Trigger Single Sweep with National Instruments FGEN Module

Updated Sep 18, 2018

Driver

  • NI-FGEN

Issue Details

I'm looking to trigger a single sweep of a signal rather than have it constantly sending. How can I set this up with the NI-FGEN driver?

Solution

These trigger settings are handled by the two VIs "niFgen Configure Trigger Mode.vi" and "niFgen Configure Trigger (poly).vi". An example of how to implement triggering in an FGEN application can be found shipped with the NI-FGEN driver. 

In LabVIEW, navigate to Help >> Find Examples and search for "Fgen Sweep Generator.vi".

Additional Information

For signal generators, and all of National Instruments' modular instruments, the help documentation will be the best source of answers and context. You can find the standalone help documentation on your PC under the name Signal Generators Help.
