On the timeout phenomenon of PXIe-8840 real time system

In the development environment, I found that this frame has a timeout every 38 to 40 seconds.


However, after I downloaded and deployed the real-time program to PXI (components : PXIe-1082 chassis, PXIe-8840 controller, PXIe-6738 and PXIe-4497 card), I estimated that this frame also timed out, which showed that the time required to see the signal trigger increased slowly (as shown in the figure 2, there was a deviation of 0.6 ms in about 4 minutes); I want to solve the problem of frame timeout, but it will what is the reason for this?


Thank you in advance for checking and helping!

By saying timeout you mean that program gives timeout error?

Also, I noticed DAQmx run vi in the timed loop (at the bottom), this is not usual and right way to start the acquisition/generation.


The best way to thank, is to give KUDOS

Thank you for your review and guidance. Timeout means that the acquisition card does not seem to be able to achieve a very accurate sampling rate. DAQmx reads VI every 20 seconds, and the waiting time for data acquisition exceeds 1ms.
