Products with protocol decoding capabilities, like Virtual Bench for example, should feature a protocol word trigger capability.

For Example while debugging SPI on Virtual Bench with MSO it would be interesting to trigger if the 16 Bit Word mathches b001x0010x0000110 or h0A0A.  This is a fairly common capability in the market.  (http://literature.cdn.keysight.com/litweb/pdf/5990-3925EN.pdf)

It would be nice to have also on 657x with the possibility of exporting on on PXI_TRIGx to synch up other instruments or even better, but more complex I understand, on 51xx scopes.

Having the ability to connected a cDAQ chassis to a PoE or PoE+ switch.

Then the cDAQ does not have to be powered locally.

Ethernet is throughout our facility the ability to drop a cDAQ chassis with sensors and not worrying about power would be helpful.

Currently I am using external hardware to power cDAQ chassis off of PoE+ switch, it would be nice if it was integrated.

One of my nodes includes 4-slot chassis with two CAN cards, a temperature card and an accelerator card.

I would like to request a pass-through connector for mounting on a panel of a test fixture or a screen room.  This connector would be similar to the connector on the CB-68LPR breakout board and would mount to a panel.  The other side of the connector would be either wirewrap/solder pins or another connector for connecting another cable.
