My M Series PXI-6254 has two 68 pin connectors. The 1st connector for differential channels 0 to 7. The 2nd connector for differential channels 8 to 15. Is it possible to connect two SCXI-1520 cards in parallel mode to one PXI-6254 which has two 68pin connectors?
The last response was a bit misleading, because this limitation is not
a driver limitation - it is actually a hardware limitation. When
connecting the SCXI-1520 modules to the DAQ board in parallel mode
using the SCXI-1349 adapters, the simultaneous sample and hold signal
from the DAQ board is not routed to the second connector of the
M-series board. So, simultaneous sample and hold is not available to
any SCXI module which is connected to the second connector of the
If you do not require the simultaneous sample and hold functionality,
there is an <b>unsupported</b> work-around. When you create
a task to acquire data, you can turn off the simultaneous sample and
hold property for your acquisition, and you will be able to acquire
from the second SCXI-1520 in parallel mode.
How many PXI-6254 boards are you planning on using with the SCXI-1520s?
Do you already own the DAQ device and the SCXI modules, or is the a
