Combining MXI-4 with 665x

Solved!
Go to solution

Hi there

 

This is my setup:

 

Master PXI-Chassis:

- Holds PXI Controller in Slot 1

- 18 Slots

- Several Modules 

 

Slave PXI-Chassis:

- NO PXI Controller

- 18 Slots

- Several Modules 

 

Now this is my question:

 

Can i combine data transfer with synchronisation? I mean, can i use MXI-4 connectors (PXI-833X) with NI-Sync (PXI-665X) at the same time?

 

I need to synchronize PXI_CLK10 and SampleClock and share PXI_STAR trigger lines between the modules in both chassis while using ONE SINGLE controller.

 

Is this possible?

 

Thanks a lot in advance.. 

 

 

 

Best regards
chris

Hi chris,

what you are trying to do should be possible. Please see e.g. this tutorial: High Channel High Performance Multi Chassis System

As you can also see in this post, you will need a master 665x module and a slave 665x module in order to synchronize the various PXI lines.

 

As is referenced in the post above, the KB 2WF8F22L gives a good overview of synchronization techniques.

 

If you need more information, please don't hesitate to ask.
