PXIe - 5110 Simulation

Go to solution



I have a PXIe-5110 Scope. I am trying to simulate/build my code, however there is no option for a virtual instrument in NI MAX.


I know that the 5110 is an SDI based scope, however I'm not quite sure what that means. Will I not be able to control this scope using typical Ni Scope functions?


I am not sure where to begin.

Hey BerkeleyBear,


Are you trying to simulate in LabVIEW? If so, you would open your session with the "Initialize with Options" VI instead of the "Initialize" VI, and use the options string to set up the simulation. 


For a 5110, the string would be "Simulate=1,DriverSetup=Model:5110;BoardType:PXIe", and so the code would look like:
