Derived clock instantiation

I don't like static resource definitions FIFOs, Block RAMs or DMAs in my projects.  I prefer to have the code declare such entities as they are required because this makes scalability much easier to achieve.

For FIFOs, BlockRAM and so this is no problem, but there are two things we currently cannot instantiate in code:

DMA Channels

Derived clocks

 

To deal with the seond option: Why is it currently not possible to create a derived clock in code.  The ability to automatically have one piece of code accept a single clock reference and let one loop run at a multiple of the speed is something I've wanted to be able to do in the past but it is currently impossible in LabVIEW.

 

Please let us configure / define derived clocks in LV code.
