Issue Details

I'm interested in develop a LabVIEW application that requieres the IRIG-B protocol as synchronization method. What NI hardware is compatibile with IRIG-B?

Solution

You can use PXI/PXIe-6683 in your LabVIEW application, to control this board your should install the NI-Sycn driver that is available on NI-Sync download page.

As alternative, you can implement the IRIG-B on a FPGA device like a cRIO, sbRIO or FlexRIO using the example available on IRIG-B Implementation in LabVIEW FPGA.

Additional Information

To getting started with PXI/PXIe-6683 refer to the example Set Time Reference.vi on: <Program Files>\National Instruments\<LabVIEW>\examples\instr\niSync\Time-Based\Advanced\
