Issue Details

I was trying to use C# example (User>>Public>>Public Documents>>National Instruments>>NI-RFSG>>Example>>VS2012>>Triggers>>ScriptTrigger-SoftwareSource). It worked under another PC, but it doesn't work now, so I would like to confirm if PXIe-5830 supports the function of 'Script Trigger'?


Script Trigger feature is supported for PXIe-5830 since NI-RFSG 19.2. Please check the version of NI-RFSG installed and you'll need to upgrade to newer version of NI-RFSG (19.2 or above) to use Script Trigger with PXIe-5830.

Additional Information

A Script Trigger is a general-purpose trigger with a role that is entirely determined by the context of the dynamic generation script. A script allows you to create sophisticated dynamic generation operations. For example, the script can configure the device to generate waveform A, then wait for a Script Trigger, then generate waveform B. You can configure up to four Script Triggers for use in your application. The following figure illustrates an NI-RFSG Script Trigger model.
