OverviewThe example shows the usage of the read master SPI data on a single line (MOSI) in NI M-Series DAQDescription:This simple VI would demonstrates how to use the read on a single line of the SPI, which includes the utilization of the convert array and DAQmx functionsSteps to implement or execute codeTo implement this example:
To execute this example:
RequirementsSoftwareLabVIEW 2012 or compatibleNI-DAQmx 16.0 or compatibleHardwarecDAQ with C series Digital IO Module
**This document has been updated to meet the current required format for the NI Code Exchange.**
Is there documentation on this example? For example why are the input values being compared to 0? Why are there timeouts during the read?
Since its only a clip, there is no documentation, sorry about that. Also, the comparison to zero is done to convert the array of U8 numbers from the Read function to a single U32 number, and so it can be viewed as HEX, etc. The conversion stricly isn't needed, so if you want to work with a U8 array instead of a single U32, it can be removed.
I have another question, why use the DAQmx tools when there is the SPI Digital Waveform Library? Aren't the functions essentially the same thing?
The SPI Digital Waveform Library is targeted to our NI-HSDIO hardware, which has an onboard clock that can be used to sample the SPI bus, and several other digital IO functionality, that is not present on Multifunction DAQ products. This example code is just an example of using an M-Series DAQ board, and more information regarding the limits of using DAQ for SPI can be found here: http://www.ni.com/example/31200/en/
Wow, glad I asked, super helpful! Do you think your M-Series example would still work for and X-Series device? Specifically I'm using the 6343...
Glad I could help! As for using an NI 6343, I don't know. Give it a try, I don't see why this code wouldn't work, after all it is just DAQmx code. If anything, an X-Series card might have newer features that make doing this kind of thing easier, but I can't think of a specific example right now. Good luck!
hi,I am doing a LabView project that needs to acquire data at 30MHz from a chip in debugging mode. The chip uses SPI protocol to send data and the chip acts as SPI master. Do you think M-Series can support 30MHz clock speed as a Slave?
If not, would you kindly suggest me any other NI device that can be configured as SPI slave and is capable of acquiring data at 30MHz.
This would be a great question for the community forums: http://forums.ni.com/
I hope this helps, Model and buffer ratres.

I am trying to find a simple way to write over SPI with a USB-6351. I have used this example to successfully read SPI, but I have had no luck reversing it.
