NI DAQ 6509

What is the maximum achieveable throughput speed with the NI 6509?


I need to output 50 bits of data every 500nanoseconds.  Spec states 10MHz clock (100nsec)


an example LV will.

a LabVIEW example will be helpful.

If your device's sample rate is 10 MHz, this will also be the highest throughput of the device, with 1 bit per sample. Unfortunately, I believe the 6509 will only be able to output 5  bits of data every 500 nanaseconds. You will have to have a card with a higher clock speed to do more.


For an example that would implement this functionality, check out the "Digital - Continuous" example in the example finder of LabVIEW.
