Generating a signal on USB-6001

Hello Smiley Happy

I have an ultrasonic sensor that requires me to give it a trigger signal, that should be 5V and it should last for 10 micro seconds. Is there any way to achieve that kind of signal using LabView with the USB-6001 card? I've tried with analog and digital inputs, and the best I've gotten was 1 ms, which is too long, and the sensor isn't working properly. Are there any potential solutions that come to your mind?

As per manuals of this USB, page page 2 Analog Output

It shows that this device is restricted to 5 KHz which is means 0.2 millisecond. Unfortunately you can not do it with this setup.

Change the USB or the sensor for that application.

Kind regards
