Issue Details

I'm trying to acquire 10-microsecond bursts of a signal on my scope every 1 millisecond. How do I do this in LabVIEW?


You can do this by building off of the example program niScope EX Multi Record in the LabVIEW Example Finder under Hardware Input and Output >> Modular Instruments >> NI-SCOPE >> Getting Started. You can use the Trigger Holdoff property on the scope and set the Plot Relative To parameter of the example VI to Absolute to ensure the data is plotted in bursts over time.
