SPI with DAQ USB 6210

Go to solution

Hello good day, I'm trying to implement SPI communication with my DAQ USB 6210 as a master are there any VI example already out there?

I think there is no example. Moreover, the DAQ DIO is static, in the sense you could only write one digital state for the pins at a time using API. So, you would have to build the application such that it will write/read appropriate digital levels to the DIO in a timed sequence. One other catch is generating the CLK, you can proceed with static DIO if the CLK duty-cycle is not critical for the SPI slave performance.


Alternatively, you can try the USB-845x series of devices for easy SPI implementation.
