Simultaneous and Synchronized Operations

Acquire and generate analog data simultaneously, synchronize acquisition and generation

Use shared scan clocks and start triggers to synchronize operations within devices and between multiple devices.

Synchronization Considerations

  • Synchronization
    Synchronize operations with shared start triggers and shared scan clocks.
  • Trigger Connections
    Simultaneously start all devices in the DataAcquisition.
  • Clock Connections
    Synchronize operations on all connected devices in the DataAcquisition.
