Does National Instruments plan to provide DDK support (xseries.cpp/.h) for the new X Series boards? How about documentation for the STC-3?
I have several different custom OS X drivers for M-Series boards.
One of these drivers supports very high speed event-counting using DMA. Since the M-Series counter FIFO is only 2 samples deep, at very high speeds (e.g. when sampling near 1MHz.) the FIFO gets overrun when there is any significant latency on the bus. I note that the X-Series has a 512 sample FIFO, which would solve this problem.
Also, I know my clients would be extremely interested in the simultaneous a/d sampling on multiple channels available on the new boards.
Finally, the 2 extra counter/timers available would be extremely useful for some complex tasks.
We have been happily using the MHDDK for a while in order to use the PCI-6220 board under Linux. However, we've had to upgrade to the PCI Express bus, and so we purchased the PCIe-6320 to replace it. Unfortunately I have found that I can't use this MHDDK driver for this X series board. Are there _really_ no plans to support it? At the very least, I have been looking for the register-level documentation. Is this available somewhere?
Thanks, we'll look into it but the cost difference might be prohibitive.
I'd rather get complete documentation (i.e., register level description) for the product we have already purchased, if it's at all possible. Are there any plans to release this information?

indeed, this is awesome. I have some clients who will be very happy to hear this news.
