. Select Help >> Find Examples...
  3. Under the browse tab, select folders Hardware Input and Output >> Modular Instruments >> NI-FGEN (Signal Generators)
  4. Here you will find subfolders that have LabVIEW examples to do different actions depending on your application.
